Riverview High School Reviews

As everyone after going through 4 years of high school says, "time flies in high school so live in the now and take in every moment of your time there." Being a senior, I understand what they mean now. Every moment in high school has been to get through another quarter, another semester, another year. Now that I have finally made it to the end, I wish I wasn't so focused on getting through school, but enjoying it. Riverview has the nicest staff that has helped me through these last four years of learning! Especially the IB teachers who try to make the stressful and busy life of an IB student as stress-free as possible.

Riverview High School has offered me so many wonderful academic, club, and athletic opportunities throughout my high school years. I am a part of their IB program and have been able to meet so many different people through the program while also receiving a top notch education. Also, there are so many diverse clubs on campus. The clubs not only give back to the school, but the community, as well. I think it is important that the school keeps involved with issues bigger than just within the school grounds. I hope the school continues to offer such amazing academic programs and opportunities while also providing a space where kids can go to enjoy themselves whether that be at clubs or other school events.
Riverview HS is a great school. The teachers are good and treat the students fairly. Besides taking your core classes, there are plenty of elective courses to choose from.

The one thing that is not good about Riverview is there are so many students. The average school population is around 3,600 students. The core classes have about 30-32 students and elective classes have about 25-28 students. Lunch time is packed to capacity.

Overall, I enjoyed my time at RHS and look forward to going to college. Go Rams!
