Riverwood International Charter School Reviews

As a parent, I have been very please with the experience my daughter has had overall. She is an IB pathway, honors and TAG (gifted and talented) student and a 4 year Varsity Athlete. She has had to work very hard, as we discovered during her journey she had some processing issues (ADHD, ANXIETY and OCD)
Through our partnership with teachers and staff, we were able to put the right plan in play that gave her the same opportunity to success as all of her peers. What she has learned from the obstacles will serve her well for her next steps in life. She will be studying nursing at an out of state University and we couldn't be more excited for her next steps. We know she is equipped for success thanks to our collaboration with RIverwood!

Riverwood International Charter School is a school with many different backgrounds. It has many diverse students. There is also a strong emphasis on the International Baccalaureate program. It emphasizes leadership and asking questions. Riverwood also provides the opportunity to earn an International Baccalaureate diploma, which is a more advanced and internationally recognized diploma around the world. The people here are hard-working and charismatic. There is a friendly atmosphere among people. There are also many resources here. We have a 3D printer. We are able to do dual enrollment and take classes with a nearby college. We also have the option to take AP or IB classes. There are a ton of resources available! Overall, I’ve had a great experience at this school.
Throughout my years in high school, many changes to my academic career, friendships, and personal growth have occurred. However, faced with adversities such as difficulties in learning and participation in activities, Riverwood has tremendously helped students including myself with various struggles. This including opening up a wide-ranged writing and math center. In relation to tutoring, these centers also allow the students voices to be heard through poems, speeches, and singing to branch out to a variety of students. Additionally, Riverwood has been recently renovated and includes amazing clubs to increase the involvement of students apart from their school academia. Over the years, Riverwood has became massively inclusive and ensures that every student has a fair chance through school. While Riverwood may not be perfect, the school is diverse, challenging, and is open to several opportunities for students and faculty.
