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!

the community at Riverwood is very inclusive and diverse. The students population is almost exactly 30% black, 30% Hispanic, and 30% white, thereby a very balanced mix of various cultures. The school has options for students to participate in different programs such as AP, dual enrollment and IB, providing great opportunities for students to establish an impressive background that will make them favorable in the college admissions process. Additionally, the school offers a wide variety of sports for girls and boys, as well as several social clubs ranging from finance club to animal rescue club. The school building is brand new, and there is still new things to come such as a bigger parking lot and further expansions on the school grounds. The cafeteria offers a large amount of options for lunch and provides free breakfast to students in need. Overall this is a great school where everyone will feel at home and be able to pursue something that they love.
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.
