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.

I moved to the Riverwood district just in time for freshmen year and I am so happy to have been able to attend for all four years. Originally, I was suppose to go to a school in another district, however my family and I decided on Riverwood. The teachers and people at this school are amazing. I have made some incredible friends that have helped me throughout the years, especially my senior year. They have pushed me to be the best person that I can be and without them (and my family, of course) I wouldn't be able to say that I was accepted into my dream school, George Washington University. This school offers so much for their students. From a quality education to fun sports events to incredible teachers (especially the lit. teachers!). I have loved being a Riverwood Raider and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else!
My experience at Riverwood International Charter School has been GREAT! Coming in my freshman year I thought was going to be challenging but really it was Junior and Senior year that kicked my butt. The best things I like at Riverwood are the different sport teams you can join and clubs. You get to interact with others and learn about different students religions and culture. Also, another fun thing is the dances at Riverwood. Like homecoming week we do a lot of fun events at the school like pajama day, match made in heaven, and more. Yes, Riverwood has been a good, fun experience.
