High School Senior: I would definitely choose this school to come to again. I really enjoyed being part of this school. Everybody is welcoming and its a small school so everybody knows everybody. My favorite experiences have been part of sports. Sports are a huge part and most people in the community come to watch them.

Parent: Some of the teachers genuinely care about each and every student within their class each year. I can't say the same things about every teacher that does work in the school. From being on the inside I can say that some teachers care too much about things that interfere with their ability to fully focus all day everyday on their students. If the student has a great teacher, they will definitely want to go to school everyday and they probably don't have a clue about the teachers that are not there only to teach.

Parent: We moved our daughter to Riverstone midway through her first grade year after having her in one of the more highly rated public elementary schools with excellent test scores. She is now in 3rd grade, and we have been highly impressed with the education she has received over the past 2+ years at Riverstone.
At the public school, the larger class sizes and the big disparity in academic abilities prevented teachers from working with our daughter individually. Significant emphasis was put toward preparing the children to excel the standardized math and reading tests. This was the major deciding factor when making the switch to Riverstone.
Riverstone is not teaching the kids to excel at testing. Rather, they are promoting creativity that has our daughter engaged and always excited to go to school every day! Riverstone's IB program is well-rounded and ties subject areas together for projects and field trips. They also have specialists teaching art, music, Spanish and Mandarin. Thank you!
