I have lived in Riverside for the last 7+ years! It is a small town and I love it for its diversity. Although it is small it is well mixed with different people and nationalities. To still see a small town with such a great mixture allows me to think that every place isn't bad. The township does events for many holidays, etc. I would love to see more events for the children.

***small town where the residents care & support one another, family friendly activities, small teacher/student ratio in schools where every student is genuinely supported based on their needs. Students are offered ample oppurtinities to grow not only academically, but through character development. Students are certainly identified by name, not by ID # as so many NJ districts!
Small town with a strong sense of community. Some parts of town are subjectively nice; others appear run-down. Some would say it's a great town while others dislike it as the really small town feel is understandably not for them. The only public high school in town, Riverside High School, is, in my opinion, a 2/5.
