Open Quote Everything about this school is out of control. Teachers are allowed to yell, argue, point fingers, and scare these children. The office staff is disgustingly rude! Recess is a joke, the supervision of these children is minimal at best. Going to them with a concern will start with understanding and leave you feeling blown off. Close Quote

Open Quote The administration is poorly run has very poor communication with parents and makes frequent mistakes involving enrollment and scheduling. Close Quote

Open Quote The current rating for Riverview is misleading. The staff are amazing! My son is challenged with a rigorous curriculum. The school promotes a positive culture and all events are well attended. I believe Riverview is a wonderful place for children to grow, learn and be successful. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
