Open Quote Riverside goes out of its way to provide students with a feeling of pride and self-worth. Both my children have attended Riverside and I am very pleased with their teachers. Each child was encouraged to develop their own intellectual interest and was supported in their drive to succeed. Riverside has that feeling of caring which is so important to children of this age.

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.
