    "Love it!! This school has been a wonderful place for my daughter. This is her first year attending here and she is a High School student. She feels so much at home and loves her teachers (very family oriented). I'm so happy we chose to send her here for her last 2 years of high school."

    "Having another child in college already, I can tell you from experience the school s atmosphere and communication concerns for your child (and about your child) is as very much important as the education itself. I researched schools for many years while working for a local media company.I toured almost every private school K-12 in EBR. We choose RCA for the curriculum (A Beka), social experiences my child may receive (after all we ll be with these classmates for the next 12 years), family atmosphere, & complementary values. In comparison to tuition rates, it s the best value in area. I received hand written thank you cards for my interest in the school, follow up phone calls, and several positive contacts prior enrollment. We adore the Kindergarten teacher. She sends home a daily conduct chart and notes. I have popped-in , unannounced, to join classes, Chapel, and other activities during school hours. I have observed other classrooms and staff. I have spoken to other parents and they all have positive things to say. Each encounter has been pleasant; every question (& concern) had been addressed immediately. Thus far, we are very pleased with our decision to attend RCA."

    "Don't just walk.... RUN away. This school is horrible. All you have to do to see for yourself is to drop in unexpectedly in the middle of a class change. Everything the negative reviews said below is the absolute truth. Not only does the administration not try to change the behavior at the school,they constantly attempt to cover it up. Poor education (below grade level), lack of communication from staff, profanity and PDA in the hallways between classes... I could go on, but isn't that enough? I'd just be repeating the other negative reviews."

    "As a former teacher there I believe RCA is the best private Christian school around. It's really disturbing to read these negative reviews because they are lies. The only reason the former teacher is upset is because she were fired from RCA. The former principal was let go for ABSOLUTELY valid reasons. There are NO gangs! This is a family based small Christian school and Jesus is the center of it. It hurts to read these reviews from former parents and teachers who left on bad terms so they feel they have to write terrible lies about RCA. I love Riverdale and I will be sending my own children there one day. Enrollment is better than ever and the doors will be open for years to come!"

    "As a former teacher at Riverdale I can honestly say that this school is for the dogs. I also had my two children enrolled at Riverdale. After moving my children to another private school my children were far behind all the other students, even though the both maintained straight A's while they were at RCA. Gangs, students with tattoos, violence and drugs run rampant at the school. Voucher students are not corrected in the same manner as paying students. The former principal was terminated for NO reason and all of the middle and high school teachers except one have left the school. I would warn parents that at some point this school will close without warning and your tuition won't be refunded. There are only two sports available boys basketball and baseball. Do your research! The few electives offered are only taken once a week. No computers are at the school. While working at RCA all teachers were told to go on the Internet and write positive reviews for the school."
