    "I was one of the parents that gave this school a bad review due to past expriences with the teachers and principal. I decided to give the school a try with the new principal and I will say I am so thankful that I did. I absolutely LOVE the new principal, she is on top of things and the whole atmosphere of the school has changed in a more positive way. I am happy to see that she takes parents concerns seriously and puts the children of the school first. Secondly I will state that my childs teacher has also made a dramatic difference, my child actually loves going to school and doesnt complain or cry bout the teacher. Mrs. Toner has done an amazing job at turning around my childs negative experience in school and has definitely made him positive about school. I have noticed that my child seems to be learning more and retaining more from school and I believe its because his teacher helps him feel more confident and comfortable with him self in the school enviornment. Thank you Mrs. Golden and Mrs. Toner as a parent I dont stress about my child stressing and feeling neglected while in your care. It has only been a few months but this school has already made a drastic change."

    "I wish there was another way to review this school, it is almost as if every bad review is countered with a good review. The last review about the teacher was a perfect example of it. It almost seems as if someone from the school is actually responding to the bad reviews as a parent. I also noticed that there were some bad reviews that have actually been removed I wonder why? there was nothing offensive about them except they included the principals name. I only know this because I have been researching this school to see if it gets better since I live in the area, I guess ill keep looking and I hope the good ones are actually parents reviews, that last review kind of does it for me im convinced that someone from the school wrote that. I hope to find a reliable source to search for schools."

    "My granddaughter had Mrs. Woytek. My daughter and I loved her teaching style. She is firm, structured, expects the children to learn, and truly is bothered when they have trouble. She has a degree in reading and is trained in reading strategies to improve a student's ability to read and comprehend. Her goal is to make sure students read and comprehend well. Because of this, my granddaughter became a good, solid reader and does well in all other subjects. It is important to remember everyone has their opinion. Please do not judge others based on someone else's."

    "Riverdale Elementary School is a great school! The staff is remarkable including the current principal. The teachers are very communicative with the parents, and bullying is taking very seriously. The school has an amazing PTO that works hard all year to raise funds that are given right back to the school. The school started some afterschool programs for the 2013/2014 year that have been amazing. The future looks bright for Riverdale and the envolvement from everyone is amazing! They do celebrate holidays, a strong petition from parents to keep Halloween + other festivities around."

    "I came on here to rate this school because I too am unhappy with the lack of leadership. Yes the security measures were raised recently, I believe it took place the end of last year and that is great to finally have something set in place. I am sure that parent complaints have a lot to do with issues but I recall last year a group of parents complained about the Halloween celebrations that were taking place and wanted it dismissed but a petition was put forth to have it and approved by the principal. Yes it is parents choice to keep their children home but for a child that does not celebrate Halloween for religious reasons sending them to a library and making them an out cast (in my opinion) is out of the question. It always amazes me how one event can be a fund raiser and another cant Hmmm. Yes a few schools in the neighborhood still do the pumpkin run and it is great for the children but I can agree that there are some issues that clearly need to be resolved. Excuses can be made, but parents who want the best for their children will express their concern. I do feel that someone should be present at the corner of Elm to guard people across as my child was almost hit by a car."
