    "I tried sticking it out with this school but can't take it anymore. The teachers are mostly rude and very impatient with the children. The teachers do not seem to take the students with IEP needs too serious and is almost like lazy teaching in the classroom. I had high hopes for this school but unfortunately after all the arguing, bickering and effort to be my child's voice there is nothing that changes. I hope the new principal makes a difference, I hope the teachers start actually caring for the children's education. I do not recommend this school sorry."

    "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 am taking my child out of this school, too many concerns have been raised for me as a parent. Not only do I want my child to learn from the best, I want my child to be lead by the best. There are those issues about Christmas and Halloween as sad as it is 'YES' most supported Halloween in which I feel is discrimination but not all see it that way. My issue has derived from the fact that there is no communication between the leading authorities of the school and parents. My child was recently involved in a bully situation and he was very stressed about school afterward. The teacher did an amazing job taking over the situation and controlling it, the princibal on the other had was notified but not once did she make an attemp at contacting or communicating with my husband and I about the situation that right there tells me it was basically left in the teachers hands to deal with. I want to know the leader of the school is more involved and the past two years I have not seen that. As far as the comment about security, yes there is a button to press before entering but I my self performed a test to see how far I could go I was let in the school and I walked strait down the hallway."

    "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."

    "The school has changed drastically from the previous principal. I am happy to say that not all is bad. The security measures have been beefed up as they should have been. I do like that the principal does not let the usual handful of parents run the school with their ideas. As for a previous parent complaints. It was complaints from parents which lead to the dismissal of any type of celebration at this school. Pumpkin run is still active and is one of the few schools that does it. Shiverdale is put on by the PTO after school hours and used as a fundraiser for the school. The other holidays are not fundraisers for the school. It is your choice to keep your child home on Halloween. They do not celebrate Halloween all day but the last 30 mins for a costume parade in which parents protested to keep. Majority ruled. I do however, wish that the teachers union would listen to specific complaints about a few teachers that were allowed to continue teaching here. Over a span of 7 years these few teachers have had numerous complaints from many parents because of their attitudes towards children and are still there. Clean up those hateful attitudes and the school would be much better."
