    "I attended River Grove Elementary School from pre-school all the way through eighth grade. I made wonderful friends that have stayed with me till this day as a freshman in college. I was taught by some of the most amazing teachers that I will always cherish and never forget. The school itself was always well maintained by the great maitenence crew. No adult in the building ever made the students feel uncomfortable, rather I felt I could talk to any teacher or staff member about anything. Going into high school, I felt more prepared academically than I could have. River Grove Elementary School is what made me fall in love with learning because of the environment it provided."

    "Very dedicated teachers, workload for students does seem fair. Never too much where a child is found frustrated or over worked."

    "I can not say enough about the teachers at River Grove. Although my child is only in 3rd grade, I have met some of the most amazing teachers at this school. Teachers that actually have a sense of pride and understanding. The teachers at River Grove seem to truly care about every student and will do their best to make sure the students are learning and no student is left behind. The teachers tend to go above and beyond to help students, especially students like my child who struggles daily with reading. But together they have given my child the confidence she needed to learn. These teachers truly are amazing and do work great with the students."

    "Originally my daughter started in a catholic school where for a full school year, she learned nothing, yet was passed to the second grade. When I moved in to the RiverGrove area & could no longer afford the catholic school tuition, I enrolled my daughter at River Grove. Her teacher back then, immediately discovered how little my child knew & immediately brought it to my attention. Together with the school social worker and principle, we all worked on the best learning options for my child. From where my child was when she started at River Grove and to where she is today is amazing. Yes she still needs help & falls a little short from where she should be for her age. However, thanks to this school & all her teachers, my child loves to read enjoys going to school and is so willing to seek help from her teachers when needed."

    "There does not seem to be any issues with race or color in this school. Children all seem to beautifully see beyond race or color. I believe we as parents need to learn from our children when it comes to this."
