    "RVCS is an amazing school. The teachers on this campus obviously CARE about their students and spend time with them individually, which is hard to say about some of the bigger schools. I have had a student attend one of the larger schools and one who is at RVCS, and our experience here has been far more connected. Teachers are accessible to both parents and students. The extracurricular activities are inclusive of all students. The drama program is incredible! My student is excited about going to school and talks about what they are doing in positive meaningful ways. As usual, people with complaints are usually the ones who seek out these forums, which is why I wanted to make sure and give the school the five star review that it actually DESERVES!"

    "We had a terrible experience at this school. The "project-based" nature of the curriculum worked well in some cases but was absurdly inefficient in many, many others. For example, on certain topics, way too much time was spent making pretty overheads and not enough time thinking about concepts. We were seeing warning signs so partway through our first year we spoke to numerous parents who had RV Charter kids now in high school and almost all of them said their kids were poorly prepared for high school. We pulled ours from RV Charter and moved on - and we're really happy with the decision. To attract students they give really enticing presentations at the elementary school, and I admit, we fell for it."

    "I am glad to see such positive reviews these past few months for RVCS...It is nice to hear children are doing well and thriving. That, is the hope of all parents for their children. This was not what happened for us...It was a devastating year. You respond to the negative reviews below your positive one, with the sentence," I don't know what all the negative reviews are about..." which is a fortunate and thankful thing. Be I assure you, anything written was well thought out, based from personal experience, and very serious... That being said, I have been told, that the staff has been very on point this year...the school was made aware of many things last year, they didn't know about...you can't fix something, if you don't know it's broken... I am sure the school is dedicated to dealing with any unwanted behavior, fast. They know what to watch for... Any staff changes needed, happened. That, is very positive.The changes sound hopeful, and pro-active... The bottom line, is every year is a different group of kids, with a different group dynamic. There was a reason this school has had to have a lottery, it had the right focus, and expectations."

    "This is a really great school for my daughter to spend her middle school years attending! From the very start, I have been so impressed with the teachers, staff, and administration. They totally care and understand the Project Based Learning model. I am not sure what the past negative reviews are about, but I can tell you this has not been our experience at all. This place has high expectations when it comes to behavior and academic work, as a parent, I really like that. My child feels valued, safe, and academically challenged. I appreciate how much the teachers communicate and keep their lessons engaging through technology. I agree with the other parent about how much confidence my child is growing into. :)"

    "This is an amazing school! Not only is my student thriving and making friends, but we are also seeing a rise in his self confidence and ability to make better academic choices. The teachers and administrators are very involved in the success of every student. I highly recommend this school to all parents and students who are seeking new and innovative teaching that kids respond to whole heartedly!"
