    "They finally got rid of her, but they should have taken the secretary with her too.. The problem I have with this school starts with the principle secretary (who thinks ) she runs the school...she should go to schools and be a principle if she wants... But until then she is just a poser..,"

    "This school is awesome. My daughter transferred here mid-way through 1st grade last year (from a MoVal school) and the quality of teaching was so obviously better and the curriculum so much more advanced and challenging. She went from being a basic student in MoVal to being top of her class this year (helps tremendously that Mr. Hein is an awesome teacher!). My son started here in Kindergarten and I LOVE the fact that they have full-day kinder, not half day. I volunteer once a week in the K class (so parents CAN volunteer, unlike a previous review) and it's awesome to see how Ms. Caudill is patient and effective with her students. Great school, great staff, awesome school!"

    "Mrs. Coe is grrrreat! The changes in my child is night and day. The projects, are fun and we all enjoy them. Finally a school that challenges the students. I've never seen my child so excited to learn. And is nothing like the other school was trying to portray. I say actions speak louder then words."

    "This is a horrible school since the new principle arrived a few years ago, test scores are down and parents can't volunteer anymore."

    "I think that since I don't have a lot of time invested yet, I can provide a fairly unbiased review. However, my son is a GATE student, so his experience may not translate well to other families that do not have GATE students. He also, and has always, loved school. He began attending Rivera last year after Spring Break. He was excited every day. His teacher was also very enthusiastic. And even though he was new, his teacher recognized him for all of his achievements as if he were there all year. Administrative staff was better than average and always positive and responsive. This year, with only a few days in, I think that I'll need to be present as much as possible to assure his current teacher does not abuse the power of emotional motivators, but it seems that his academic progress is noted and being tended to. Teachers are human. If you hear or notice something you do not understand or like, you must engage immediately. That demonstrates your investment in your child and lays a foundation early on. Whether a teacher is likeable or not, my son loves it when I am involved and it shows in his actions. If the parent doesn't show up, sometimes the child doesn't either."
