    "I attend RVCS and honestly, its bad. Last year was quite a bit better, but common core ruined our education system. We aren't on the same standards as all the highschools offered in this area, making it basically impossible to transition. I've heard from many kids who want to go into geometry that they simply can't since common core is so awful. We get criticized by other schools, as we are generally behind on most things. The laptops are nice, but thats all the schools got going for it. Some people are nice here, but a large majority are racist and homophobic, and as someone who is LGBT, that is kind of horrible. Also, a subsistute teacher we had forced us to stop speaking of lgbt as its not school appropiate. Along with this, we were stopped by the vice principal from presenting something promoting lgbt. Why go to a school when you can't be accpeted? The pe program is good, along with language arts. overall, don't send your kid to this school. its awful and they wont be able to take classes they want in highschool"

    "I have been very impressed with RVCS on the Sequoia campus this year! The teachers and new Vice Principal are really nice and have made our family feel very welcomed on the campus. My daughter is again excited about school and loves using technology as a tool for her learning. This is a 5 STAR school! I am totally impressed with this place."

    "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."
