    "I have to agree! I too have had issues with 7th grade English teacher. He is arrogant and disrespectful. When discussed with assistant principal, my concerns were dismissed. They both have a lot to learn when dealing with children and parents. I thought schools were suppose to work together with parents to make our kids successful. These people are just there for the paycheck. I don't know if anyone ever looks at these comments but I hope there is change soon for our kids sake!"

    "This school is a mess ever since they began hiring teachers with no experience! I have 3 students in 6, 7, & 8th grades. 1st, the positive. 8th grade student LOVES math for the 1st time ever! Was amazed at conference by how well my child's needs are being met both academically & socially. 8th Math teacher REALLY cares about my kid!! 7th grader is challenged in math and feels comfortable. Impressed with teacher as well. Very sincere. HOWEVER 6th grade math is a mess. Teacher never communicates & lacks an understanding of subject matter. She talks down to parents and gets frustrated when questioned about concerns. 7th grade language arts teacher is rude, condescending & a BULLY!!. IF he responds to emails, I feel like I am bothering him. He talks a good talk but basically says nothing. Absolutely NO classroom control. My child says she can't even concentrate because kids are never paying attention. I felt like this school was a great fit for my children, but now I'm not so sure. Love the whole kids at hope concept but doesn't seem to be followed in some classrooms. If it weren't for the few AMAZING teachers, I would take my children to another school."

    "This school is amazing. My children attend this school for three years, and where very ahead. They were involved in student council, band, njhs, and sports. They all did amazing. The teachers are very comprehensive! Mrs. Aguilar was genuinely amazing. I am grateful that she was my child's teacher. She did an amazing job teaching her. Ms.Malave was also a great teacher. when my kids had to move school because we moved houses they were a head. Rio Vista is an amazing school that provides an outstanding form of education. I highly recommend this school to everyone."

    "Relocated from TX for wrk - schools here in general are disappointing. 8th grader who is very passive girl was bullied & punched w/in 1st 3wks. that aside the student quality is rough - not sure what kind of homes some of these kids come from but some even scare me! my 2nd grader did great, but very outgoing kid anyway. Teacher said she is ahead of pace - but never did anything to accelerate her (like gifted testing, advance placement - but let her "help" struggling peers). My 8th grader struggles in math but an A student elsewhere. her math teacher was fab!other 8th grade teachers are lazy. They quit teaching by mid april (came home w/ a pack of riddles they worked on the whole last month instead of doing actual science work - the riddles weren't even science related). get to 9th grade now & find out the teachers did not recommend my student for any advanced classes even though she was honor society student in TX (better & tougher academically) & exceeded on AIMS? so starting off HS having to fight to get changed to honors (which is full of course). Like New principal -firm disciplinarian - needed here. Btm line - u have to push to get what's needed for your kid to excel."

    "I attended this school from when it opened in 2002(2003)-2008, and it was a great school. I loved my teachers, and the staff knew me well, and I knew them well. I had some bully problems in 2005, when they decided to combine the 5th grade and the 6th grade, and I was picked on by both grades. The school didn't do very much to prevent the bullying, they only sent the kids to the office multiple times, and just made them sit there, while, it didn't teach them a lesson, because their parents didn't care. As the process didn't work, they still did it, and the bullying rose, I had to handle the situation myself, by fighting the bullies. I also, got severely punished, for stating my own political views to a teacher, who had opposite views as me, I was punished, because of my views on the government... Other than that, the school was great, I had a great experience, and I was glad I attended that school."
