    "I am a senior at River City and I think overall it's a great school. Some people say there are fights, gangs, drugs, fires but honestly thats all just blown out of proportion. Yes, there is an occasional fight. But try and find a single school that has never encountered a fight or other student drama. As for "gangs", there is no gangs. The staff or parents, whoever is saying there is a gang problem is being simply ridiculous because I know pretty much almost every student there and no one poses the slightest threat of "gang violence" NO ONE AT RC IS INVOLVED IN A GANG. It's West Sacramento, not Compton. River City is a great, safe environment, with a ridiculous amount of security patrolling every bit of our beautiful campus, that we aren't even permitted to leave during lunch, which sucks, but like, over all it's a wonderful school, with amazing teachers and staff who do the most to help you get through your four years, they always keep you on trakh to graduate and do everything in their power to aid you in any way. Most of the students are great, and the curriculum is well-rounded and I believe that attending River City can actually get you somewhere in life. (: -student"

    "I am a parent of Two student at RCHS. I would NEVER RECOMMEND This school to anyone. They dod not have it together at all. Kids are disrespectful, parents of kids don't parent, teachers "MOST" don't follow through. I have a student with a disability and getting everyone on the same page "thier own created plan" DOES NOT HAPPEN. I think the majoraty of the staff are idiots and do not care for the future of our children. MRS GRISAFFI on the other hand is amazing! The students like her, parents like her as far as I am concerned she should be running things. They did get one new VP this year that seems to try.....Sad thing is....I do not know how this school will manage to keep ahold of any good teachers. I thank Mrs Grisaffi for being a saint every day I see her!!!"

    "This school is amazing! It offers a variety of different classes and sports. RCHS offers a great, clean, campus with security. I don't know why people say there are a lot of fights because there isn't."

    "It's honestly not that bad of a school. It's a little rough around the edges, but that's normal. There will always be some bad kids here and there but you can't judge the entire school on that just because they stand out more. The "gang" activity is kids wearing the color red, big deal. Red is a nice looking color. There's this blanket of misinformation where the whole administrative and parental systems thinks there's some huge gang threat but there isn't. It's not gangs so much as it is races, and we live in a diverse area so you really just have to deal with it. The education system isn't bad either. If you ask around, you know which teachers will do the best job for each subject and all the counselors would love to help you get there and are very understanding when it comes to schedule changes. I take all AP and honors classes and I've yet to see any fatal flaws with the system in place. I just wish that admin would focus less on "gangs" (because there aren't any real gangs, just posers, and even they are pretty jovial and nice) and try to sand out the problems we do have, like getting more kids motivated. The image is blown out of proportion. It's really not a bad school."
