River Heights Intermediate School Reviews
When I was a student here it was one of the hardest times of my life because I was always being bullied and none of the staff cared they showed favoritism. I was laughed at, jumped, and humiliated and no one cared to stop it or help me so I left. I would not recommend this school for anyone's children.
I moved here last year and this is our second year in River Heights Intermediate School. I think it's a great school. The staff and teachers are awesome. They are very eager to help in any way they can.
There is no zero-tolerance policy at this school! Bullies run amok here. Don't be fooled by this school.
River Heights is very bad in all aspects including management. It is sad we are paying big taxes for this kind of school. By the way none of my kids will go to this school.
This school is horrible. I'm taking my kids out and putting them in private school!
I think this school is cute and big, however not big on trying to make sure the students that struggle have extra help. My 7th grader got all 'F's on his report card and I did not receive not one call from the teachers about him not doing well. I am a single parent who has to work to survive and keep a roof over my child's head, so when I am not aware that he struggles until it's too late, that does not help my child. I remember when teachers actually cared about the students and not just a paycheck or programs that help pay off student loans. I am not pleased with this school. This school has no extra help programs that I am aware of.
