Riverwood High School Reviews

By a Parent on

Riverwood High School is the most mediocre educational institution I�ve ever come across. The faculty and guidance office have no directive to aid students toward success, rather, they believe in punishment as the guiding principle. All parents please listen. DO NOT ALLOW YOUR STUDENT TO ATTEND RIVERWOOD HIGH SCHOOL. The teachers do not believe in helping students in achieving any sort of success. Your student will not receive the necessary education for their future. No student actually enjoys Riverwood High School because of the mindset among faculty that no student should succeed. This is no exaggeration. Riverwood applies rule after rule that does not actually keep delinquent students in check, instead, students who want to achieve further success are restricted, and cannot succeed in Riverwood. Although rules are necessary to keep a safe environment, there lie many unnecessary rules that limit passionate students from achieving extracurricular goals within the school. [content removed by School Finder Review Team]. Other reasons for not attending the school include much drug abuse and bullying. The school�s drug problem is much larger than expected. This environment should be avoided at all costs. Do not allow your student to attend Riverwood, otherwise your student will not utilize his/her full potential and their future will be scarred for the next four years and beyond. Please head my warning.
