Riverside Indian School Reviews
Riverside is an amazing school for Native American students. They are taught both regular curriculum and also classes such as Native American Government which they would not receive in regular school. I sent my son to Riverside so that he would appreciate home more and get a better education than the Oklahoma City schools were offering. In April 2012 we moved from OKC to Anadarko so that my son could attend Riverside but live at home instead of the dorms. He was told as was I that he was really lucky that rarely does a family move to Anadarko so that their child can attend Riverside and live at home. We literally moved as close to the school as possible. The only thing that separates our home from Riverside's property is the Washita River.
My daughter has now been accepted but she wants to go to Anadarko (she is his twin) and I really wish she would reconsider her decision but when we moved here Riverside wasn't accepting any more students for the year and so she already formed friendships with the students at Anadarko HS. My youngest son also wants to go to Anadarko but I hope that once he goes there he will decide that Riverside is the best place for him.
Riverside also provides the students especially those living in the dorm with nice extra things to do such as going to the Washita Mountains and the movie theater in Anadarko. They get to go shopping at Walmart and get free haircuts paid for by the school at a hair salon in Anadarko. A local church buys the students NICE gifts from the students "wish" lists and the students receive a $50 to $100 Walmart Gift Card if their yearly testing scores are high.
Riverside also offers a program that helps those students that are behind get caught up so that they graudate on time. It is also a highly protected campus because when I go there I have to drive through the guard shack and show my Driver's License to be allowed on campus and am given a Visitor's ID pass to wear and must also check out at the guard shack. The staff is VERY friendly and they CARE about each of their students! The principal is an amazing man that is professional and caring. Every staff personnel I have had contact with from dorm monitors, transporation coordinators, the wonderful Ms. LaCrisha in enrollment and teachers plus more they have ALL been very nice and you can tell each of them takes their job seriously working with their students and they care greatly for each one.
My daughter graduated from Riverside and now my son is there and will be graduating from there. It is the best decision that I have ever made for my son, he's happy and so is his family.
I also think Riverside is a good school, my son attends the school and loves it.He enjoys his claess and the student he had made friends with. When talking too him on the phone he sounds so mature now.
My daughter went there graduated 2008 she 's starting her 3rd year at OSU soon. I never had a problem with Riverside; IF.. I had to do it again I would send her there AGAIN. She loved the school and teachers the only regret is that she would have loved harder classes. BUT she is doing great now and her foundation was set enough for her to go to OSU.
I think that Riverside is a good school, my daughter attends the school and loves it. She said it's a better school than the ones at home. She gets along with the teachers and her dorm staff.
