River Cities High School Reviews

As a former Student, I think more schools should be like this.

By , a Former Student on

Over time, my academic performance declined due to the terrible one-size-fits-all educational system that the United States gives us. Normal schools treated me like an idiot based on the fact that I wasn't as good at certain subjects as the other students. Being treated like an idiot for years by teachers and other students, I started to think I was stupid and hated school. I made excuses all the time to stay home. Then as a 'punishment' I was sent to River Cities High School and loved it!  I worked at my own pace and chose which subjects I wanted to work on and my performance improved dramatically. I went from D's and F's to straight A's. I went through my work quickly and found out that I am a lot smarter than other schools made me believe. Also the teachers at River Cities treated the students like actual human beings and made it a comfortable environment to be in while helping work on non-school related struggles like dealing with stress and anger. My attitude about school completely changed and I couldn't wait to go to school. This is how all schools should be.
