Words of Kindness

See what our families are saying about Riverside Middle School!

I feel that their communication is top-notch!

From communicating regarding your child's status in the class and concerns to the weekly phone call and email update. It's nice to always know what's going on. The staff is amazing!

Our child at Riverside has special needs and...

the special ed department has been amazing in the RE 2 school district. We have been very impressed with how all the teachers and students seem to have rallied around our child and taken her under their wing.

Great teachers...

great communication!

I think that the communication at Riverside is great...

I feel like my son has been challenged and placed in classes that keep him engaged and he has had great teachers thus far.
