School Reviews

i loved this school it helped me when i didn't understand Mr.Felisco helped me in math , and coach smith helped me stay out of trouble

My two children graduated from Rivercrest in 2007 and they are now about to graduate as an RN and the other with a Business Degree from ANC. I can say that they were able to get the training at Rivercrest to meet the rigors of college life because they continued to be in the Dean's List and maintained at least a 3.8 GPA. I commend the Principal for the Advanced Placement course offering that gave my children a glimpse of what is expected in college. Facilities are great; extracurricular is diverse; minimal discipline problem; teachers care about students. I would highly recommend Rivercrest High School.

this is a school that can become better at what it does by letting the teachers teach and students learn but the students tend to talk while the teachers are talkin adn the activites such as football soft ball and ex.but i wouldnt recommand this school to anyone that does not go to it now and wish i never came to it well that is it
