School Reviews

Arizona Middle School In Riverside is prejudice towards children that are of different ethnic backgrounds including minorities. I would NOT recommend this school for anyone else''s child, they do not take bullying seriously. Also, my main concern was the leadership at this school needed to be changed greatly, people are not respectful in the office including the first person of contact which is the receptionist. A school should cater to children of ALL different ethnic and cultural backgrounds.Children should be able to come to school and be in an environment where they can learn, not where they are antagonized and harassed by teachers or counselors to where they don''t feel comfortable coming to school. From now on I will not be going to the school staff for my concerns about my son, I will be going straight to the school district.
