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.
