Riveroaks Elementary School is a school with a great learning environment. Though it is not a school with a variety of programs, children consistently improve their math, reading, writing, and social skills. Considering that roughly 50% of the school have a family language background that is not English, the fact that reading a writing scores progress well at the school speaks volumes to the quality of teaching. (Even if the average scores are lower than average, the starting point was further back for many of the students. The bottom line is, everyone comes out with marked improvements.)
