My child is unable to read or write and is being pushed forward from first grade to second to third, we were forced to send him to a good school.
My child was being pushed through the grades, he couldn't read or write, I asked over and over please hold him back, they don't do that.
I love Rivers Edge! For parents, it has high academic standards. For other students, the teachers are great and P.E. is awesome
