Teachers are great! Way better school than Carson elementary. My son is in 2nd grade and he loves his new school and made lots of new friends. He loves his teachers and he gets straight A's and wins prizes every week for good behavior. My daughter is in 7th grade at riverside and she also loves her new school. She and her lil brother always had education as well as personal problems while at Carson but now they both do really good at behaving and school work. They get homework almost every night but it's not too much. Love it!

It is a good school in the sense that it isn't too big. Most of the teachers care. I do however believe they are lax in protecting children there from other children. They are lax in listening. I feel they ignore and punish the victim. They ignore the parent. These are things I have witnessed.
