i think as parent of a student at riverside that it should have a dance group and band... when i awas in school we had band and dance. and thats what i want my daughter to do... they should also have art starting at 7th grade... and i dont really like the uniforms because people still get picjed on about what brain cloths they have... alot of stidents talk about people if they dont have areopastle or american eagle cloths... my child has came home crying before, because of this reason... but this school does have a good teaching facility...
