School Reviews

Gabriel Richard Riverview continues to be THE best high school option in the Downriver/Southeast Detroit area. The curriculum is challenging with many AP options and all classes are taught with a college prep style. Graduating students are FULLY prepared for college and consistently maintain a high GPA while in college because they have been taught to learn and study. There are many athletic and extra-curricular activities and all are encouraged to participate regardless of ability or skill level. The culture of the school is one of patience, inclusivity, respect and tolerance for fellow students, teachers and staff. The tuition "cost to value" ratio is remarkable. We have a son currently enrolled and will be sending our younger son to Gabriel Richard also because we want the best for our children. Gabriel Richard will help to cultivate the character of both of our children during the formidable high school years and will provide both of them many choices in terms of college and university options. We expected and continue to expect a lot from Gabriel Richard and this school meets and exceeds ALL of our expectations.
