School Reviews

1 year ago
My 9th grade granddaughter has always attended private school. I am amazed and grateful for the structured curriculum she is receiving at River Valley High School that ensures each subject is completely understood. Many times she has expressed her appreciation for the opportunity to completely understand each subject. The in-dept personal 1-on-1 interest and attention she receives at each class, fosters self-esteem.
