Bringing my son to Rivergate was the best decision I could have made for him! He has improved in every area. His attitude has improved, he has straight A's, and he loves bible study! Ms. Smith is a fabulous teacher! I intend to keep my son at Rivergate all the way through=)

Rivergate Adventist is a christ centered school that lives what they advertise. As a parent of a second grader, I was amazed by the level of staff commitment and excellence of the instruction my son recieved while attending this year. Sharilyn Smith, the second-third grade teacher, was a godsend to my child. Anyone looking for an investment in their childs future, need look no farther. Rivergate Adventist a place where your child will be loved, instructed in academic excellence, and have fun. God Bless!!! Submitted by a parent
