West test scores and pregnancy rates don't lie. Meth is also widespread. Dropout rate is very high. There are big racial problems. It's a dangerous school. They had 20 teachers quit last year. We moved just to get our kids away from there and in an area where they have a chance. It broke my heart because I grew up in DuPont and loved the area but I had to face reality. My daughter had a 3.75 at DuPont middle (she was 1 of 13 to make the high honor roll) but scored below average on everything on her West Test. That's scary. We sold our house and moved. Even if you rent, there are apartments in other areas with better test scores. Do it for your children. Get out while you can!
You suck

Look at the STATE, lady, not just one school. What you're describing is an epidemic in the schools all over backwards ass West Virginia, not just Riverside.

Did your kid try to utilize the tutoring resources provided? Or just give up because the teacher couldn't take time out of teaching the class of 30+(or more) students to give him some one on one time?

With the horrible pay, and lack of respect from students, I can't really say I blame the teachers for giving minimal effort. Maybe if they had some help from the parents. Have YOU tried to help him? Have you taken the time out of YOUR schedule to help YOUR son understand something, or do you just expect the people "you pay" to do it FOR you?

Maybe utilize the resources that the teacher/counselor gave the student to use, teach him to help himself instead of counting on a teacher, or superior to hold his hand all the way through it?
Haha.. You have to be one of those crappy teachers they were talking about. Do us all a favor and leave Riverside so they can bring in a real teacher that cares you crackhead!

My son went there and he graduated and went to tech trying to make something of his life... But he wasn't prepared at all in the Math.. Riverside High school sucks!!! I wouldn't recommend it to on one!!! If your not rich or very athletic you won't get no where.. The staff don't give a crap about the kids future they will do anything to get there graduation percentage up... Trust me I have had 3 of my own graduate from there... I hate it!!!!!
Agreed. When I went there I had over a 4.5 and they wouldn't even let me in the honor society because I wasn't a jock. That fat McBride lady picked her favorites only. The valedictorian didn't even get accepted. What a crock. Also, there were plenty of kids that got cut off of teams because a coach's kid who sucked was given the spot. There were tons of coaches. When we went to college, we were all behind in math and science. It was very embarrassing. Many of us struggled to catch up to others in college algebra and biology. I heard it is even worse now. It's really sad.

Riverside is a good school for the cliques. If you are not in one of the three cliques there, then your child will always be the fault in every single problem that occurs there.

Utilize the resources? When a parent gets told by a calculus teacher, that it was went over in class, and would not be gone over further, I hardly call that a resource. Thankfully myself and two others knew this parent and helped the child out.

Like i said in the last post, you are either in or out. To be in, be prepared to pucker up, if your out, be prepared to fight.

I graduated from riverside in 2002. I had a 3.5 gap when I graduated and honestly could have had a 4.0 if I would have applied myself more. I never had a problem being taught in that school. If I had any questions, they were always answered even if it was with the help of a website at home and not directly from my teacher. There were 1500 students in the school while I was there so it was impossible to receive one on one time. I was never a "rich kid" and never played any sports. I was always treated fairly. The b.s. about the bullying and drugs has been going on since I was in junior high school. You keep your nose clean and dealing with the bullying is what makes you a string adult who can handle what life will throw at you. I am now 29 years old with an associates degree from tech and getting ready to receive a second associates degree in the spring. I work 40+ hours a week and I'm going to school to earn my bachelors degree. Kids these days are treated like babies for far too long. They have no respect for anyone. I commend these teachers for dealing with the brats that are sent through their doors everyday. Each student needs to realize that it is up to them to make life what it is. It's not my job to put a crutch under them the rest of their life because "life is just too much to handle". Grow up and start acting like the "young adult" that you are and not like a child. Sorry this is so long, but I felt all this needed to be said.
