Riverside high school is a bad high school. They tell parents it's good till you get there you deal with drama, & drugs. Every friday for years they'ed do drug checks in that school. They would have dogs and everything.

They don't have drug checks every Friday. Riverside has its dramas and drugs, but so does every other school. Riverside is a great school to go to.

I have two kids that go to Riverside High School and they have no problems. Actually my kids do very well at that school. They have a lot of opportunities that I ever did at the high school I went to. Drama, drugs, and bullying is at every high school. High school experience anywhere is what you make of it.

I was amongst the first to graduate from Riverside. I don't know how much has changed in 10 years, but it was a nice place to go, and the teachers cared more than they did at DuPont.

All schools have pros & cons...unless you want to pay for private school. The kid has to be willing to learn, and to keep out of the drama & the drugs.

Riverside high school is awful. My son unfortunately attended this school. Teachers are lazy, they do not keep Edline up to date. My son is in the honors classes and when I went to the teacher, counselor, and principal to get help because he was struggling with geometry, the reply from the teacher was, I post the assignments and grade them. I also post links to websites if the students doesn't understand the assignments to get help or you can send him to tutoring. The other two backed the teacher up. Tried to transfer him to a different class or school all together they refused to sign the transfer slip. Principal stated she needed good students like him at the school and if I didn't like this school we should move. I filed a complaint with the board, problem is a lot of students want out and it's hard to find a good school that has classroom space for transfer students. Riverside's staff only cares about getting a paycheck. I have seen very little teaching and learning there. I also have hired students and graduates to work in my business, math skills were poor as well as work ethic in comparison to other students hired. Most could not make change for a purchase without a computer or calculator. If over half the staff was replaced it may be a good school in the future. I can't wait till a teacher is being waited on at a restaurant, the doctors office, bank or depends on a former student to do their job to help them in life. The student will do as taught, only care about that pay check.

This has got to be one of the biggest crocks of BS I've ever seen on topix...and that's saying something.

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?

I help my son with his homework. I also hired a private tutor for him to catch up on what he was supposed to learn in class. He is a straight A student who was making a D and had never in his life made a B. Most teachers do not deserve raises, especially when nothing is been taught, but how to be lazy. Drug testing should be mandatory and raises should be given based on their performance and dedication to the students not years of service or extra sports they coach. They should not cram how to achieve high scores on the west test to get raises and more funding. The actual content of the West Test should be taught in class during the school year, so students actually know the material and have learned something from school. My son doesn't attend public school any longer. I am lucky enough to afford a private school, so good luck with the public school.

Kid doesn't learn?? Blame the teachers, it MUST be their fault. Parents like you is what's wrong with the public education system. You expect your kid to get one-on-one attention, because of something he doesn't "get", and that is just not possible in the overcrowded public school systems.

It's not the teachers' fault that their classrooms are full to bursting with mostly unruly & disrespectful kids, who won't allow the teacher to actually teach...instead they're forced to wrangle brats who aren't taught respect (not saying that any of those kids are your son, but I'm sure his classes are full of them).

Blaming the teachers is just ignorant. I'm sure there are lots of kids with this problem because of the disruptive behavior that other students exhibit. If a tutor can't help him, and you can't help him, what makes you think the teacher is going to be able to to help??

If you're going to drug test the teachers, drug test the students too!!!

I'd LOVE to see you people go into a high school class room & keep those punks under control, and "teach" them. I bet YOU don't have the guts to walk into a room like that every day.

So glad you can afford private school. I'd love to hear about his geometry grades next semester, I bet you anything paying for school isn't going to make a damn bit of difference.

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!!!!!

I graduated from Riverside in 2006. I graduated college this past May. I never had any problems with not being taught. My teachers always gave me the information I needed. That doesn't mean i always listened. The only problem I had, was not wanting to go to school my senior year. I was picked on, but not often. I smoked some pot and drank some weekends, but that's as far as it went. Most of my classmates have also graduated college. Of course, I hated it when I was still there, but now, I miss it every day. My parents made sure I had my work turned in, and if I didn't do it, they disciplined me. Maybe you should rethink your parenting techniques before you blame the teachers.
