My son is in 10th grade...he likes the school and the great teachers. He was a freshman last year and had a great experience. His grades were excellent and he challenge himself taking college classes.

My daughter just completed 9th grade. She did enjoy her teachers. I was confused as to the EOC exams and FCAT. She was in honor classes. Honors English they read To Kill a Mockingbird which she read in the 7th grade so not sure how that would be an honor's class. Feel bad for the resource officer for this school. I hear about fights all of the time. Drug use in the bathrooms. Kids smoking E cigarettes in the hall and selling them also at school. Florida public school system for you. Principal has his hands full.

My daughter is a junior here and when she was a freshman we were so worried for her. There was no reason to worry. Yeah, this school is a big school but she loved it from day one and still does. She never complains about going to school each day and is part of the softball program. She loves her teachers and enjoys the classes she takes. The staff are wonderful and the principal is great too. I love the weekly phone calls to let us know what's coming up for the week. I also love his no nonsense approach to dealing with some of the issues that come up. Sure, you're going to have some kids who are problems but as long as your child stays away from the troublemakers, they will be fine. I have a child starting next year and I have no doubt he will enjoy it too.

We moved here from another state when my son was a Junior. We chose the neighborhood due to the great ratings Riverview High School has. We were so worried about him changing schools during high school. Little did we know it was the best thing for him! He loves the school, the faculty and even the principal. I never thought I would hear my son say that about faculty or administration! His grades have made a huge improvement due to the teachers truly caring about the students. Of course there are always some that are better than others about keeping the kids engaged but his certainly have! And as a parent, I have never been more informed about the happenings of the school than here! We are so happy that we chose this school!

I must say, this school is absolutely amazing! The teachers are great, the staff is helpful, the other students are friendly, nice, creative, etc. It's very easy to find new friends (as long as you're in some type of club or activity). Even though this school holds more than 2000 kids, it doesn't seem like it at all. Sure, it can get crowded sometimes, but it's something everybody gets used to. I'm going on to sophomore year now and I want to attend RVHS every year! :)

This school is a great school, and the main reason for that is the principal, Bob Heilman! Bob is truly a "hands-on" principal. He is friendly, helpful, and available to students and parents whenever they need him. Bob has been an educator for decades, and I can only hope and pray that he is still the principal of RVHS when my little ones move up to high school.

There is a wide range of extracurricular activities, which the students are encouraged to participate in. There is community involvement. There is close involvement with parents and rapport among students and staff.

My family and I relocated to Riverview High School from Philadelphia, and never regretted our move. This school is wonderful. All of the classrooms are set-up so that the children change their classes outdoors. Which is fabulous, especially if you came from the north and know how confining the school are. The principal Bob Heilman, is fantastic...keeping you up-to-date with weekly phone calls. My two sons love it here. I could not have asked for a better environment.

We recently moved here from NJ, my son started 9th grade in RVHS. We moved to this area because of RVHS, we researched and knew it was the school we wanted our son to go to. My son likes the school and most of his teachers, but it breaks my heart that he doesn't have anyone to sit with for lunch. When he comes home and tells me he sat in the library and had water, it's just not what a parent wants to hear. I know people in Florida are very friendly but I quess at 14 it's just hard making friends. I can only hope it gets better for him, but it is a great school.
