River Bend Elementary Ratings & Reviews

July 09, 2018 Submitted by a parent
Just finished up with our son's kindergarten year. He was part of a very diverse group of students, several learning English as a second language and yet he STILL achieved a mid-first grade reading level by the end of the year. This child was really not interested in reading/writing before kindergarten started, but his AWESOME teacher turned him around 180 degrees! We were impressed with how well disciplined the students are expected to be, almost boarding-school like, but in a loving way. Behavioral issues and bullying are NOT tolerated. Students are expected to respect one another and their teacher. If anything needs to be improved it is what is being taught/happening in the students' homes. I see no issues with the school itself. Kudos to the amazing teachers and principal for all their hard work, it SHOWS!

My daughter attends River Bend and loves it. I think most of the earlier negative reviews came from problems with the principal. The new principal is awesome. I like the changes he's made and the new school events he has hosted. The school has a lot of students from low income families, and many who know English as a second language, so consider that when looking at test scores and performance. I would love for the school to receive more funding to help these students succeed despite the obstacles set before them. Overall the school is doing as good a job.

"I worked at this school for a number of years. The teachers are great and incredibly hard workers. They truly care about the students and their colleagues. However, administration is a different story. The new principal, who has been in his position for about two years now, should not be a principal. He was decent as a VP, but it was obvious that the transition to Principal was difficult. There were THREE different secretaries in less than two years. Does that not speak volumes? Being RUDE, micro-managing, and not setting a good example for children or colleagues is NOT acceptable!He would expect his employees to set a ""good"" and ""positive"" example for colleagues and students, yet he was NOT leading by example. His priorities were incredibly out of order. There were times when he would not even greet a teacher or a student. There were times when a negative and unhappy look was upon his face, and let me change ""times,"" to ""MANY times.""A true LEADER, leads by example. He or she absolutely requires exceptional work, but they do that by setting an example of how it should be done, NOT the opposite. Over 30 teachers/employees have LEFT the school in the year and a half that he has been the ""leader.""I hate to leave this review, but it is necessary that it be in the open for individuals to know the truth."

I used to work at this school, and it pains me to give it a one star review. The other teachers (except those who have been sucked into the politics) are some of the hardest working and nicest that I've ever worked with. The students are lovely. However, there is a huge problem with the leadership of this school. The leadership is totally unprofessional and inappropriate. I would caution anyone who is thinking of working here to reconsider. If you are experiencing problems from that area, just know that there have been concerns that have been expressed before and that these have not been heeded. A former poster claimed that this was the result of them being connected, but I don't think it is. I think, in Wake County, they let principals do whatever they want to staff.
