When I went to this school, I was always blamed for things that never happened or were never looked into properly. The teachers are horrible and do no teaching. I was constantly blamed for things that I never did, even when I wasnt even there at the time.

We have had Children attend this school since 2004, starting with grade 1, when we moved here. Most have graduated and live on their own now. 2 of our children still attend (we have 6 in total), youngest going into the 1st Grade and 2nd youngest the 4th grade this 16/17 School Year.The Staff and Teachers are great! They love working with the student bodies Parents on everything. In order for Student's to excel, the Parent's need to be involved. I am a bit flabbergasted on the negative and low reviews. You cannot blame the School for Children's behavioral problems, that is a fault of the Parent of the child(ren) that are causing the issues, school can only do so much and parents need to be willing to help.My review maybe biased as I have been involved with this school so long, but that is also the key, I have been involved.

The behavior problems at this school are abominable. The children have very bad discipline problems. I was shocked to see that the principal had placed so many problem students in one class with a first year teacher. Why would you do that instead of separating them between the classes??? The five children who were trying to learn, listen, and be good could barely concentrate because the other children were acting out and yelling constantly. There was no peace in the classrooms. The well-behaved children are suffering because of the poorly-behaved children and it is very sad to see. It is almost impossible to teach with the way that these children are acting. This school needs drill sergeants for teachers. The kids act like animals and do not respect the teachers.

My daughter has been going to River Oaks Elementary since kindergarten, she is now in second grade and I have NO issues with this school. It is nice and clean inside, they just got a new playground and an addition onto the school for more classrooms and a new auditorium. She's had good teachers, some more amazing than others, but they all work hard. The front office staff is always friendly and personable. We had one issue with another kid when my daughter was in kindergarten and the principal handled it very well. I cannot find anything negative to say about this school, other than maybe having more homework. My daughter may disagree with that, lol.

My child has attended River Oaks for several years. The school has declined in the last few years with low parent participation to an increase in discipline problems. The tone of the atmosphere/climate is set from the top down (leadership/administration). Instead of them being PROACTIVE, the administration is mostly reactive, but mostly INACTIVE. Unruly, undisciplined/mal-behaved kids & their parents run this school, NOT the leadership/administration. Students are allowed to blatantly disrespect teachers & staff with little to no consequences & they know it, so it just continues with minimal discipline action issued, i.e., time-out, no recess, warning, etc. As a parent, I emphasize the importance of education, how to act accordingly & the consequences of chosen actions, so I don't have to visit the school because my child is misbehaving. Meanwhile, my child is subjected to disruption/distraction daily from kids whose parents don't emphasize the same & who look at the school as a "baby-sitter". There are many teachers who are good at what they do & should be applauded, but there are many others who only see this as a paycheck. This is a sad look at our upcoming generation.
