Commitment to: Our Students
The students at Riverview grow up in diverse households, cultures, and economic situations. This means that each student arrives at the school door with unique strengths and weaknesses. Because of this, the commitment to our students requires creativity, innovation and access to materials and resources not always included in a typical budget. As mentioned in other sections, Riverview students achieve and succeed.
Elementary education at Riverview School District provides the tools for students to excel according to traditional measures of achievement. Students are also given the opportunity to shine outside the classroom. The examples below are just a snapshot of the ways young Riverview students flourish.
These achievements show the promise of Verner and Tenth Street students. But there is more to the picture. Both Riverview elementary schools need labs that put up-to-date Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math opportunities in the hands of students. The rapidly changing world requires students to not only master traditional subjects, but the “basics” now include more advanced STEM subjects. Riverview students need the materials, resources and facilities to build on the current, solid base and help ensure they succeed in junior high, high school, and beyond.
Riverview Junior and Senior High school the students’ elementary knowledge, and potential. Below are just some examples of the extraordinary achievements of older Riverview students:
Riverview’s diverse student body consists of students who are working hard, overcoming obstacles and succeeding as measured by a variety of scales. In fact, 48% percent of the graduating class was recently recognized with local or college merit scholarships.
Why would we list all of these successes? Again, we want donors to understand that their money is not being used to plug the holes in a sinking ship. There is strength and success in place, but the students need your help to ensure that innovative instruction with the most up-to-date materials, resources, facilities, and opportunities are available in the future.
For instance, opportunities like those presented by Congress of Future Scientists and Technologists are cost prohibitive for many students. Please help ensure that these bright and motivated students can participate in the inspiring projects that become available. Students are going to great lengths to succeed—they arrange schedules to accommodate coursework before the school day starts and take advanced courses (51% of students take AP courses) in order to fulfill their dreams. Your generous support will ensure students with the drive to excel have the means to do so
