The families who have their children in RCS are those who value excellent Christian education. RCS has a high academic standard, but God’s Word and the teaching of God’s Word takes definite priority.”

“I love the view outside my window, which reminds me of God’s incredible love, which is then shared with the Riverside school family, including students, staff, parents, and the community. When we gather for an all school chapel, it is a fabulous feeling to know we can worship one God together.”

“I love Riverside Christian School because of the sense of community. We are all one family with Christ as our leader. Just like traditional families, we are not perfect, but we are called to encourage each other and help one another to be the best we can be in all areas of life. This is what I see happening on a daily basis at Riverside from the administration, staff, parents, and students.”

“This isn’t just a place to work. This is a place to nurture and also be nurtured. My three children came to school here and they received love and guidance, along with an education that stands on solid ground. They learned that God is truth and you can live in this world knowing right from wrong.”
