What makes a good school, better yet what makes a great school? Is it a winning ball team, or is it an excellent curriculum, maybe it is a wonderful music or art program. When we get to the heart of a good school, it is more than mere books and paper and pencils; at the heart of a good school are people. Good students, good staff, and good faculty make the real difference. People are the most important part of any organization especially a school and Riverside Christian School recognizes that people are what really matter.
Each one of the teachers at Riverside not only has a passion for teaching and for students but for the work of Jesus on earth. This is what the Christian in Riverside Christian School stands for. “Christian” does not mean that nothing will go wrong or that things are perfect, it does mean that each person working at Riverside has one common goal, which is proclaiming the name of Jesus and representing him in the best way possible. Further, Riverside’s mission is to inspire students to proclaim the name of Jesus as Savior and grow in the knowledge and faith of the Gospel of Christ.
For the past 105 years this has been the goal of Riverside Christian School. Yes, through the years there have been some bumps in the road. There have been times when this goal got lost in bureaucracy and technicalities and human sin, but it has never been so lost that it cannot be found again by people who care about Riverside and the work that is being done there. Such people are at Riverside now. This place is more like a family than a school at times, it is a place where kids feel safe and cared about, where parents feel a sense of belonging, it is a place where the Bible is proclaimed daily without hesitation, and it is a place where every day is about striking a cord in eternity. What an incredible family!
If you have never considered sending your child to Riverside there is no better time to consider it than now. There are still scholarships available for any student who would like to attend. Do not let money be an obstacle between your child and a Christian Education. There are also teaching positions available if you are looking for a wonderful community and ministry of which to be a part. Making the choice of a Christian Education for a child is not just a matter of educating their minds but their hearts as well.
