    When this school first opened, it was exceptional. However, with the current leadership, there has been a decline in the overall academic performance, parental involvement and satisfaction, and teacher satisfaction. Teacher turnover has caused many disruptions in the educational process and a decline in overall cohesiveness and school pride. I removed my child from the school because of these issues. We will return to LISD for middle and high school.

    My six year old attended her kinder year with out any problems. The evening we went in for her 1st grade open house we walked through the front doors and her Principle remembered her name and greeted her with a smile!! I was happily surprised. We decided to keep her at River Place and not move because she felt comfortable there. Hearing her Principle call her by her name made me feel comfortable! Great school!

    My child has gone to this school for 2 years now and his academic progress has definitely gone down hill. He was performing above his expected grade level beforehand. The principal and staff are clearly there simply for the paycheck and title. Since I have consistently brought to their attention issues, now they are rude and speak condescendingly to me with a fake smile any chance they get. Needless to say, I will not enroll my child in this school again. Extremely disappointed.

    This is my son's 3rd year at River Place. Nothing but great experiences. The teachers are very dedicated. The principal puts the kids needs first and the PTA is always improving to provide more for the school. My son loves the teachers, programs offered and the school as a whole.

    My boys went there for 1-3 and they really enjoyed it- we were previously at round rock ISD and I felt my boys were a bit behind, but they caught up quickly- we have since moved out of state and miss this school

    Unsure the education being taught is up to speed compared other schools in Austin. After moving from AISD to LISD I was excited since the reviews for Leander were so much better than Austin. My daughter entered second grade this year at River Place and since as been on the decline. Finishing first grade she was above her reading level and was already able to do and understand most math concepts now we are struggling to get her ahead to a 3rd grade level. The teacher never seemed to help her one on one and did not offer any suggestions, programs or activities to help. She was nice but not a great teacher. We will try 3rd grade at River Place and if it doesn't get better we are moving.

    We moved to the area after the start of the school year. The staff and students were all so helpful and made sure all efforts were made for my son to adjust. He is in 1st grade, and he loves the school. They take a hands on approach vs stricktly text book reading. The PTA is very involed. We are very happy here!

    The verdict is still out on this new school. The principal says all the right things, but I'm not seeing anything other than an average education being delivered in an environment with a student population that is way above average. These students are capable of achieving GREAT things academically, but I'm not sure that this school is providing anything but the basic LISD out-of-the-box education. Maybe things will get better?

    Our son is in 5th grade here. He's having a fantastic experience and really getting prepared for Middle School. He has had about 7 or 8 teachers for the various subjects. A great start for a new school! You will be pleased by all the opportunities for you to be involved in your child's education...
