connecticut magnet school reviews

"I know my daughter is exactly where she should be. I can’t imagine a school where students would get a better start, or where they would be more respected as young learners."

Susan, RMS Parent

Keatric, RMS parent and daughters

"When I walked into Riverside Magnet School for the first time, I was at a loss for words. I noticed the positive, community-driven atmosphere right away."

Keatric, RMS Parent

Samantha, RMS parent and son

"With students from so many different towns, RMS provides a better experience and allows my child to be around other students that he would not meet at his hometown school. He can learn things from others and I think that’s the beauty of RMS — so many different communities coming together as one."


Kara, RMS parent and family

"While the schools in our district are wonderful, we felt that Riverside Magnet School was the best choice for our family because of the diversity of students and staff and the Reggio Emilia approach to learning."

Kara, RMS Parent

"I was attracted to Riverside Magnet School for my daughter primarily because of the Reggio Emilia philosophy. I soon found that the school exceeded my expectations."

tisa, RMS Parent

"I have noticed a tremendous development and unlimited creativity in my children since they started school. My children want to go to school. The teachers embrace them, and they are learning to think for themselves."

Chonnakarn, RMS Parent

"The growth my child has shown since attending RMS is incredible. He has become more vocal in his ability to advocate for himself and has learned strategies that allow him to be more productive at school and home. The staff is energetic, caring, and creative. They allow the students to explore a variety of different programs and options. If they see a need for something in the school, they find a way to incorporate it. "

john, RMS Parent
