Adolescents and young adults with learning challenges often feel like they don’t belong. Is your son or daughter’s current school providing the opportunity for success? Or is it time to look for something better – an environment that will set the stage for a full and meaningful life? Riverview’s programs are designed to promote self-esteem and increase self-confidence through a wide variety of success-oriented experiences.
At Riverview’s Middle/High School, students experience the pride that comes from genuine academic success and achievement. They have a lot of fun experiences and participate in a wide range of activities. They make lifelong friends. Their self-determination and self-esteem soar!
Our GROW transition program equips young adults with the skills needed to function more independently. They have the opportunity to try different jobs, see what they are best at, and discover what they enjoy the most. They strengthen vocational and practical academic skills, learn to advocate for their own needs, and take care of themselves more than you ever dreamed possible.
Is your son or daughter happily achieving their fullest potential? If not, Riverview School is here.
