"I am truly thankful and blessed for the work experience I had at Riverview School over the past 6 years. It is a wonderful place that I never imagined I would fall in love with. I consider myself very lucky to have had the opportunities I did. My heart opened more and more as I worked with such a diverse, and inspiring student population. I often tell others that I did not help them, nearly as much as they helped me to grow, and learn to appreciate the beauty of life. I saw students with a variety of challenges and complex disabilities come through the campus, and every day, they pushed their limitations to the maximum to succeed. Riverview School helps students realize and accomplish goals beyond their wildest imaginations, with the assistance of staff who truly embody the meaning of the overall mission of the school. It’s been such an amazing life experience that I will always treasure." -- Ryan Fazzino

“Without a doubt, everyone at Riverview deserves a lot of credit for what they do because it is not easy. However, the students are the driving force behind everything there, and I know despite the challenges, the students are why we come to work every day. The students really are the best, and the overall culture and community that has been created at the school is one of a kind. As I type these words, an abundance of memories flood my mind and I remember what a memorable and unforgettable summer I had. It certainly is something that will never leave me.”  -- Ryan Donovan
