"My favorite thing about RCS is our faculty—without a doubt! I’m convinced you will never EVER meet a more dedicated group of people who love Jesus and love what they do. The best part of my job is observing teachers Biblically integrate their lessons day after day after day. Witnessing Jesus-loving teachers share their love for the Lord and teach through a Biblical worldview absolutely warms my heart."
“I love the sincere desire of the administration, faculty, and staff to encourage each student to develop a personal growing relationship with Jesus Christ. I love that these same people really know my own children on a personal level and genuinely care about supporting them as they walk through the ups and downs of daily life. I love that my children feel loved and valued by their teachers and the staff, and am confident that each and every student at Riverside is loved and cared for in exactly this same manner.”
“I think my favorite part of RCS is that I am free to include the truth of Jesus Christ in every aspect of my classroom. He is present in math as the God or order, in reading as the Author of Scripture, and in social studies as the Creator of all human society. Jesus is our model as I teach children how to love one another and work with all their hearts at the tasks He has set before us.”
"I love how Riverside Christian School is a place where students are able to be challenged where they are. Students here are taught life skills that will help them thrive academically and spiritually in the years to come."
“This isn’t just a place to work. This is a place to nurture and also be nurtured. My three children came to school here and they received love and guidance, along with an education that stands on solid ground. They learned that God is truth and you can live in this world knowing right from wrong.”
"I love that Riverside Christian School is a Christian school! The kids enjoy relating all subjects to the Bible; and current events are also related to the Bible. This helps the kids understand our world and their place in our world."
“I love Riverside Christian School because of the sense of community. We are all one family with Christ as our leader. Just like traditional families, we are not perfect, but we are called to encourage each other and help one another to be the best we can be in all areas of life. This is what I see happening on a daily basis at Riverside from the administration, staff, parents, and students.”
“I love the view outside my window, which reminds me of God’s incredible love, which is then shared with the Riverside school family, including students, staff, parents and the community. When we gather for an all school chapel, it is a fabulous feeling to know we can worship one God together.”
“I love Riverside Christian School because you are rubbing shoulders with those who appreciate and put a high priority on Christian education. The families who have their children in RCS are those who value excellent Christian education. RCS has a high academic standard, but God’s Word and the teaching of God’s Word takes definite priority.”
“I love the community of Riverside Christian School. The faculty and parents are able to work together to provide kids with the foundation they need for the future, both academically and spiritually. Having a common goal makes what we do more effective and meaningful.”
“RCS is the best place to teach science in Yakima. We have a huge amount of biodiversity on campus—from wetlands to the pond to arid areas. I frequently see migratory birds in the pond. We are involved in long-term research in the pond. Additionally, we are within a few minutes of native shrub steppe habitat and the Yakima River. I like the science lab set up. The students are engaging and I enjoy my colleagues and administration.”
“Riverside Christian School is committed to the teaching of God’s truth, as well as the application of truth to everyday life. Students are regularly challenged to see all of life as the classroom in which they live out the truths they have been taught.”
“I love that I can pray freely with my students. I love that the administration works closely with the teachers, staff, and students. I love that the school is small enough for everyone to know each other, which allows us to support each other in trials/praises of our lives.”
“The attitude of the entire staff demonstrates God’s love. We are all willing to help each other any time it is needed. Being able to teach sacred songs all year around and especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas is a joy to me.”
"RCS has a great administrative staff supportive of both teachers and students in their overall success as individuals. I’ve also really enjoyed building relationships with students. The students are very obedient and the whole student body seems to possess a strong sense of camaraderie."
“What I love most about Riverside Christian School is the positive, loving atmosphere. I love the small class sizes, as it allows me the opportunity to get to know the students, as well as help them improve upon their keyboarding skills.”
"I love working with the students to develop their leadership skills through student government and class activities as well as challenging them to seek God’s plan for their future and step out to reach their God-given potential."
"My favorite thing about RCS is the awesome, supportive staff and Christian environment where I can talk about Jesus every day! I also love getting to know the students, and working with the great kitchen staff and volunteers."
