Riverside International School Prague is an outstanding school. Parents and students appreciate the holistic approach to education and the enormous range of opportunities offered to the students both inside and outside the school.
Academic attainment combined with an outstanding curriculum, excellent teaching and high-quality care means that the standards achieved by the school are very high. The behaviour of the students is exemplary. Students learn with enthusiasm and it is obvious that they enjoy their lessons.
The quality of teaching and assessment are outstanding. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils is outstanding. The provision for welfare, health and safety is outstanding. The leadership and management of the school are outstanding. Relationships in the school are exemplary.
Being a student there is incredible, great opportunities and constant support for development. However, the management team is very poor. Lack of professionalism. It is essentially a bunch of people who have been there for over 10 years, thanks to this the director has placed trust in them and created a "gang" who police any sort of criticisms. Any criticisms get ignored, even worse those who suggest new ideas or improvements get ousted by the management and likely leave by the end of the year. A great comparison of the way it is run is the USSR: full of corruption, nepotism and bygone management personnel. The management are ready to sacrifice high quality teachers for being triumphant in the battle to impede constructive criticism from staff and students.
