Military Families Residing in Mad River Local Schools
On behalf of the Mad River School District, welcome to the City of Riverside! The important service our military families provide for our district and country is genuinely appreciated at our district. We recognize that transitioning in and out of schools is a challenging experience, and it is one we strive to make easier for you.
We do what's best for students! And want to do that for your children! We strive to be a Military Family Friendly school district and embrace the relationships we create with all students in all of our schools. Please feel free to come to visit us any time-let Mad River be the CHOICE that's best for your children.
We are proud of our relationship with Wright-Patt. Our district is Military Family Friendly and we celebrate our partnership with the military!
Your children deserve the very best our public schools have to offer. We hope that your experience in Mad River will be a positive one and invite you to contact us if we can be of assistance while you are here. We are proud of our accomplishments and will continue our efforts to improve the lives of the children we serve. Best wishes for continued success and thank you for all you do to protect and defend our nation.
