Academic Team

On Saturday five squads from the Academic Team made the trip across the river to compete at North Gwinnett MS tournament.  The C team finished 9th in the 27 team field, and the B teams in both the main and novice divisions advanced to the quarterfinals, good enough for 5th place. The novice A team won 7 straight matches before losing in the finals. The A team triumphed in all 9 of its matches, garnering its second title of 2019. Congrats on the first & second place finishes!


Thank You, Korean Parent Group!

The faculty and staff of River Trail Middle School would like to extend a sincere "THANK YOU" to our Korean Parent group for a delicious luncheon along with the wonderful desserts on Thursday.  Your efforts were greatly appreciated and enjoyed by all. 


Fulton County Science Fair

River Trail students impress judges at the Fulton county science fair.   Revin Jin, Aesha Shah, Zeenia Charania, Heng Yang, and Aarav Joglekar all placed in their categories.  Revin and Zeenia took first in their categories, and Revin took one on the top honors for the entire fair.  No school in Fulton county has as many students going to the state competition as River Trail.  While these students are already winners at the school and county fairs, we wish them even more success at the state fair.

Carpool Safety Procedures

RTMS offers a diverse range of after-school activities in the afternoon between 4.05 and 5.15 pm. We would like to make you aware of carpool safety procedures during student pickup from after school activities.

  • Students will come out at different times between 5 and 5:15 pm depending on when their club or activity dismisses.
  • Parents are welcome to wait in the carpool line – please be aware that this line does not move as fast as during regular dismissal.
  • We advise to park in the parking lot and wait for your student to come out of the building since club or activity dismissal time fluctuates.
  • Please remain in line and move up to the stop sign – even if your child has to walk over there and refrain from cutting into the line.
  • Feel free to move from the carpool line to the parking lot during the wait time in the carpool line - please don't impede traffic, other parents are waiting to pick up their children as well.

    Thank you for your cooperation is this matter. Safety is our main concern. We are very happy to offer a wide range of after school activities – and we would like to ensure a safe and fast moving carpool for the after-school activities.

For the safety of the students, please utilize the carpool side of parking lot (behind the brick River Trail sign) for student drop off and pick up. The bus lane is reserved for the school busses which have the right of way.



Beginning Monday, August 13, 2018, RTMS will no longer be accepting cash|checks for PE Uniforms, lockers, field trips, club dues, fines, etc. All payments will be made through Online School Payments.

Please remember that student drop off begins at 8:15 AM. If you drive your child to school, he/she may not enter the building until 8:15 unless he/she has a specific pass from a teacher to meet with him/her at an earlier time. We do not have staff available before 8:15 am to supervise students, and it is not safe for them to be at school unsupervised.
