    "READ ! Riverview isn't so bad. I have seen plenty on this campus and wonder how and why higher admin doesn't find out about this. My daughter was in the multipurpose room for almost two hours along with 400 other students. There was one intern and the principal. What did they do? My daughter said coloring. Why did I bother to send her to school that day. I asked about the TOSA who should be mentoring the new teachers. She is considered a full time substitute. She helps no one. I asked myself: Why are all the new teachers at Wintergdans? I asked the principal here from Riverview and she said that the TOSA(coach) can better serve them in one location. So, I asked how many days should the TOSA be at Wintergardens. She said everyday all day and was very reassuring. At that moment I see the TOSA coming out from a classroom and walking the kids to lunch. She has no idea what their names are and has no control, but shouldn't she be at Wintergardens? So I asked the teacher who's class that was and she said that she was observing another teacher. Wait !? Shouldn't the TOSA be able to keep her in her class and coach her? REALLY CONFUSED. I'm afraid that if you're new it's leftovers time."

    "My daughter is in third grade in the Spanish immersion program. She speaks, reads and writes Spanish with ease now, with no previous experience. She loves her school. We drive her from well outside the district to attend this school..it's a private school education without the expense. For all the negative reviews, there are 25 happy parents. Yes, the traffic and parking suck..but it's worth it in my opinion. Every school has a few unhappy parents. My daughters teachers have been excellent and issues are always dealt with professionally by the staff. Realize no school is "perfect!" There will be issues anywhere you go. But the bottom line is the kids gets something special here (learning in 3 languages plus great technology) that you can't get elsewhere!"

    "I am a parent and a teacher a charter high school. I can validate that the curriculum and testing are done to meet the highest of expectations. With over a dozen years of experience in education, seeing the success of our students as proven by their test scores is enlightening. The results prove that these students are not being taught to any tests! These tests are not given in Spanish or Mandarin and students can not be taught test material in their daily studies. I have seen the success of not only this school but it's growth within the community. The strength of the educational processes, community support and involvement, and awareness of the need for the language skills in our globally advancing world are impressive and to be commended."

    "I have had nothing but GREAT experiences with RV!! Yeah the teachers can't talk to you before or after school, but that's because our children don't know that their teachers speak English!! But there is email and scheduling appointments with both the teacher and/or the principal. The cafeteria is following nutritional guidelines so whatever is on the menu is considered to be "nutritious" & there's always the option that you can make your own lunches. No one forces you to go to snack shack and it is also not used as a fundraiser, just something fun for the kids and 1/2 way through the week it's nice to have a treat!! I also have not school aged children and I like the new rule that you can't have siblings, do you know how hard it is to be the parent running the art in a class and having someone's little kid being a distraction? Use of coins as rewards is an awesome system- better than tickets. Teaches them responsibility and how to use numbers- a math & behavior lesson all in one! The staff is always wiling to help with any questions and concern that you have!"

    "1-3 Classroom/teacher decisions.4-Find a School that offers these prgms, RV has parents volunteer their time to offer PE & Art. RV offers prgms to come in drama, science, art. RV has a choir! BUDGET CUTS! Our kids at RV get more opportunities then most kids at other schools. 5. IT"S A DISTRACTION & A LIABILITY & if you think for a second that someone wouldn't sue if their child got hurt while on campus then your CRAZY! Read the news. Take a moment and look at it from another's point of view. I may not want another child in class disturbing my child. 6. Snack Shack is another OPTION & the kids do have healthy option to choose from. Your child might not be allowed to have Junk Food, but my child is allowed to splurge once in awhile. 6 & 7- Lunchtime food & ESS issues aren't a schools decision! Those are made district wide. 8. RV has a Garden Club that meets regularly during lunchtime for any child who wants to attend. Many teachers use the garden for education purposes & the GC sells there fruits & vegi's at SS. 9. You have to pick up the phone or go to the office & schedule an appt like everyone else I see who seems to be able to do so. Please take the time to educate yourself ."
