I moved to Lakeview's Spanish immersion program. The teachers are experienced, calm, collected and hold the students at the same standards in comparison to Riverview. CHAOS vs COLLECTIVE . Gotta love it!!!!

DRAMA! Yes it's true. All teachers from the kinder rooms were made to move to the preschool area and then all first grade teachers where moved into the kinder classrooms. OOOPS! NO. Actually, all teachers had to move themselves from one end to the other with no district help!!!!! I saw not one happy face this weekend. CHAOS! What poor judgement. Riverview and Winter Gardens are becoming a dump because of it's administration. While I was moving, opening boxes, and prepping my room all administrators where on their Labor Day weekend parties relaxing.

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 .

Your child will learn a foreign language here, but there are serious problems with the school: 1) Excessive use of worksheets. No hands-on learning. Homework is busy-work, not meaningful. 2) Outdated reward system encourages consumerism. Kids work all week earning "coins" for performance/behavior. Coins are redeemed on Fri to buy plastic trinkets. 4) No art, PE, drama, music. School relies on parents for this, and it is sporadic. 5) Siblings not allowed in classrooms, so it's tough for parents to volunteer for art, PE, or music (makes no sense that a sibling can't join for these activities). Not a family friendly campus. 6) TOO MUCH JUNK FOOD BEING SOLD at Snack Shack (a terrible fundraising program that sells junk food full of sugar, salt and fat to kids to raise money for the school) and in cafeteria. Corn dogs and Little Ceasars pizza are not food, they are junk. Time to change the menu! 7) After care options are bad. I have heard horror stories about ESS. 8) Garden is gorgeous, but there is no time to use it. It is for show. Not part of curriculum. Curriculum is all worksheets. 8) Impossible to talk to principal. She is not available to hear parents' concerns.

At first, I really liked this school. I had one daughter 2nd who was in the English program and one in K doing Spanish. Kindergarten was wonderful. Great teacher,warm,welcoming, she was truly interested in the KIDS. The English teacher as well. The oldest attended through 5th grade but after 4th grade I had had enough and I transferred the younger one to a small charter school. Like other parents have said....commercialized. The teachers act like they're afraid of parents. Their doors are always closed. There is zero small talk after school with teachers. The principal never remembered my girls names even after having meetings with her. These are my 2 younger children. I have 2 older ones that had already been through elementary school. So I consider myself to be an experienced parent when it comes to this. I have heard several parents complain about this. One day, I had my youngest daughters teacher tell me I could not sit with my daughter outside the classroom before school. She told me to drop her off at the play ground....What!!! It all sounded great when we started. A school K - 8 ....perfect....No LMS. That's another story. Choose charter. They have happy teachers!

Riverview- I am proud to say my 8 year old daughter goes to this school. It makes me sad to here some of these complaint from parents because cause traffic. It is at all schools and I know for a fact and our teachers and staff work hard. You as parents knew going in it was going to be a lot of work so lets work diligently together and make this a better place for all and remember to communicate, I have personally had issues in my 4 years unless you communicate with the principal she is unable to fix the problem so please take your negative comments and turn them into something positive, they are human too. And remember all schools share the same issues that we do. So focus on your children needs and work with the staff, they are human too. Remember our children are blessed to have this program so lets take advantage of it. Our principal is amazing and does the best that she can so remember to communicate with her and your needs instead of spreading negative comments for all to see. I am a parent of a child that struggles each and every day but focuses on the positive issues at hand are you? Good communication goes along ways try it you will see and you too can make a difference

I have mixed emotions about the school. I have had my child in the program for 5 years now. In the beginning, it was wonderful. Lots of communication, a close nit group of students and faculty. However, over the course of the last couple years, it has grown too big, too fast. We now have our K kids at another campus which I am not thrilled about. I am hesitant starting my preschooler here next year with a sibling at another campus. I also agree with the lack of communication. We are 3 months into the school year and I have received ZERO emails, voicemails, etc from the school. What happened? It almost seems as tho the promotion and growth of the program is taking away from the focus on our kids and their needs.

I am a teacher at Riverview and took great offense to the allegation that Riverview is unprepared for an emergency. All teachers are trained on how to respond to emergencies, and the students and staff practice monthly drills to prepare for lockdowns, fire, and earthquakes. I also know that the local police helps to review our safety plan and observe the monthly drills. As for parking--yeah it's busy! Parents need to adhere to the staggered schedule to cut down on traffic. I suggest that the disgruntled parent(s), from earlier posts meet with the Principal to discuss their concerns. They'll learn how extensive the safety plan is, and how lucky they are to have a school community that goes above and beyond to ensure their children's safety.

Here is the discounting review to the September 14 post regarding test scores. If the disgruntled poster looked at the API score in the "Test Scores" tab you will notice that the school has an 879 score with the additional information that it is +4 from the year before. The school is given an 8/10 score for performance and the score for similar schools is 2/10. I mentioned in a previous post that the API scores for socio-economically disadvantaged children are also above the 800 target set by California as stated in the footnote information. I challenge the disgruntled poster to pull their child from the program NOW so as to alleviate in some small way, the parking problem I and 900 other families happily choose to deal with on a daily basis. New teachers and parking issues are indicators of a growing thriving program that is going through some growing pains, not a program that is in decline as the disgruntled poster would have people believe.

Love this school! It is a cutting-edge school, with test scores to prove it. My kids are happy and so am I. The other day my child befriended a young Chinese girl who was lost in a store. The girl only spoke Chinese, and my 2nd grade son was able to communicate with her and help her find her family. I'm sure this is one of many stories my children will have on how knowing multiple languages have enriched their lives and bridged barriers.

I have/had 2 sons in this program. The oldest had a great experience. The school was really something special. I will probably pull my youngest son out. It's completely out of hand. I have friends in the Chinese and that is an even bigger mess. The teachers are new to the school and new to teaching EVERY year. The school has become so big.....if an emergency happened, it would be catastrophic. The test scores HAVE been falling and they are spinning it or retesting. Lots of pretty speeches, power points and promises absolutely NO FOLLOW THRU EVER.

Posted September 14, 2013

Obviously, if you read the words used in all these comments, you can tell they're written by the same person. Look at the test scores and you will see they are actually falling, with the exception of 4th grade (2012) and 5th grade science. The program has expanded beyond what should be considered safe on a campus that size (parking, emergency evacuation, etc). I'm sure there will be a comment posted in the next week discounting my review, but most parents who contribute any time at this school agree with me. I am counting down the months until June and will probably not return unless some of the promises that have been made actually happen. Parking is a MESS , quality is going down, program has expanded too fast, lack of communication and follow through=more stress & lots of chaos! Focus on the spanish OR mandarin and the safety of our children!!!

Riverview is an amazing charter that offers two language immersion programs (Spanish and Mandarin). The school has dedicated teachers, a helpful staff, and a phenomenal Principal. It has smart boards in the classrooms and introduces technology into the curriculum with the use of ipads. This school is truly preparing the leaders of our future.

We are dedicated to preparing our students to be the global leaders of tomorrow. Our outstanding curriculum is infused with essential 21st century learning skills including world language instruction, technology, critical thinking, and creativity. And that is why our school is a great leader for trilingual Spanish, Mandarin & English.

Riverview Elementary is such a wonderful school. The staff are caring, creative, and dedicated. From the janitors to the principal to the office staff and teachers, the coordination of services for students is top-notch. My son just completed the Spanish immersion program and I know he is on track to be a successful middle school student. His teachers were phenomenal. The level of academic rigor in the classroom was fantastic. The parent involvement and the PTSA are stellar. There are so many after school activities for the students. The classrooms have top of the line technology such as Smartboards and iPads. I am excited for my 3rd grade son to continue his education at this wonderful school!

Riverview is an amazing success story for parents who were desperate for their children to learn another language. A program like this requires extra personnel, specialized teachers, flexibility and forward thought. It's cutting edge and the plethora of immersion programs sprouting up all over Southern California in it's wake is testament to the huge hole it filled in American education. The cutting edge is also the bleeding edge however and though everything hasn't been perfect, at least it's headed in the right direction. Parent's opinions and input are welcomed and appreciated. More than half come from outside our district and are driving from as far away as Imperial Beach, National City, and Escondido to Lakeside! If parents weren't an integral part of the process they wouldn't come. That's thanks to the principal. No, she's not perfect, but anyone with any true knowledge of what it's taken to build this program knows, it could NOT have been done without her. The traditional system isn't built for it and she's a maverick in the best sense of the word.

Last day of school I love our school. Riverview is home to the "Global Leaders" of tomorrow. Thanks to an amazing principal and now a very supportive Superintendent, our immersion school is allowing these students to learn Spanish, Mandarin, English and Technology. We have amazing teachers who are not afraid to build new areas to support students. With a program that is about 7 years old, it's unbelievable how great our kids are doing. I just got my kids report cards. There is so much assessment information and they are above grade level in nearly every area. Thank you Riverview!! Thank your Dr. Kyriakidis and entire staff!!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
