I think this school is going down the road of many schools in the area. Where it once was a shining star.. it is now just another overcrowded, undersupported school. I just think we can do better, especially with the parent support and sponsorship this school gets.
This school has such a great PTA and involvement from not only Parkland but the parents as well. This is such a well-rounded school.
My daughter has been in Riverglades for 2 years now and I cannot express how happy I am. The academic programs are excellent. My daughter has learned so much in the past two years. The teachers are caring and I am happy to send my daughter to Riverglades everyday. The extra programs that the school offers are terrific. There is something for everyone at this school. The level of parent involvement is wonderful. All of the parents get together and work with their childs teacher and work with the other parents to make Riverglades a great environment for our children. I cannot express how happy I am.
My twin boys have been enrolled in this school for two years now and it has been a wonderful experience. Both have had excellent teachers and the after school program is also very good.
We love this school. Theya re providing a wonderful education for my 1st grader. He is in the gifted program and is truly thriving.
My child is in the gifted program. He loves his teacher, Ms. Utariello. She gives them problems that truly teach them to think and not just to memorize. I have a tough time doing them myself, but he does them in no time. He wants to be in school earlier and earlier. This means one of two things, either he has a crush on someone, or he adores his teacher. I think is the latter. Thank you, Ms. Utariello and Ms. Klenke.
We moved here a year ago, in 2002, and moved to Parkland strictly for Riverglades. While others spend a lot of money for private school, we didn't feel the need. Our son is in fifth grade with Mr. Gauch now and we think he is very energetic and is very involved with the kids. The only downside is the large class sizes here, but I think as parents we can keep on top of things by being involved, making sure our children are where they should be. The FCATS last year were high, and our son is happy at Riverglades.
My daughter is starting 2nd grade this year. With an awesome foundation in Kindergarten(Miss Solenski)and 1st grade (Mrs. Civettini), my daughter has gone above and beyond our expectations. Riverglades is top-notch!
