Welcome to Winter Gardens Elementary campus. We are home to Riverview International Academy for Kindergarten and First Grade.  We are very excited to welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 school year! 

Our school offers a Dual Immersion Program with a One-Way Model in either Spanish Immersion or Mandarin Immersion.  Spanish Immersion is currently a 100% in Spanish experience.  Mandarin Immersion is 50% English and 50% Mandarin.  

Both programs offer a third language enrichment option to prepare our students to become global citizens with multi-linguistic 21st Century skills.  

Our site engages students on the 7 Keys of Excellence; preparing them to be transformative leaders in their inner and extended global community. 

Guided by Restorative Practices and Cultural Proficiency, our site assists students with conflict-resolution and assimilation practices to help them become compassionate, team-players, solution-seeking 21st Century employees employers seek.
