About Riverview

Riverview School Sign
  • All educational activities at the Riverview Spanish/English Dual Language Program are designed for PreK-5 students around a standards-based curriculum in reading, writing and math. This provides an integrated approach to education that balances the children's learning experiences with their stage of development.

    Teachers focus on helping students understand what they read while building skills in phonics, language and vocabulary. The Project for Academic Excellence is integrated throughout the instructional day. All grade levels are involved in Reader's and Writers Workshop. There is a 60 minute period for teaching math every day.

    The Dual Language Immersion program prepares English-dominant and Spanish-dominant speakers to be fluent in the four modalities of Spanish and English literacy by the end of fifth grade: reading, writing, listening and speaking in academic and social settings.
