Elementary School in Parkland FL

Riverglades Elementary School – The first elementary school in Parkland

  • The premier Elementary School Parkland Florida

  • Not only does it have great hours but also provides aftercare.

  • The School Rating for Riverglades is A+

Hands down the best elementary school in Parkland is Riverglades Elementary. Now I may be a little bias because all 3 of my kids went to this school.

I have intimidate knowledge and experience to give you my opinion. Riverglades Elementary, an A-Rated school, opened 25 years ago as the first permanent elementary school in Parkland. Riverglades implements the educational philosophy of integrated thematic instruction. Learning is connected to real world experiences through the Florida Standards. An enriched environment is created for students to explore and become risk takers.

They have a great arts and music program. They exposed the kids to learning in a fun environment that is warm and inviting. The personalized attention makes it feel like a private school.

The lunch menu is provided by Broward County so it leaves much to be desired. Breakfast is served from 7:30 to 7:55 AM each school day and is FREE for all students. Lunch is also served daily each school day.  The cost is $2.00.

Parents can apply online for free or reduced lunch with the instructions provided in our navigation menu labeled Free and Reduced Lunch. Ice cream is sold on Wednesdays for $.65.

The lunch menu is available online and lunches can be paid online. You will need your child’s student number which is available from the front office. I suggest sending your kids with lunch because it is pretty awful food.

Every year the school supply list is posted on the website and in the classroom for the first week of school. The Riverglades PTA will also sell school supplies as a fund raiser. You will have the opportunity to join when your child goes there.
