Worst teacher selection ever! The principal from Riverview took all experienced teachers and put new teachers at Wintergardens. What?! That's a great leader! This campus is crazy with inexperienced teachers and an administrator that talks but doesn't walk. She has so many tricks up her sleeve. To sum ...  Read more

Wintergardens is not good. I notice the difference from the school I switched from. Do I regret it? Not yet, but I'm so close! In becoming close friends with a teacher I have learned that 6 of 8 teachers are new! They have no support from administration which is never there and their TOSA who is suppose ...  Read more

I too agree that Winter Gardens was wonderful and the teachers were great. We had such a small-town feel which we loved but since LUSD opted to expand the Language Emmersion programs.

Mrs Mizar is a wonderful teacher, she has helped my daughter excel in her studies. Of course, all good things ...  Read more

the teachers and principle do nothing at all about bullying, they let the kids do what they please and pick favorites. worst school my children have attended.

I love how small the school is. It's a more close-knit family feel than larger schools. Plus the teachers and staff are great and there are a lot of parent volunteers.

My son has been attending Winter Gardens School since he started preschool and is now in the 4/5th grade combo class. He is having a wonderful year this year and I am happy with the teachers, the other staff members and the wonderful PTA. I also love the Peacebuilder philosophy, not only of this school, ...  Read more

My son is in the 1 / 2 combo class with Mrs. Mizar, and I am beyond happy. She is so encouraging, and uplifting! Last year he attended a school in the cajon valley district, that was just so cliquish, and I am talking about the parents! His teacher only had negatives to say about all the kids in her ...  Read more
