Riverwest Elementary School serves an ethnically-diverse group of students from Head Start for 3-year-olds through grade 5. We emphasize respect, safety, critical thinking, technology and an appreciation for the arts. Riverwest is an MPS GE Foundation Demonstration School, an honor which provides additional support to move students forward academically through innovative implementation of the rigorous Common Core State Standards, as we prepare students for college or career readiness. Childcare and Community Learning Center (CLC) activities are held after school. Our school has a uniform policy. All students wear red polos and blue pants. Uniforms should be worn Monday through Friday, unless otherwise noted.
