Rio Rancho Public Schools Reviews

Rio Rancho Public schools like to tell their students that they are amazing and that they will be ready for college, but after graduating from Cleveland high school and then attending a university out of the state I can tell you that they did little to nothing to prepare their students for the real world. The teachers have all but lost the true motivation to teach and let students slide by easily with packets and busy work, the longest paper being 3 pages. This is nothing like college, in college I've written multiple 5-page papers in less than a week, the labs are nothing like the simplicity of rrps provided. The schools and the district are completely average if not less than.

I think overall RRPS is a very good district with a very diverse student body. There's really something for everyone, whether it's a club, a sport, or an elective, I feel like everyone can find their own niche somewhere, and the staff and students at RRPS are very welcoming to newcomers. As for my school specifically (V. Sue Cleveland High School) our graduation rate has been ranked the highest for several years in a row. I feel that the students are hardworking, and that the staff cares a lot about their success. I would, however, like to critique the use of springboard, which it used in the english classroom in high school. There is a test at the end of each section every quarter, and students never cease to average low scores on the test. My freshman year was the only year I didn't have to use springboard, and its the only year I remember enjoying the class.Getting rid of springboard is one change I would make, that I think would help some students enjoy school a bit more.
