Rio Rancho Public Schools Reviews

One thing I liked was how involved all the teachers were! They definitely wanted to be there teaching the students and helping them strive for success. I liked the activities that were offered for students to do after school and during school. One thing I think should change is how they announce those activities, some are more glorified than others and I think every activity should be given the same spotlight.

I went to this school for 4 years, I loved most if not all of my teachers in one way or another. Security was excellent and I felt very safe and at home. Something I would change is the way our school uses dress code as an excuse to punish kids and take them out of class along with the way the janitors are treated. They should have more recognition.
Our school system functions very smoothly, everything has an order and the staff and students are amazing!
