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.
Review Rio Rancho Public Schools
Rio Rancho public schools cares about their education for the fact that they are always allowing students to have endless chances as well as possibilities for their education, however the safeness to their students can improve. Rio Rancho Public schools does not pay a lot of attention to how their students are doing at school, consisting of unfairness, bullies, and threats.
Rio Rancho Public Schools have a good system, however, I believe they should have more hands-on opportunities to explore job and future career opportunities, especially those that relate to college. I only got education of my future in my AP classes.
