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.

Our school system functions very smoothly, everything has an order and the staff and students are amazing!
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.
