I attended Rio Linda High School for four years. I had an incredible experience here between some stand-out teachers and great extracurricular opportunities. I didn't feel as challenged in my classes as I think I would have liked to, but in most cases, I found myself trying to prevent that by taking more upper-division and AP courses. Rio Linda is great for extracurricular activities. I was a part of a vocal jazz ensemble in which I got to travel and compete, a competitive cheerleading squad, yearbook editor, and a member of clubs including glee, GSA, and spirit club!

Overall, Rio Linda High School was a superior school. It benefited me in many ways, and taught me the understandings from right to wrong in all subjects. My high school experience was one to remember, yet it brought happiness and failure which taught me lessons. The school also provided many fundraisers for kids in need. Though the school was not very colorful, teachers still did there best to show students what they needed to learn. Rio Linda High School benefited me in many ways, and I personally recommend students to attend at the school.
All of the teachers value their students and their road to success! In my personal experience, I have witnessed teachers calling students to talk about what they can do to complete their graduation requirements and even to commend them on how well the students are doing. In addition, the school, and teachers in particular, always makes sure the their students are able to learn more or get additional help after school is available. The school environment is alright, but the academics are held to a high standard and students are always given the opportunity of improvement through different school programs.
