Our Students

We at Rio Grande Schools take great pride in being an A-rated school district and one of the fastest growing in California. There is a reason for that.

With more than 5,000 students attending Rio Grande Schools, our strength is our neighborhood schools. Each school offers every child a full array of learning opportunities, from Honors classes, Gifted and Talented, Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment to Robotics, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) and enhanced enrichment courses.

The Rio Grande School System is also recognized for continually exceeding the state average, even garnering international acclaim. Our state assessment scores and graduation rate routinely exceed the state average and our students are high achievers, recognized for performing in the top percentile in Advanced Placement (AP) courses and ACT scores. This has led to Rio Grande Schools being ranked in the top tier of highest performing school districts in California and the Department of Education awarding an overall letter grade of an ‘A.’
