The class work is nearly a full year behind their peers in other states. Also the assistant principal comes up with the strangest rules about school spirit days. It is almost as if they are actually trying to lower morale.
My son loves attending Rincon Vista and actually looks forward to going to school each day. The teachers are great and provide the students with a lot of positive feedback. My son is in 6th grade and has been moved up to 7th grade math were he continues to excel. Community is great and parent participation at the school is excellent. Great School!
My daughter was an excellent student from the 1st to the 5th grade and started 6th grade at RVMS. However, she was placed into the 7th grade math class. She struggled for the first time in her academic life. Her mom and the teacher wanted her to try it for a few weeks. I wanted her back into the 6th grade math class. I felt she missed many fundamental 6th grade math basics. My daughter recovered and is once again a straight "A" student with the help of the excellent math teacher. Certainly one of the finest public schools in southern Arizona.
