There is a major bullying problem at this school. Both of my children have been bullied several times in the past two years. And honestly nothing is done about it by the staff or the principals. The teachers are the only ones who seem to care. Mrs. De soucy is a fantastic teacher! There's other great teachers there as well. They definitely have their hands full with too many students per teacher.
My daugther attended Rio Vista and she love every second of it. We are moving and the only thing that wanted to hold me back from moving was Mrs. Archuleta she is awesome. We will miss U.
Great School. The teachers are good to the students and help them as much as they can. Parents need to step in and help their children succeed its not always the teachers responsibility. I was a student here years ago and i have great memories of the place.
Good School. The kids enjoy coming and love their teachers! Well organized staff with good ideas.
This is a good school that serves a very large number of children. There is too little parent involvement and the PTA does a great job, especially since they have very few parents helping out. Teachers work very hard to make sure students learn well and many teachers come in early and leave late. There are after-school academies to help students in English and math.
terrible staff. Too many students per teacher. The casa program allows students to leave early without parental permission
My daughter is in 4th grade and she has been doing great at this school. They have a wonderful afterschool program. Most of her teachers have been very good, and I love the new uniform policy, it is so easy in the mornings when it comes to dressing up, we do not go through any kind of arguments any more, and she is much better at school, knowing that no one is going to criticize what she is wearing. Children can be very rude and the uniform policy helps very much.
I have two kids that are attending to this school and am very satisfy with everything great teachers. This school has improved a lot. What I don t like it s the uniform dress code. I believe that the schools that have uniformed dress code are the bad schools so Rio vista doing that it doesn t look good at all.
Overall, I'm not real satisfied with the whole school program and encouragement from the school as a whole. Ie. Awards, recognition for various achievments.
This school has poor state ratings, and we were not impressed with the teacher's ability to challenge the students. Expectations are not high and communication w/ parents was poor (from administrators & teachers). Our son interacted well with the other students but we felt he was being held back because he was a more advanced student than most and the teachers were not motivated to challenge him.
This school needs help. I would not recommend this school for any child. I would request that they bus your child to another of their schools.
School is below average. Teachers seem unmotivated. School does not challenge the children enough.
Rio Vista is overcrouded. The ratio of students to teachers is high. There is also minimal supervision on the play ground. Materials are short and the children are the ones who suffer.
