We've been at the school for 4 years now and we love it! Awesome teachers and principal! Kind and helpful ladies in the office! A dedicated PTA with more and more parents stepping up to help as needed! My 1st grader and 3rd grader are very happy here! Rio Vista Rockets Rock!

I wish I could give this school a 5! The moral has changed. Seems like the school caters to those who need extra help, they leave out those who need to be challenged. Its no wonder so many families have left. And yes no school is perfect, but none who left are willing to come back. At one point this was a great school. Maybe 10 years ago. But not now. Hope for a better future.

This school is amazing!!! We are new to this school. Our daughters attend 3rd and 5th grade, the teachers are amazing! Everyone made the transition for our children so easy. Our daughters already love this school, and so do we! We are so happy and proud to be part of the Rio Vista community :)

Rio Vista is an extraordinary school where all the staff, from the Principal to the teachers and PTA make the teaching business their own personal one. We've been there for 5 years and will be there for 4 more... just wished there were more parent involvement but that is up to each one of us.

My child and I LOVE this school! She is in Kindergarten and I couldn't have asked for a better place to have her in her first year of "real" school. The teacher, Ms. Lochead is truly wonderful. They give me the chance as a parent to be involved, helping in the classroom and giving many opportunities to be involved in school activities. The principal and vice principal are hands on and take a personal interest in the children as well. We are extremely happy and proud to be part of Rio Vista.

Can't say much positive about this school. A good portion of teachers seem like they have lost their enthusiasm to teach and the teachers who really displayed excellence all seemed to have vanished around the same time. Being a "Distinguished" school seems to outweigh the need to actually educate the children. There are so many who seem to not be receiving the help that they desperately need and are failing at an alarming rate. My own child is being subjected to the ill mannered disrespectful lot in this school with playground attendants talking to each other and doing who knows what on their phones and not addressing aggression issues. I got a note sent home with my child saying that she is starting fights when in actuality, the child threw a hard ball at her head and she defended herself due to lack of supervision. My child has also been released to people not on the schools mandatory release form, missing articles of clothing said to have been "donated" were actually still in the school. I am fed up and out of patience. I can't wait to find a school focused students and education. Hopefully, I will be able to transfer my child without a great deal of resistance.

This is a decent school overall but they are far too concerned with being a California Distinguished School. That great and all, but what about the kids that struggle? My daughter was doing great in Kinder and 1st grade. Once she got into 2nd grade she started to fall behind. 3rd grade was a nightmare. I've pleaded with the school to give my kid some additional help. Well, that didn't happen. Now she's in 4th grade and I'm scared that she will fall even further behind. I'm all for challenging the students but the homework is too hard. Kids should be able to do their homework without supervision. The parent shouldn't have to sit there and basically do the homework for them. Last night I sat with my daughter for 2 1/2 doing homework and it still wasn't done. That's insane!

I am a proud parent of 2 Rio Vista Elementary students. Without the teachers and staff at this school my boys would not continue flourish in the academic manner that they have. I have been a Rio Vista Parent for 7 years and feel SO fortunate to have my children taught by the teachers and staff that have dedicated themselves to this school. This is a school with heart, pride, and compassion. They give their all to my children and all the children that are on campus. Parent involvement is also a crucial factor and the teachers and staff are highly supportive and very welcoming to particiapting parents. If their is a sole that has a bad word to say about Rio Vista Elementary, then they need to become an active part of their child's education, because they are obviously not taking advantage of the knowledgable teachers and staff that Rio Vista employs.

How can people rate this school as good? The reports from the Star testing are out and it's rated the 4th worst school in the Saugus School District. The 4th WORST out of 15?? Numbers don't lie! Why would you send your kid here? My daughter had 3 yes 3 second grade teachers in one year! How can that be? I was sent a note home after the new teachers had already been teaching? How is that great leadership? This school is a joke! It's a school with poor leadership and poor teachers. 4th worst in the district!! The numbers do no lie! So how could all these parents keep saying what a wonderful school this is? It's mired in problems! Hahaha send you kid here so they can be in the 4th worst school in the district!! and look!! all the parents say it's the best! Thanks but no thanks 8 teachers left last year, 3 different teachers in one year and the 4th worst in the district out of 15! Thank god we moved is all I am saying! Do everything you can to NOT send you kid to this welfare school!!

I cant believe anyone would have anything bad to say about this school. Once you are here, you never want to go anywhere else. Rio Vista Rocks, the teachers are Great!, the principal is Great!, the PTA is Great!, and the parental involvement is Great! We have had hard times, but there has always been a solution. This is truely where the best kids go...

I have three children attending Rio Vista and I to have had issues with some teachers.I spoke with the principal many times and the problem was never resolved.

Rio Vista is Great I've a daughter who had a great experience with her teachers and staff and now I have a son who is having a great time also. The teachers are strong, the school has a very strong PTA, and the Principal and Vice Principal are very intrested in keeping the kids on tract in their education. Rio Vista is the Best.

I think this school rates at a 10. All three of my kids have been to this school (over the last 9 years) and the teachers and administrators go above and beyond to make sure the kids have the best environment to learn and excel. They have a high parental involvement and a very active PTA. This site's rating of a 6 is very misleading when you consider everything Rio Vista has to offer and provides to all of their students.

Although my child is in her first year, so far I am impressed by her teacher and the overall ability to learn due to the high parent involvement in my daughters class. I hope that all the teachers are as great as her first one.

I have had 3 children at Rio Vista. Overall, our families experience has been good. I did have problem with the a couple of teachers in the past as well as the previous principal, but that has resolved. Overall, however, I do believe the majority of these teachers are very good and work hard to provide a good education for our kids.

The best school, kids are really important here, their opinion counts

Over all their academic programs are at a high level. If you have a child who needs to be challenged it is a hit and miss if you get a teacher who will go up and beyond what is required. They do have a P.E. program which the children enjoy. They are lacking on music and art. Last year, 2004 they did begin an after school enrichment program which does bring art, dance, sports to school.

In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
