I was involved in the public school system and did not get the help I needed from the teachers. My friends were typical teenagers in my area where they were partying and getting into trouble. I was not on a good track and I had a lot of energy that needed to be channeled into a positive direction. My experience with Rio Lindo was life changing. I got the freedom that a teenager desires, the guidance of the staff (some I clashed with but that is life), and many positive outlets to channel energy into for a productive life. The teachers were helpful and truly cared about my education. The friendships I made have endured.

Rio Lindo all around is a fantastic school. I feel coming to this school has definitely prepared me for the future and has made me more independent. The Faculty here are so kind and always willing to help. I feel I can always go to one of them when I have problem I need to discuss. I absolutely love sports. I play on the Varsity volleyball and basketball team. The coaches are very encouraging and have taught me a lot of new skills. The campus is absolutely stunning and is right along the Russian River. It's very diverse and has kids from all around the WORLD! Coming to this school is something I will never regret.

Rio is place that student require to get on the good side of staff! When you are not! You will always getting pick on, and their will be no one you can talk with.Even you do, they most likely will not do anythings to at least try shoving it. Reason is all the staff are well connected, most of the staff is alumni of Rio Lindo Adventist Academy in Healdsburg, friends, or classmate. If one of the staff decide to punish you. Because of a accuse or dislike. It will happen. The principle will unlikely listen to your explained or reason. In fact from my past experience the principle will not even care to call you to have a discussion. I was a student in Rio Lindo Adventist Academy in Healdsburg and I really hope I can have a chance to other high school. I wish before you want to choose the school, deeply consider it. So you won't end up the same as me.

I graduated from Rio Lindo Academy, and there is no other high school experience quite like it. Students at Rio are blessed with caring teachers, a beautiful campus, quality education that is well-rounded, and all that is needed to be successful in high school. I hope to be able to send my own children there someday.

I don't think the person who wrote the negative response has any idea what Rio is all about. Every student or staff member who has been to Rio can't deny the beauty of the campus, the care that the staff put into their students, and the all-around positivity. Yes, it is a Christian school with required worships, but it offers an education that is far superior to public schools, with extracurricular classes such as shop, art, a strong PE program, music, and auto shop. Students who have high academic standards thrive there. Kids who don't want to work hard will feel very challenged.

great school for children who need dicipline and religious training. i attended this school and highly recommend it as a boarding school even if you are not adventist.

Rio Lindo Academy is an excellent christian high school. It is a boarding school, but accepts day students as well. I am a student here, and I have never been in a school where the teachers care so much. Not only that, but there are a lot of opportunities that you would not find at other schools. There are numerous sports students can participate in, as well as mission trips each year, and even a student exchange program to Australia. We have a learning research center for students struggling in their classes. We have 2 computer labs where students can access the internet, and an industrial arts program that is superior to that of many schools. We also have a great music program, and a unique work experience program where students can work and earn money towards tuition.
