If your child is interested in advanced courses, the teachers are exceptional. If your child is interested in the IB Diploma, this is one of two schools in the county that offer it (Newbury High being the second). Rio Mesa has also been named as having one of the best athletic programs. Don't overlook this school purely on API scores as the mix of students bring the number down. We have 3 children who have attended this school.

I attended this school and it was okay, i was treated poorly by almost all of the staff and was almost always talked down upon, Only 2 teachers actually Taught me and spent the time to teach their students, My guidance counseler was Mrs.F*****ck and she was the most unhelpful, irresponsible, coniving, apathetic, imbellic, prejudice, uneducated, rude,difficult,invidious, rotten, untrustworthy person I have ever met. She had such a bad attitude and gave me the opposite information she was giving the students whom lived in big houses, with nice cars and lots of money in their familys bank accounts. Remove her and bring someone new to that school who actually GUIDES the students in a good direction, and ALL students not just the IB my dad drives a BMW my mom eats bon bons all day and watches GLEE at night cause we're wealthy and have nothing else to worry about. Thanks

Its one of the smallest in the district but the most diverse and always competitive in academics, sports and the arts.

We have been very impressed with Rio Mesa. Our son is a sophomore this year and likes it as well. He is an honor student and very active in sports. The sports programs are wonderful and the teachers are fabulous.

My daughter is a Freshman here and we are very impressed. The school's culture is second to none. These students will be movers and shakers! They are involved in their school and in their community. The sports teams have a rich history of success. With the addition of the International Baccaleureate program, this is a well-rounded high school program whose crowning jewel is its diversity.

Outstanding High School! With a background in Safety, Security/AT, Disaster Preparedness, Management as an evaluator and Professor at the Graduate Level - I have been very impressed. I have independently 'surveyed' the school during numerous functions at varying times of day and night. The School spirit and pride shown by students and staff, as well as the respect shown to each other, is the highest I have ever seen. Academic programs and teaching/coaching staff are outstanding. Any complaints made by parents, I would suggest to them that they might look in the mirror. Schools are not the only factor in the equation for student academic performance and learning. No matter how good a program is, parental involvement is a key to success for any student at any grade level. Our city students utilize two high schools based on residence location and I'm glad this is ours.

I have four sons and three have gone to RMHS. Although they play sports, and the sports programs are great. Academically the focus is not there. Especially for the student that needs the extra push. I will say the staff is great, the teachers are great, but the school overall lacks in discipline.

I have had 2 nephews complete school at RMHS and now my child attends. It was a very different experience for all. The one who didn't care about school or sports did not enjoy his time there, and we were not pleased with his education. I don't believe it to be the schools failure but his. My son now attends and he loves his school and has much pride. He continues to excel acedemically and enjoys the sports programs. The counselor has been very helpful. The teachers I have met seem to also have enthusiasum for there school. The spirit at this school is high. The kids say they like that it is not clicky with groups, and over all everyone is nice. Some of my son's friends go to ACHS and don't seem to be as pleased as the kids who go to RMHS. There honor's program is great.

Great School.I am currently going to be in Senior Year. There is a great athletic team, and a great Parent/Teacher community. Teachers are great, but with the nearing closure of the Rio Mesa Auto Shop, the school will loose a great program.

Good parent involvement, however it is from the more affluent parents. Like many of the schools in the area, Rio Mesa has way too many students. Students with special needs or language deficiencies may fall through the cracks. Too much emphasis on sports and not enough on academics. Overral good teachers. Administration could do better.

A very diverse school full of all kinds of backgrounds and ethnicities, which makes for great life experience. Overall competent sports programs, with many teams in CIF playoffs, including basketball, water polo, soccer and football. The honors/AP program is strong, with almost all of its students headed to UCs or to renown four-year universities. Parent involvement could be higher, but there are many ways that parents can get involved and help out the school programs :)

In a large school as Rio Mesa, my daughter has falling through the cracks. An Honor student in a small middle school (where parents and teachers were allways guiding the students) she feels lost, her gades have dropped to Cs and she doesn't know were to go for help. I, as a parent, feel no conection with staff and teachers which usually don't return calls or if they do they do not know how my daughter is dong in their class.

My 2 students couldn't be happier to be at RM. They both are challenged to excel, and both are honors and AP students who participate in 3 sports every year. The athletic department, specificly X-country and track, is superb, and the coaches are wonderful. Rio Mesa is a multi-ethnic school and students come from mixed backgrounds, which makes it better in my view. Rio Mesa continues to attract high caliber students, even though enrollment is not as limited as it was a couple of years ago.

I have just transfered to Rio Mesa and I would say it is not a bad school at all. There are no extreme racial issues like many other schools in the district and the teachers are great. Although the counselors don't take much of the students time, they are a huge help. The sports and music programs are extremely impressive and the school spirit is amazing.

I graduated from Rio Mesa in 2000. I am so glad I went there. All the teachers were wonderful and supportive. This school is the best in the district!

I have three students that attend Rio Mesa High and I have mixed feelings. If your student is self-motivated and does well in school, they will do well at Rio Mesa. If your child starts Rio Mesa and has any academic problems, my experience is that the teachers don't care. Only one teacher has made an effort to help my child when they fell behind. My experience has been if your child falls behind, the teacher is more interested in them getting transferred out of their class than tackling the problem and helping out the student.

I'm a senior(c/o 2004) here and i'm perfectly happy at this school. I'm in the colorguard and I always talk about how my school is one of the best when it comes to extracurricular activities. No complaints here. And to those that don't like this school, your only reason is that you haven't tried experiencing the music dept.

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.

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
