Rio Grande School's commitment to participating in and serving the greater community is best represented in two ways. The first is the School's longstanding Service Learning Program. Projects are developmentally appropriate, connect to classroom study, and provide meaningful ways for students to give back to the community. Students gain real world experience and an understanding that their work can have a positive impact in the community outside of school.
The second way that Rio Grande School participates in helping the community is through partnerships and sponsorships.

A third way is the long-standing partnership between Rio Grande School and the Pueblo of Pojoaque. The school also has growing relationships with other Pueblos. For the 2015-2016 year, the student population included 12 Native American students, ranging from the ages of 3 to 10 -- 7.5% of the body. To find out more about the program, please read the article titled The Native American Initiative, recently published in Independent School magazine, written by the School's Tewa teacher Laura Jagles.
