Rio Grande School offers a nurturing and challenging environment for the engaged child, ages 3 through sixth grade, who is excited to learn.
Students love Rio Grande School, their second home. They break away from their parent’s handhold in the morning, high-five our Head of School, and speed through the front doors with food to donate, or a recycled art project, or with the excitement of knowing they’ll be leading all-school assembly that day.
Are they happy because they get the attention they need, from two teachers in their classroom? Is it because they feel respected when asked to share how they feel? Is it because they get to volunteer at the Santa Fe River by cleaning up the stream and planting trees? Likely it is a little bit of everything.
Through their journey and opportunities at RGS, they are transformed into independent learners, who are well prepared academically and socially for success in the next stage of their education.
Rio Grande School students and graduates do well and help others do the same.
