Since opening in fall of 2001, Rio del Norte continues to develop as a community service-oriented school. The involvement of organizations, local businesses, higher education schools and volunteers creates a partnership that balances the academic curriculum with the development of our students. We strive for students to be engaged and successful in the process of learning by helping them discover interests and activities that enhance the lifelong learning process. The focus on providing standards-based teaching and fundamental learning tools helps students strive for their very best. We invite new challenges and ask for stakeholders to join us in meeting these new adventures with success. On campus, we are fortunate to have special education classes, a speech & language pathologist, part-time school counselor, and an after school program.
