About Rio Lindo

The Rio Lindo Rockets have launched a successful academic program since opening in 1964, maintaining strong STAR test scores and achieving recognition as a California Distinguished School in 1986. Our students enjoy the benefits of a strong PTA and many parent and community volunteers that encourage the school’s wide variety of programs. In addition to a strong academic program that includes events throughout the year, we offer numerous extracurricular activities including athletics, visual and performing arts, a science fair, a jog-a-thon, intervention courses and Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme activities.

Principal's Message

At Rio Lindo School, we believe that every child can be a successful learner. We offer a program where students will develop inquiry skills, learn how to access relevant resources and receive individual support to ensure that every student is reaching their highest potential.
Rio Lindo’s teaching and support staff are dedicated to supporting and maintaining a safe and nurturing school environment where students social, emotional and behavioral needs are met. These values will help students become more confident and ready to learn.

Rio Lindo’s teachers are aware of student needs and how to help address student needs in an engaging way that will help all children learn to their highest potential. Staff connect with students, provide instructional routines which reach a variety of learning styles, offer small group and individual support and will ensure that students have access to intervention and special education resources as needed. We do this by offering a variety of engaging activities as well as providing inquiry based lessons which further broadens student’s experiences and connections to adults on campus. Our goal is to expand these experiences so we reach beyond academic success and help all children become well rounded and caring community members.
