About Rio Real

Welcome to Rio Real, home of Sparky and Spike, our mighty  Bulldogs!

Our job as educators is to establish a strong foundation for lifelong learning. It is our responsibility to foster this desire in all students by providing them with the opportunity for intellectual, physical, and cultural growth. We must provide a secure environment where trust, encouragement and support leads to success, where every student is given multiple opportunities to learn and achieve, and the expectations for each student are challenging.

Parent Involvement at Rio Real

We would like to welcome all new and returning parents and students for the new school year. We hope you will join us as we work together with our teachers and staff to support the growth and development of students here on campus.

We encourage you to participate in the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), School Site Council (SSC), English Language Acquisition Committee (ELAC), and other site committees and projects. Please contact the school office for additional information. Meeting dates will be posted on the monthly newsletter/calendar. All parents are welcome to attend. By working together, we can help provide our students with a quality education and a positive and safe environment.

Principal's Message

I am proud to be principal of Rio Real Dual Immersion Academy and a member of this professional staff and dynamic community of learners.  Our students are successful and reach high academic proficiency in two languages.  Our goal is to develop readers and writers in two or more languages and our teachers are committed to do this using effective instructional strategies to prepare both language minority and language majority students in a safe and nurturing environment. I truly believe children deserve opportunities to fulfill their dreams and overcome limitations of knowing only one language.

-Dr. María M. Hernández
