Welcome Rio Real Students and Families!

Welcome to Rio Real a K-8 Dual Immersion School!

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.

At Rio Real, we believe that teachers and parents are partners in our children’s education. We invite all parents to become involved in the many opportunities available through our school committees: PTA, School Site Council, ELAC, Coffee with the Principal as well as being a volunteer in the classroom.

I look forward to working with you to provide a safe, collaborative, challenging, and successful learning environment for all our students.
