    "I grew up here went to Mariemont, Star King and had friends at both EC and Rio. I lived in Rio's district but made the choice freshman year to go to EC. Worst choice I ever made. I transfered to Rio my sophomore year and graduated from Rio best choice I ever made. Rio is like any high school it has its issues but overall it is a good school. I had caring teachers and staff and they got involved. I'd say the AP classes are average when compaired to FHS or Jesuits. The sports are the same average. This isn't a hard school but its not a waste of time either for me that is. EC was so bad I was willing to leave my friends I wrote a review on it. To the students the social seen is big at Rio as are the drugs and your status. As for the staff they don't care about your status and do care about your grades and you graduating. So it kind of all works out. All my Rio friends have gone on to successful and professional careers as have all my friends who went to surounding private schools. My friends from EC many aren't with us anymore, several have real drug problems, some are in prison, most arrested at least once and only a handful made something of themselves. Just keeping it real."

    "I really love this school it has been fun going here, i am a junior and i cant wait till senior year! everyone participates in the school activites. i would say the only downfall is all of our sports fields r crowded into one small space and sometimes soccer gets in the way of softball or baseball in the way of soccer."

    "I am a in 10th grade and I seriously think that the best choice I have done is to go to Rio. I was thinking of going to El Camino high which I live just down the street from, but I made the hard choice of leaving most of my friends and doing whats right. I knew that Rio was much better than E.C, now attending Rio I can be confident to tell You that Rio is the best choice to enrole your kid. First were really strong on Athletics and Our band program is unbelivable. One of my senior friend just got a all paid scholor ship to go to N.Y university. Its also great for the over acheviers we have plenty of honer and AP classes which are excelent. There's also plenty of help after school like free tutoring."

    "I love this school. My son is a Junior this year and actually looks forward to going back. The teachers are very involved and I couldn't ask for more from a Public High School."
