    "Rio Grande School is the only ISAS accredited pre-k and elementary school in Santa Fe. We have been so impressed by the learning experiences our boys have received at the school, including 2 teachers per class; mentor programs with older students; art, Spanish, theater, experiential education, physical education, science, music, and top-notch academics in a sweet, supportive setting. The campus is beautiful, and the students spend lots of time outside and in the surrounding open spaces. We've been so impressed and would highly recommend this school to others wanting the very best elementary education for their children. Rio Grande School is a great community too -- very inclusive and supportive and all around a wonderful learning environment."

    "Rio Grande is a fantastic and supportive learning environment for chidren. The school offers a broad academic curriculum and has a wide variety of extracurricular activities designed to nurture a chid's imagination and desire to learn. The teachers and administration are top notch are completely dedicated to the mission. The parent community is close knit and extremely supportive. This school is second to none!"

    "Rio Grande School is an outstanding school in the Santa Fe community. A smaller school with 150 students, my children learn in an environment where the teacher ratio is 1:7, not including the 11 specialists that also support the students. My children learn excellent core academics, but also drama, art, music, Spanish, technology, experiential education and have P.E. several times per week. The faculty and staff are incredible, with the majority having Master Degrees, and are dedicated to the children. If any problems arise, teachers and staff are very communicative with the parents. The parent community is very welcoming with ample opportunities to get involved through volunteering and community outreach. My children and I are very happy at Rio Grande School!"

    "Terrible school!. The headmaster is influenced by a select group of parents who give large sums of money and tell him exactly what to do. They have had turnover in the last several years and the quality of education has diminished. We were at the school for several years and finally made a choice to move our children elsewhere. The school has several fund raising events throughout the year and it was quite surprising to us what happened at those after dark parties. I wish the "new " headmaster lots of luck and hopes he puts the children before the board. However, sadly, he will not be able to have an original idea or put forth any real initiative and has been set up for failure much like his predecessors."

    "We loved this school when we first arrived. The younger grades have loving teachers, however in recent years the leadership has declined. Too many headmasters in a few years so we chose to go elsewhere. For a private school also you would think kids would be ahead of the children academically but they are not. A few of the great teachers have left, and many parents are now choosing local public schools over RGS. Too much focus on fundraising also."
