    "While the parent involvement at Rio Americano collaberates very well with the school's administration, I have found teachers to have been my biggest challenge when I attended. While there are some great and cooperative ones, certain teachers I had made it impossible to make the grade, a societal pressure, bearing the weight of the future when your college education depends on it. However, I survived and thrived at a great overall culture and atmosphere at Rio Americano."

    "Rio Americano High School excelled in almost every aspect. Most teachers and staff were very welcoming and eager to assist any student. A few things that the school should work on is making minority students feel welcomed on campus. Another thing that needs work is their language department, specifically Spanish. For students who are native Spanish Speakers, there should be a class that challenges them. AP Spanish mostly focused on simple communication skills; the program should focus more on proper grammar, reading and writing skills, as well as study the linguistics of each Latin American Country and how the Spanish differs from each other."

    "Rio is a good school as far as academics. Like any public school, there are great teachers and not so great teachers who should retire. Their counselors try hard, but have too many students to give personalized attention or stay on top of details such as updated local scholarships, etc."

    "Rio is okay. I think the school, as with most schools, is what you make of it. Clubs are not widely participated in but sports participation is big. Teachers can be hit or miss."
