Choose Rio Vista

Every student is special at Rio Vista. And even though we are each unique, we’re all in it together, dedicated to supporting, lifting, and helping one another soar to great heights.

Dedicated to Teaching the Whole Child

At Rio Vista, we subscribe to “the whole child” approach to teaching, which ensures that every student in our school is healthy, safe, engaged, and challenged. Keeping these values at the forefront of our policies and practices, and as we teach to the California Common Core State Standards, our students experience comprehensive, long-term success.

Early Start Program

Rio Vista is honored to have a special, fun program for three- and four-year-olds. Our program provides a developmentally based pre-academic curriculum that helps prepare our little ones for kindergarten by promoting the child's cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development. We invite children who reach three years of age by September 1 of the current school year. Please contact us for more information.

Parent Learning Academics

Parents play a vital role in the education of our young people. With their help and involvement, students are happier, do better in school, and grow academically, socially, and emotionally. We’re honored to have strong family and community support.
