Welcome to Rio Tierra Junior High School. I am honored to be part of Rio Tierra Junior High School, a school that supports the belief that all students CAN learn with high expectations for both academic and character education.
The 21-22 school year will mark a new begining as we return to school fully after distance and hybrid learning models. The committed staff at Rio Tierra will work to give every student the opportunity to reach their fullest academic and social potential. Daily instruction will include live interaction with teachers, numerous opportunities for support, and engaging assignments that are in alignment with Common Core State Standards. We understand that you have entrusted us with the care, safety, and education of your student. Though we are beginning the school year with distance learning, we are fully committed to preparing all students to be successful in highschool and beyond.
Throughout the year we will have multiple opportunities for students, parents, and community members to be involved in the school. We invite you to get involved in our school on the English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC), or on our School Site Council (SSC). We welcome your suggestions, ideas, or any concerns you may wish to share.
