There is such a great sense of community at Rio. We love all the events that the Parent Alliance put on. Harvest Festival is our favorite - our kids had such a great  time.
The  staff and teachers are wonderful. Everyone (teachers, admin) makes it a point to say 'Hi', and it's particularly special that they know my child's name! I feel extremely safe and lucky to be part of the Rio Family.
We love ACE and the After School Program. There are so many enrichment opportunities, my kids are never bored going!
