About Us

Rio Hondo is a K-8 school of approximately 713 students. The school was built in 1952 and is located on 7 acres with 53 classrooms, four computer labs, and an administration building and a small cafeteria/auditorium. Our two-story building houses the library media center, a performing-arts room and six classrooms. The library media center contains nearly 10,000 volumes and a computer lab with 30 networked workstations.

We also house four district special day class (SDC) classrooms, an Aspire after school program and Stone Soup after school program. There is a wood shop classroom, exercise lab and a science lab available to upper grade students. A shade structure with tables provides a social space for grades 4-8. Playground equipment is available to all students in the kindergarten, primary and upper-grade playgrounds. Upper-grade students also have handball, tether ball and basketball courts on their playground. Internet access is available in every room.
