Welcome to El Rito Elementary! You can find us in El Rito, New Mexico, approximately 50 miles north of Santa Fe. We’re a brand new elementary school in the Mesa Vista Consolidated School District. It is exciting to be a part of a growing school district and we look forward to providing our students with a superb education.
Our school offers Kindergarten through 6th grade.Whether you need to contact us, check the school calendar, or want to know about the latest news on campus, we know our Web site will be helpful to you.
We encourage and welcome open communication between home and school. If you ever have any questions, feel free to call or stop by our office. We are always happy to talk to you!
To the families and community members of Rio Arriba County, I want to express my excitement and joy of having the privilege to be working with you, as the new principal of El Rito Elementary School! I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a wonderful reputation.
Along with the teachers and staff, I will work to build on the successes achieved by my predecessor, Ms. Monique Garcia. I will continue the culture of excellence, based on the principles of having high expectations for all of our students. Together, we will do great things.
I believe every child needs to be prepared for college. Regardless of which direction a person may take upon high school graduation, to not have prepared each of our students for the option of college would be doing them a great disservice. This preparation requires hard, diligent work. For our part, we will be prepared, we will have high expectations and we will accept no excuses.
Thank you all for allowing me this opportunity.
