Our parents and community are actively engaged in supporting student achievement. Our students are eager to learn and demonstrate good moral character.
School Organization: Villages and Teams
At Rancho, scholars are organized in two villages, or small schools within our school. This means each school counselor and vice principal is connected to Green Village or Burgundy Village. Each village has a 6th grade, 7th grade and 8th grade team. The teams consist of a Math, Science, English and History teacher for each grade level. In addition to your teams, you will also have an elective teacher and PE teacher as your team of teachers. We believe this helps scholars and staff feel more connected to the school and to each other by fostering a more “family-like” environment at Rancho.
