Principal's Message

Dear RMS Community,


I am excited to begin a new school year at RMS. I extend a warm welcome to all of you and look forward to working with you. I am excited to announce that RMS is now candidate school for the Middle School Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Rivera Middle School believes is important to our students.  In addition to becoming an IB candidate school, RMS has also added a music teacher for grades 7th and 8th.


The staff and I are committed to providing a high quality education for our scholars. Your child will receive an academically rigorous curriculum in all core areas along with an emphasis on technology and 21st century skills.  We also believe in developing the whole child to be productive citizens and we strive to model the beliefs of our Mission Statement: RMSRespectful Motivated Scholars


Parents are encouraged to get involved in our school activities, such as: School Site Council (SSC), English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) and gain access to their parent portal. It is my belief that strong parental involvement in conjunction with dedicated teachers and staff will result in successful scholars.


The faculty and staff at RMS are proud of our school and our accomplishments. We are committed to creating an environment where scholars feel welcome, appreciated and challenged to do their best each day. We are excited about the unlimited possibilities that we have here for our RMS scholars, and it is vital that we combine our efforts to help them succeed. Please feel free to contact me with questions, comments, or concerns. I am here to help. Thank you for supporting our school.

Welcome Back!
Dr. Ventura- Rincon
