Fine Arts Department
Education in the arts is an integral part of the development of each student within Rio Rancho Public Schools. All schools within the district have full-time art and music teachers. The district leadership team understands that the arts cannot be learned through occasional or random exposure. Education and engagement in the fine arts is an essential part of the school curriculum and an important component in the educational program for every student.
Our schools offer a variety of fine arts options. Our staff of fine arts educators is award-winning, and dedicated to fostering the arts in the lives of our students.
