Rio Hondo Prep seeks to provide a college preparatory education for those students who might otherwise be lost in the crowd.
We believe that students of average academic abilities can succeed and indeed excel at the college level and in the vocations that follow if they are given personal attention and encouragement.
We believe that the average student needs an approach to education where stimulus is provided to each student in an array of areas.
Rio Hondo Prep seeks to provide an atmosphere where the average student can thrive without being sidetracked by disruptive influences.
We seek to give students their say by adhering to the democratic process.
We believe that the best discipline is self-discipline and we hold high moral standards based on the Judeo-Christian ethic.
