About Us

Welcome to Rio Rico High School, home of the Hawks!

We are one of five schools in Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District, located in beautiful southern Arizona.  Even in our small town, our students enjoy all the benefits of a large high school including culinary arts and language courses, financial literacy instruction, career and technical education, and so much more.

Spring 2021 State Assessments Information for Families

Every year the Arizona Department of Education and the Arizona State Board of Education expects that all students participate in state assessments. Their expectation remains the same this year. Therefore, all SCV35 school sites will administer state assessments and will follow CDC and county Health Department guidelines to ensure the safety of all staff and students. Protocols include temperature checks, physically distancing students, minimizing the number of students in each location, and requiring masks during the testing. If you have any questions concerning the protocols during state testing, please contact our front office at 520-375-8700.
