Welcome to Rancho de la Nación, home of the Mighty Mustangs! We are a K – 6 school dedicated to providing an exceptional educational experience to the students and families of our community.
Rancho is committed to making every student feel safe and welcome in our school community. We do this through teaching and reminding students to Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe, and Be Kind. I am proud to be part of a school that values such a positive, inclusive culture that teaches, recognizes and supports students to be compassionate human beings.
Student achievement is of the highest priority at Rancho and we do this through rigorous lessons that are designed to help students master the Common Core Standards. We work with all students to support them in reaching the expectations in the standards using specific strategies and holding all to high expectations. We believe students learn best through meaningful, engaging activities and we work to provide a rich learning environment in every classroom, every day.
Family engagement is a critical piece to student achievement and families are always welcome at Rancho. We encourage you to join our PTA, volunteer, and to participate in the number of family engagement activities we plan throughout the year. You are the key to your child’s success. Together, as a team, we can ensure your child thrives academically, socially and emotionally.
