This is a miniature replica of the original Raven that was presented as a gift by the Class of 1960. It is respirited by the Rio Grande Alumni Association, and we dedicate it to all past, present and future Ravens who walk the grounds of Rio Grande High School.

RGHS History Wall

We are making good progress on the History Wall to be installed soon. Here are current photos. We plan on a ribbon cutting event by Homecoming 2011. Stay tuned.



The RGHS Alumni Association with the support from the RGHS Administration will erect a professional/permanent “Historical Wall” display to be installed in the Student Commons Building. This History Wall will depict the rich history of the school; a feature for all Ravens past, present and future to appreciate and value. The RGHS Alumni Association would like to thank the Atrisco Heritage Foundation for their generous support in making the History Wall possible. The Atrisco Heritage Foundation is our premier sponsor of this joint effort.
