Mr. Adam Rio


My name is Adam Rio and I am the Science Department Chair and also teach Honors Biology at RHS this year.  It is hard for me to believe, but this is my 24th year teaching at RHS.  Over thoes 24 years I have gotten to work with many wonderful people and that is what makes RHS such a great place.  I attended North Cental College for my undergraduate work, majoring in biology and minoring in education.  I continued my education at Benedictine University earning a masters degree in education.  I am part of a great group of science teachers here at RHS that are excited to have all students gain a better appreciation of science as a procee and as a body of knoweldge. In the different roles that I am part of here at RHS, the most important impact that I want to have is to make students better at being students.  To be prepared as they move from high school into the next stage of their lives.

Please contact me at if you have any questions about the different science courses offered here at the high school or question about your student.
