SPREAD THE WORD:
It is not a stretch to call Rio Rancho the future of New Mexico. The small-town northwest of Albuquerque has now grown to over 100,000 residents and is going to be the second largest city in New Mexico. Rio Rancho is a growing city with rising medical and technology sectors, and its views of the Sandias are the envy of other cities in New Mexico and the entire country. Between 2010 and 2020, the city has grown by over 20% and has added a number of businesses to the area during this time frame.
Quality of life in Rio Rancho is driven by the best large school district in the state, led by its long-time Superintendent V. Sue Cleveland. Rio Rancho Public Schools is opening Joe Harris Elementary in the Unser Gateway area and Shining Stars Preschool in the center of city. Rio Rancho is ﬁlled with parks and has the best summer youth program in New Mexico. The city also boasts tech-savvy workers, great talent, job opportunities, and housing costs that are a fraction of what you’d ﬁnd in Arizona or Colorado.
