Welcome to the Greater Rio Area!

The Greater Rio Area is made up of more than just the Village of Rio. It also includes the Village of Doylestown and the surrounding Townships of Fountain Prairie, Hampden, Lowville, Otsego, Springvale, and Wyocena: all the areas represented in our school district. Check out this map of the Rio School District to see where everything is.
