School Notes:

  • In many ways, RCS is a family. Even as the school has grown, it has maintained this unique atmosphere. RCS believes that the school is an extension of both home and church in its objective to train up children "in the way they should go." For this reason, we invite parents to communicate often with teachers and staff.
