Our children have been attending RHLS for over 4 years. We are very happy with their spiritual and academic development. RHLS is like a second family to our kids. Excellent teachers and support staff.

This is my child's first year at RHLS in the upper elementary grades. The teacher's we have worked with are very caring and dedicated. The elementary curriculum is on par with the local public schools, but the classes are so much smaller, and my child benefits from that tremendously. In addition to classroom teachers, there are five special subject teachers who the children work with (at least) once each week - such as PE, computers and music. These teachers are wonderful. I love the well rounded approach to education, where these subjects are an integral part of the school day. My only wish is that visual arts had a regular role with an excellent teacher. I love the constant focus on service to the community and on character development. I have seen some reviews criticizing the principal. I have had no problems talking with her or having questions or concerns addressed. The administrative staff has exceeded my expectations. I have also seen some older comments on campus security. Perhaps that was corrected. The school seems very secure, with limited access and expected security procedures.
