Two of my five children attend RCS school. (my oldest and youngest) Tiffany graduated in 2001, and Julia will be graduating in 2022. These are my smartest children that are the most responsible, respectful, spiritual, and creative thinkers. RCS has succeeded in my oldest graduating from the University of San Luis Obispo and preparing my youngest for the desire to go to college. I believe the school's success is in hiring the finest, caring teachers that put the effort into their job of teaching. Next, is the leadership making good decisions and uplifting staff, teachers, parents, and students. I see this school as a great learning environment where teachers shine and influence positive behavior. Thank you for making this world a better place by changing the way our children think. Blessings.
