What Our Families are Saying

I have one child who graduated a few years ago and followed with another child who is now in 10th grade at RCS. RCS always just seemed to be a good fit for us as a family.  There is a sense of community and responsibility in the school that I always appreciated.  
-Dr. Gary Sullivan

In our decision to send William to RCS, we found ourselves impressed not only with the wonderful teachers and staff, but also with the hours the students give back to the community through their volunteer work. RCS students' education goes way beyond the four walls of the classroom.
-Donald and Amy Bowes

We literally stalked the RCS website for our son’s entire fifth grade year to be sure we didn’t miss the application deadline for the lottery! Sending him to RCS was the best decision we’ve made for his education! The small class sizes, dedicated faculty/staff and immense school spirit has been the perfect fit for him. We are #bulldogproud to be the parents of a RCS 9th grader!!!! 
-Bug & Leighann Long
