Imagine a day at RPCS, where your child...

  • Explores his/her curiosity in the atelier (AKA wildly-creative studio)
  • Attends an 8th grade play performed entirely in Spanish
  • Treks through the backwoods taking pictures, gathering natural materials and recording observations
  • Joins Lower School classmates at concert dress rehearsals
  • Eats lunch in the outdoor classroom; then naps indoors to refresh
  • Connects with 12th-grade AP students who study Piaget and observe his theories in action during the preschool day
  • Enjoys one of many “special” classes, such as art, dance, gym, library, music and foreign language

Where else
