My sister and I attended RPCS, our daughters also attended and now my granddaughter is in her 10th year there. It is a very special place. The academics are superior but also, very importantly, learning how to be a person of good character, a compassionate human being and a contributor to the community

Teachers are readily available to the student and her parents for help and encouragement. The academic program is very challenging, the atmosphere is nurturing. And, you hear a lot of laughter and see a lot of smiles in the halls! Read less

I cannot say enough good things about RPCS and I have several daughters there. My oldest has been there for 13 years and does not want to leave!

This school is great. You really appreciate an RPCS education when you get to college and can hit the ground running. You really see the advantage the school gives you over the years.

I agree with the people who say that RPCS was great in lower school. After that I got tired of being with the same people. It was like having too many sisters for too long. I wish that I had gone somewhere else for high school.
