In RPS, as educators, family members and lifelong learners, we acknowledge the patterns of inequality that still exist today. Together, as a community, we have the power to create change and to bring about racial, social and economic justice.

“Angel has been my T.A. in a French 1 class all year and he is so helpful and makes the class of mostly freshmen feel welcomed,” says Madame Steele. “He helps answer questions and encourages their work while being a role model with his leadership skills and grades. Since he was in ninth grade, Angel has been vital in creating community in our classroom and bringing laughter to every class."
“Madalyn is a gem of a human,” says RHS teacher and cheer coach Laurie Seibert. “She is caring, compassionate, detail-oriented and focused on helping others be the best they can be. I loved having her as a cheer captain her senior year, and I loved having her as my student aide every day of spring semester. She has a light that shines very bright.”
