We’ve started having annual dodgeball games in the upper school, a relatively new tradition. There’s a team for each grade, as
well as a faculty team, and they play each other. At
RPCS, there are so many different opportunities to
participate in what we’re interested in, whether it
be in academics, the arts, or athletics – or even a
dodgeball game!
How would you describe the culture at your school?
Wide-ranging. While we are a K-12
community under one roof, each student’s experience at RPCS is different. There
are so many areas to explore and that’s something I really love about RPCS — the opportunity to branch out and discover new things, but still feel a part of the community.
