As a forward-looking, academically rigorous college-prep school, RHP provides a carefully crafted curriculum that offers an array of traditional courses taught using proven and engaging techniques. Complementing the traditional curriculum are several innovative courses designed to serve students who will graduate from college in the middle of a fast-changing century. Mandarin, computer coding, Big History, horticulture, Human Service Organizations, internships, public speaking, and robotics are among our most innovative courses. All coursework emphasizes critical skills that will allow students to thrive after graduating from RHP. These skills are collectively referred to as “The Five Cs”: critical thinking, collaboration, communication, creativity, and character. Teachers continually push students to hone and refine these traits as they prepare for life in college and beyond.
All aspects of the RHP experience make up the curriculum: math, science, art, music, drama, outdoor education, service learning, band, chorus, history, English, field trips, International Day, World Dance Week, pep assemblies, PE, athletics, Grandparents and Friends Day, coffee house, publications, National Honor society, clubs, pick-up basketball games, dances, coding, the list goes on. Everything that happens on and off campus is a valuable part of an RHP student's learning experience and is designed to develop in each student their disciplined mind, sound character, creative spirit and healthy body.
