Alli L. - Class of 2020
"Even at 10 years old, I realized I had an opportunity to start fresh at RHP/Ren. During my fifth-grade year, I could see seniors graduating and heading off to universities. Many of these graduating seniors had started at my age. This inspired me, so I consciously decided to commit, and take full advantage of what RHP/Ren and the school’s community had to offer.
The first goal I set was to achieve consistently excellent grades. I leveraged all the support resources and study programs to build disciplined study habits. I committed myself to the required work and made personal sacrifices to achieve my goals. Once I became settled and found my academic rhythm, I began to layer on extracurricular activities, friendships, and sports. I was able to balance achieving an excellent GPA, help lead and participate in student government, school business and social activities, external service work, and various athletic teams. While expanding into these areas, I began to re-build my self-confidence, independence, and self-sufficiency. I continue to be challenged every day academically and otherwise. Now I look forward to these challenges. I have taught myself how to work within my skills and find successes in most anything to which I commit myself. Most importantly, I have discovered who I am and what is meaningful to me. I have been the beneficiary of dedication, help, and support from my family and my school community. These values and aspects of my life are critically important to me, and I will protect and carry them forward."

"Transferring to RHP, I was exposed to a community that I’ve never seen before. When I first toured the campus, I didn’t know how I would settle into such a small place. The first day of school came and the faculty at RHP were not only nice, they cared about the well-being of their students. They wanted us to succeed. They wanted to not only teach but to educate us.
At first, it was hard transferring because I was a reserved person, but gradually I opened up to more people and found a balance in my life that I was actually proud of. I learned to be myself without having to worry about others judging me. My insecurities still lurked at the edges of my head, but they didn’t affect my everyday life like they used to before. I grew comfortable with what I was doing, not feeling incentives or obligations to impress others. The fact that RHP centered itself around the student really helped my self-confidence in speaking out in a classroom setting. At my previous school, I was always nervous to say an answer in fear of getting the question wrong and people laughing at me."

Jade G. - Class of 2019
"Coming to RHP has allowed me to harness the confidence given to me by my parents and express myself in many new ways. This was through writing creative journals, designing a yearbook, and even spending a week of my summer working as a Communications intern in the office. Not only that but RHP has given me a family. I know that everyone tends to say that but really, RHP has provided me with a safe environment where I'm not afraid to be myself and make friends that I will keep forever."
