It's time! There's a lot to consider when choosing a middle school. Hopefully you'll find these resources helpful during this process.
Priority application deadline for all grades (PreK-12) is Friday, February 3, 2023.
In the winter of 2022, we hosted a panel discussion with RHS alums to hear tips and advice for navigating middle school and making the best choice for you.

We had a great forum in the winter of 2022 where we heard from seasoned middle school parents who answered our questions and eased our anxiety about choosing the right middle school for our child and family.
