The Impact

Chartered March 2012
Opened August 2012

I like being able to take notes on my own at home (while watching Flipped videos) because then I don’t have to slow down in class. I’m able to take in more information that way.

I’m comfortable here because I have teachers that care about me. I don’t feel left out…

I like how they offer AP classes or options – we had AP Biology and AP World Civ last year (9th grade). 

I like RTHS because the labs and the hands-on activities we do in class are really fun.
