Our faculty and staff make collaboration and relationship building a top priority to ensure student growth.  We strive to create a 21st century learning environment that better prepares our students for their future.  RMS students have many opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities including: sports, clubs, academic competitions, and leadership roles.
