Why RCLS?

“RCLS was the best decision we’ve ever made for our children.”

“I can’t put a price on the value of an RCLS education.

This foundation is an investment in my child’s future.”

"We have heard our daughters say on many occasions, 'We are really glad we go to RCLS.' They understand that RCLS is unique. It is not like other schools, and that makes them proud and thankful to be a part of it. Quite simply, they think it is the best. And, as parents, we agree!"

"The teachers are very caring and fair with the students. They provide enrichment opportunities as well as supplemental support to meet the unique needs of each child. Given the size of the school, the relationships built between students and teachers are maintained for the duration of the child's education at RCLS."
