Raleigh Charter Economics, Part 3

At a time when teachers are leaving North Carolina in record numbers, Raleigh Charter has a faculty with:

  • an average of 18 years of classroom experience
  • and an average tenure at Raleigh Charter of 10 years.

We are proud of our talented and committed staff.

But this comes at a price.

The teacher salary portion of our funding is based on the average years of experience of Wake County teachers (since we are located in Wake County) - not the actual years of experience of our teachers. So, we aren’t receiving the funding we need to pay our teachers for their years in the classroom.

The faculty has felt the love of the RCHS community in all sorts of ways, with lots of delicious food, help for all of our activities, and many kind words from students and parents. However, to keep salaries competitive, we need additional financial support.

Support the Phoenix Fund today. Every family. Every year.

Contact the Development Office with questions or for more information.

Get Ready for the Annual Artifact Museum!
Friday, December 4th, 4-6 pm

The Artifact Museum, a longstanding annual tradition of the school, is scheduled for December 4, 2015 4-6 pm. Travel back in time to explore ancient lands through the student-created artifacts on display and listen to students discuss their ancient artifact and its implications. All ninth grade students participate in the Museum.

Throughout the fall, students work on recreating an artifact and writing a research paper related to their item in their World History courses. Students also spend a portion of their Ex Days and Flex Days preparing for the evening. This year will highlight seven areas of inquiry: Science and Technology, Daily Life, Entertainment and Recreation, Religion and Philosophy, Trade and Economics, Artistic Expression, and Political Systems.

Student exhibits will be displayed in hallways and classrooms both upstairs and downstairs in the areas at the east end of the building near the main office. All are welcome to visit the Museum and light snacks and refreshments will be provided. Admission is free. Don't miss your opportunity to experience this unique RCHS event!
