We, of RCHS, intend to cultivate the understanding and practices that sustain individual self-determination and community self-government. We have adopted the following principles in order to ensure that all who pass through our halls can imagine, create, and govern a more perfect world.

We believe:
That a foundation of knowledge and ethics must precede all intellectual inquiry;

That if we
  • encourage self-awareness
  • build and maintain local communities
  • develop an awareness of our membership in ever larger communities
  • engage in common enterprises with people who are different
  • accommodate and address conflict and change
  • facilitate problem solving
  • foster balance and moderation in life and
  • take ownership and responsibility for learning
We shall become good citizens.


 

RCHS will be open tomorrow (Wednesday, December 12) with a modified schedule. Classes will be held from 11:00 am to 2:40 pm. There will be no 7th-period class. After-school activities, including the freshman review sessions, will occur as scheduled.

Lunch will not be sold tomorrow. Students are advised to bring food to eat during the lunch break or purchase healthy snacks from Phoenix Foods in room 239.

RCHS makes decisions about closings and schedule changes independently of other schools and systems. We understand that families need to make decisions about travel for their students based on conditions near their homes. We encourage everyone to err on the side of caution when making the decision of whether or not it is safe to travel to school. All absences due to weather-related issues will be excused because of safety.

Please continue to monitor your email, Twitter, Facebook, WRAL, and our school website for any additional updates.

Celebrating 20 Years Together!
RCHS Development Office

We are excited to be celebrating Raleigh Charter's 20th anniversary! Because of you, our families, we have built and sustained RCHS over the last 20 years. Thanks to the support of Phoenix families, we have:

  • Made the move from Pilot Mill to our permanent home on Glenwood Avenue.
  • Managed to fund our budget when per-pupil funding plummeted.
  • Kept class size low, despite these reductions in per-pupil funding.
  • Launched and maintained Flex Days and the Community Work Day program.
  • Purchased new textbooks averaging $5,000 - $15,000 per course.
  • Expanded our digital learning initiative.

In honor of our 20th anniversary, we ask you to consider how you will contribute to our school. At Back-to-School Night we launched our "What's Your 20?" challenge for the Phoenix Fund. Please watch (or rewatch) our slideshow below and donate generously. We appreciate your support of the Phoenix Fund!

Every Family. Every Year.
