Flex Day Drivers
RCHS Community

We cannot say thank you enough for the incredible support our parents have provided as we have had to navigate the many scheduling changes with our upcoming Flex Days. Thank you to everyone who has signed up to drive. Our Flex Days are possible because of you!
Drivers will receive all final assignments for both Fridays on Wednesday, September 19.

It is always helpful for us to have back up drivers to provide additional coverage, if needed. If you would like to sign up to be back up driver for 9/21 or 9/28, please email to community@raleighcharterhs.org. We truly appreciate your help!

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.
