Transportation
It is our mission to creatively use the funding we receive as a charter school to maximize educational opportunities. Carpools and the City Bus system are the two main modes of transportation used by RCHS students. Once students have enrolled at RCHS, information about neighborhoods, major roads, and after-school destinations is collected during the summer, organized in a database, and shared with families. Phoenix Parents coordinate this activity, and it is an important one for our school. Some parents elect to use private services also.
NOTE TO ALL DRIVERS:
» Watch for messages related to Student Parking and Traffic Flow on the RCHS website, in the Phoenix News and posted in RCHS's Main Office.
» Be courteous.

Carpool Traffic

Use of the Glenwood Ave and Wade Ave entrances is prohibited from 8:00 to 9:15 a.m. and 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. It is essential that all members of our school community comply with the carpool routes.
