The mission of the RAPCS is to create a safe and healthy learning environment for middle school youth to develop into responsible participants in their education and our diverse society. We will provide rigorous instruction to prepare children for higher learning, the workplace, and life.
Our guiding principles determine the manner in which our mission and vision will be realized.  Principles provide a uniform approach to how we function as a school community.  Decisions are made through the framework of our guiding principles.  These principles will transform the way we communicate by providing a shared language.
