Back to School!

Dear RAPCS Families,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I know it may seem like the common phrase we hear is, “This year is going to be the best one yet,” but I honestly believe that we are going to see RAPCS shine as it has never shined before.

We have new academic leadership - Ms. Sharaine Brown is our new Chief Academic Officer, and she has big plans for our students' academic and social growth.
