This is the best school in Palos Verdes. The teachers and administration truly care about the school and each individual child. My children went to neighboring public schools and programs kept getting cut due to funding and class sizes kept getting larger. Since coming to RHCDS they are receiving fabulous well-rounded education. I'm so happy my friend told me about this school. Our family couldn't be happier.
Kids are taught to keep trying if they don't succeed the first time. Like in the engineering class my child on one week struggled with a lesson. But the second week she was able to do that lesson again and improve on what she learned the previous week and she felt successful and couldn't wait to tell me all about it. I love that!
Everyone is different and they are taught to love and respect each other. For instance, the school does a lot of public speaking and when a child is up on stage you can hear a pin drop because all the children are quietly standing and listening to that child recite his/her poem.
Absolutely! The kids are taught to work things out with the guidance of their teachers, playground staff, and principal. I've seen this first hand with my child. My child had an issue and both kids were brought in and they worked out the issue together. Now the kids are friends and understand each other better because they worked there issues out rather than the teacher just saying "kids will be kids".
The school ranks very low academically, school administration needs overhaul and change is needed. The leader is not the right person to run the school...pity to see the existing students in the school....there's better schools around the RPV area. Even those not in the school has nothing good to comment about the leadership of the school. Pity those parents who are in the school.
