This is a school where it the village still raises the child. The teachers know their kids not only by name, but care what happens to them and looks out for their best interest. Extracurricular activities are encouraged. The principal supports his staff and runs a tight ship. You won't see boys walking around with their pants beneath their butts and you will see kids get appropriate consequences for their actions.. The kids get a good education in a smaller environment. Lawyers, doctors, teachers, social workers.....come out of this school just like they do in the bigger and well known schools.

I had two sons attend Royal High School and by far it is the BEST high school for teenagers. Not only is the principal a caring individual, the teachers give students the time it takes for them to learn the material. I would have LOVED to attend a high school like this! The principal is absolutely fantastic! A parent
