"We started the academic year in September with a faculty meeting that raised the idea that we as faculty should "think differently." In an earlier column, I wrote why this was necessary, why we as a school, from a position of strength, need to explore beyond the teacher-led classroom and start implementing the latest educational research that supports active engagement, problem-based learning, cooperative classrooms and more."

RCDS recently held an event to celebrate members of the senior class who have committed to continuing their athletic careers in college. So far this year, RCDS will be sending students to play at both the Division I and Division III levels in schools across the country. We are proud of the hard work and dedication that these athletes have exhibited during their time at RCDS, and we look forward to following their athletic exploits in college. The list of students who have committed to play and photos of the celebration are on Wildcat World.
"This year, the Middle School officially adopts the March exam model for seventh and eighth graders. The Upper School made the transition to March exams fifteen years ago. The exams are cumulative and cover material through the end of February, and for a number of reasons, they are much more pedagogically sound for middle schoolers than end-of-year cumulative finals."
