Congratulations to three RCDS students who have been awarded the highest honors in the national Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.

The gold medal recipients are invited to attend the awards ceremony at Carnegie Hall this June.
They are also stimulating, inventive, exciting, and fun. The pillars of a classic education - critical thinking skills and a broad knowledge base - coexist with contemporary themes and teaching methods.
The Lower School offers a nurturing environment that focuses on citizenship skills; the Middle School is structured to be responsive to students in a transitional time; and the Upper School models an intense but affirming environment that prepares students to achieve excellence at the college level. Each RCDS student gradually and surely achieves ever-evolving levels of sophistication in a given subject as he or she progresses through the School’s three divisions.
Curriculum mapping is used to connect disciplines and skills across grade levels and all three divisions. A writing program takes all of our students through a consistent, targeted method that is designed to challenge and deepen their command of expository, analytical, and descriptive writing at all age levels.
When Lower School students study a particular animal, they learn about its habitat in science class, study its country of origin in geography, and make papier-mâché representations in art class. When Middle School students read Chasing Vermeer in Language Arts class, they also complete a visual arts unit on portraits. When students become seniors in the Upper School, they are required to take Senior Seminar, which examines the links between world cultures from social, political, economic, and artistic perspectives.
An iPad program in the Lower School, a laptop program in Grades 7-12, SmartBoards in the classrooms, and a campus-wide wireless network are evidence of the School's commitment to the full integration of technology in the classroom.
