The RISE Schools is committed to preparing our scholars for success in high school, college, and the competitive world of the 21st Century.
Prior to their inception, the RISE Schools was a vision derived from the reality that there is a need for schools that not only assisted in educating our scholars, but that prepared them for the competitive world beyond school walls. In order for that to happen, we have to prepare the future generation to get to and excel in college.
We do not say that the work isn't hard. In fact we lead with the understanding that it is very hard and, "without struggle, there is no progress". We then provide our scholars with the tools necessary to persevere through the hard work and recognize their strengths in the process.
Those tools are a rigorous, academic curriculum and our core values of honesty, respect, responsibility, and determination. We believe that with hard work, relentless pursuit of results, and strong foundation of character development, our scholars will exceed the expectations the future has waiting for them. By providing a holistic curriculum that focuses on core knowledge and ensures an explicit focus on developing written, verbal, mathematical fluency, we allow scholars to build the foundations to access and engage with the technology that shapes our society. This curriculum is delivered via a structured, sequential approach that encourages scholars to develop strong cognitive skills that can be applied to scientific, mathematical, linguistic, artistic, social, and ethical problems.
By creating a values-based school culture of consistent expectations, we empower scholars to meet the challenges, demands, and opportunities of the future. In an atmosphere that is both intellectually rigorous and emotionally nurturing, students develop strong social and emotional skills that allow them to be challenged both academically and behaviorally. In this environment students gain confidence, discipline, and resilience to prepare them to become responsible global citizens.
Throughout their career at The RISE Schools, scholars will be actively invested in their personal goals and successes and will work closely with their teachers and parents to ensure that these objectives are met or exceeded. Ultimately, each scholar will leave with solid academic foundations, a lifelong joy of learning, critical thinking skills, and the confidence to advocate for their own learning and pursue a path of educational excellence.
