Our Mission

Vision and mission statements are vitally important for any organization.  They explain why we exist and what we hope to contribute to our society.

RAPCS Mission Statement

The mission of the RAPCS is to create a safe and healthy learning environment for middle school youth to develop into responsible participants in their education and our diverse society.

We will provide rigorous instruction to prepare children for higher learning, the workplace, and life.

RAPCS will engage our students to think globally and act locally!


Our guiding principles determine the manner in which our mission and vision will be realized.  Principles provide a uniform approach to how we function as a school community.  Decisions are made through the framework of our guiding principles.  These principles will transform the way we communicate by providing a shared language.


To be crystal clear, these principles will guide the actions, decisions and performance evaluations of all stakeholders (board members, administrators, staff, students and parents).
