RCHS is on a 4x4 block schedule. In simple terms, a 4x4 is a schedule where students take eight 10-credit classes; four classes in the fall term and four classes in the spring term. Each of the four classes meets every day for 90 minutes. Individual schedules will vary, but a typical freshman schedule might look like the following:

Fall Term: English, Science, PE, Elective
Spring Term: Math, World Language, BFS, Elective
 

Graduation Requirements – 220 Credits (Subject to change)

Important note for the class of 2015 and beyond: Students will be enrolled in the College and Career Ready path to graduation. If you or your child have concerns about this pathway, please contact your counselor to schedule a conference to discuss your options.
