These standards guide the development of curriculum and instruction for each subject matter.  Students are placed into classes at RMS based on their academic needs. We offer a comprehensive curriculum which pushes all students to move beyond their initial abilities.

Grades:

At RMS we are most focused with what students actually learn. We expect all students to complete their homework and classwork assignments but also expect them to show they have mastered the standards that are taught. Gone are the days of students getting good grades because they turn in all of their work.

With this in mind, student grades are heavily based on assessments rather than work completed.

We expect students to learn and will do what it takes to make them succeed.
