The home of the proud Highlanders welcomes the Class of 2018. I am glad to be here as your new principal and looking forward to a great year.
We are striving to offer a wide range of choices to serve the varied interests and needs of our student body. We work every day to make our school a safe and welcoming place of learning, both academic and social.
Royal High School continues to develop our Citizen Scholar Institute in partnership with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Foundation. We are in our first year of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program and will offer Juniors and Seniors IB courses this year. We are preparing our campus to receive the Air Force Jr. ROTC program beginning this year as well.
We have a strong partner in the RHS PTSA organization and I encourage all to join and also to get involved with all of their good work. There is a great deal of information on our website and I hope that you find this resource helpful.
Our theme for this school year is “Rising Up to the Challenge!” Rising up to the challenge of positive change, rising up to excellence in all we do, and rising up to a future that is ours to shape.
Keith Derrick, Principal
