CONNECTED CULTURE

A major goal for Royal is to cultivate a Culture of Connectedness for students. Engaging them in clubs, teams, programs, and events as valued individuals & vital parts of our school community is our focus. We continue to be proactive and to refine strategies. Click here to see how - through even things like dances - we increase participation and connection to RHS each year.
