    Middle school is a time when students begin the transition to high school, with the opportunity to explore their individual talents and interests. RCSD middle schools are designed to prepare students for high school, both academically and emotionally. A focus on character development and leadership skills while fostering a sense of community will allow students to develop the skills and knowledge that prepare them for success in college and careers.
