Students at Raleigh Academy have the opportunity to participate in Art, Physical Education, Music and Spanish. Most students have two subjects every day. Raleigh Academy students are also working to become digital citizens utilizing technology as an educational tool in our INNOVATION STUDIO and the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) Learning Lab.
We work hard to create a school climate this is reflective of our core values -- respect, responsibility, compassion, justice, integrity, courage, hope and wisdom. This occurs through a monthly focus on one of the core values that includes lessons in the classes about it. The end of each month bring a core value assembly where students who have exhibited the core value (as selected by teachers) are celebrated. Additionally our anti bullying program, Olweus, is a focus in our classrooms. All staff are trained in this program each year. A variety of activities and lessons throughout the year help our students understand what they can do if they see someone being bullied and how to respond. Both our core value focus and the Olweus program are part of the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework that shapes our school culture.
Participation and involvement from our students’ caregivers is a critical component to our program. We have an active Parent Advisory Council, Special Education Parent Advisory Council and American Indian Committee. Additionally parents are afforded each year the opportunity to run for our DPSA School Board.
