Welcome to Reed-Custer High School.  Our mission is to make a difference in students’ lives through excellence in education.  Our new RCHS School Compact helps to outline four goals and expectations of our students, parents, and staff for a successful school year.
Goal #1: Every student will learn to read well, read often, and enjoy reading through focused alliance of family support and powerful classroom instruction.
Goal #2: Every student will become a self-directed learner through teaching that incorporates study skills, homework practices that build study habits, and parental guidance.
Goal #3: Every student will develop a sense of responsibility and respect for self and others through consistent direction and support from the family and the school.
Goal #4:  The school will work together as a community with its stakeholders-parents, students, teachers, and staff.
We will continue to offer Comet Time and Homework Depot for students to get extra assistance or to complete work.  New for the 2014-15 school year is a Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) policy, which encourages students to bring and use their own electronic devices at school for educational purposes only.  When used appropriately, these devices can help engage students and enhance learning. 
I am proud to be your principal and a part of the great tradition of excellence at Reed-Custer.  Our staff works hard to make RCHS a safe, positive learning environment.  We encourage all students to do their best, work hard, and bring a positive attitude to school every day so that they can reach their true potential.  I would like to wish all of you the very best for a happy and successful school year.
