I really love the teachers here. They all really encourage your learning and make you actually want to be in school. But most of all, they are relatable and know how to connect with me. While the administration is difficult to deal with at times and they definitely dictate a lot of the decisions at the school that the student body does not approve of (we can’t wear any t-shirts for example with any logo or writing on it), I think they are what made me stay here for my high school years!

I attended Rising Tide from grade 5-12, and I graduated in 2019. Rising Tide is a small school with a very tight-knit environment. This benefited me in many ways; I stayed close with friends, I formed close relationships with teachers (who I still keep in touch with), and was able to get a lot more 1 on 1 learning because class sizes are kept small. I even took a class with just my teacher and I my junior year, and it was my favorite experience there. The teachers here are extremely invested in their students' academic status as well as emotional well being.
The drawback that comes with the excellent classroom instruction and teachers is the administration. They were known to have bias against certain teachers, which resulted in a lack of support and funding to their dept.. This affected mainly the English and Arts departments.
I would recommend RTCS for any high-achieving young person, especially one who thrives in a small environment.
I am a recent graduate and I am so grateful for the time that I was able to spend there. Having entered as a new student in 9th grade, I was worried about navigating a new environment, yet almost immediately I was amazed by the kindness and sense of community among the students, and I knew that Rising Tide would grow into a place I would soon call home. Rising Tide's strong focus on academics and the arts allowed me to explore diverse fields of study with confidence, something I never would have been able to do without such compassionate, caring, and supportive teachers and peers by my side. Throughout my four years at Rising Tide, I had teachers who were simultaneously brilliant and thoughtful, I grew close to a student body committed to helping each other achieve our goals, and I had access to incredible artistic and academic opportunities that have prepared me for college and beyond. I am so happy to have spent the last four years at Rising Tide.
