    Our experience at RHP and REN in the year that our son has attended this school has been one that every student should have. The teachers are dynamic, caring and truly invested in the kids. The Ed Specialists in the REN program are angels on Earth. My son has some learning differences and has thrived in this program because he is getting the support he needs, but is also held to a standard of personal growth and academic rigor that he can certainly meet. If you get the chance, spend five minutes talking to the Head of School, David Maher, and you won't have any hesitations about the mission, the heart or the future of this school. So grateful to be a parent of a RHP Husky!

    Very small school with pros and cons. Teachers are invested, but worry about hand holding and grade inflation. Students will get into college, but will they succeed there? New director has brought much needed revamping of staff and policies, but still much further to go. Need to clear out remaining members of prior disorganized, autocratic administration. No clear discipline policy; severity and type of discipline appears to be handed out based on popularity of student. Warm and friendly campus, but not accepting of all students as advertised. Clubs and sports open to everyone, but a good number are run poorly or peter out (basketball program the exception). RHP provides an alternative to the area's large, pressure-filled public schools, but it is not a panacea for every student, every family.
    This school was a complete game changer for our family. We transferred from a very disappointing experience at MBUSD and immediately saw a difference. The campus is charming, the administrators are warm and welcoming, but it is the exceptional teachers and academic curriculum that shines brightest at this relatively undiscovered gem.
