RSHS is a comprehensive four-year Christian high school presently enrolling 60 students in grades nine through twelve. The school opened in the fall of 1995 and graduated its first senior class in the spring of 2000. Using the university model, the school meets two days per week with qualified staff for intensive instruction in each course of study.
