An SLC is a small group of students (about 250) in grades 9-12 that shares

the same teachers for 4 years, and takes most of its classes in a somewhat

contained area of their school

• Students rank their top 3 choices and almost always get their first choice

• “Loop” with teachers: have the same teacher twice during high school

• Elective options related to the SLC’s theme• Non-core classes are with all RHS students• Advanced Placement and honors classes are

open to the whole school
