Congratulations to our graduating fifth-grade Class of 2018! This class is The Raleigh School's 20th anniversary class of elementary school graduates. We wish this kind, compassionate and creative group of leaders all the best as they begin their middle school experience. They will attend Cary Academy, St. Timothy's School, Daniels Middle School, and the Emerson Waldorf School, among others.
Everything we do here is intended for one purpose – educating young children in the ideal manner.
We are passionate about nurturing children’s natural inclination to wonder, explore and discover.
Using an active, inquiry-based approach, we engage children’s hands, hearts and minds every day.
A huge congratulations to our Science Olympiad varsity, which was named champion at the spring event! The JV team brought home second-place honors! The Science Olympiad program at The Raleigh School includes more than 80 students and many parent and staff coaches, who give their time and enthusiasm each week. The program is led by veteran teacher Mr. Steve Sather.
Our fifth grade spends the year focused on "choose kind." This year, they reached out to victims of the wildfires in Carpentaria, California, with a simple video reminding the West Coast students to stay strong in the face of disaster. "At The Raleigh School, we see social and emotional skills as being very valued and it's something we teach every day," said teacher Jennifer Brunetti. Students connected with that specific town in California because Brunetti had relatives there. Many families were displaced from their homes by the fire and the mudslides that followed.
This week, the California students responded to let TRS know how much their kindness meant. "They wanted to care for us even though they didn't know us. They care because we're people," one California student says in the video.
