Welcome to Rothschild Leadership Academy (RLA), home of the Falcons – “Where We Train Students for Leadership”. I am honored to serve this community as assistant principal.
At RLA our faculty and staff work diligently to build a culture in which respect, leadership, and accountability are embedded in all we do. This empowers students to reach their academic best in a safe and supportive environment. Students are encouraged to engage in authentic learning, collaborate with peers, and take academic risks.
Research shows that parental involvement is a key to a student’s success in middle school. We need you to be active in your child’s education. Encourage him/her to read 30 minutes nightly. Discuss those characteristics which develop respect, leadership, and accountability. Communicate frequently with your child’s teachers, and support school activities and events.
Again, I am grateful to serve you and your child. I extend an open invitation to you to work with RLA in training your child for leadership. Please do not hesitate to contact me with suggestions, comments, or concerns.
