What We Believe
At RCPS, we believe that a diverse staff that reflects the cultural demographics of the classroom benefits staff, faculty, and students. A diversified workforce adds vitality to the organization and is better suited to meeting the unique needs of a distinct student and community population.

Students who interact with peers and faculty of different backgrounds have a broader exposure to the world at large and develop community skills that help them compete in a diverse society. To that end, our Human Resources Department continually seeks to hire and retain highly qualified personnel from a variety of cultures, races, ages, and other backgrounds. We regularly send recruiters to colleges and universities across the nation, including minority colleges. More than 60% of our teachers have advanced degrees - master's, education specialist, or doctorate - and an average of 14 years teaching experience.
