Randolph High School is a comprehensive high school that features small learning communities for freshmen and sophomore students. The small learning communities (SLC) or teams link dynamic course work that develops students’ abilities to think critically and to apply problem solving strategies. Students in small learning communities have the same teachers who share information about the learning styles each child has within their SLC. They also share common planning and meeting time.
Evidence of the success of these small learning communities is already occurring. There has been an increase in MCAS scores the past four years, as well as an increase in attendance and decrease in discipline issues. More students are participating in sports and extracurricular activities and more communication is occuring between the teachers and parents.
Randolph High School students study subjects and learn skills that will bring them success both in school and beyond graduation. Randolph provides honors classes in English, social studies, mathematics and science courses. Advanced Placement (AP) courses are available to qualified students in grades 11 and 12 in English, math, science, social studies and world language classes.
Harvard University called RHS “An exemplary and outstanding high school” in 2010. In 2009 RHS was identified as among the most effective in the state at producing eighth- to tenth- grade learning gains with racially and socially-economically diverse student bodies.
