RMCS opened its doors for the first time in August 2005 to 9 students in grades 1-3. We now have over 50 students in grades K-12. Our school day runs from 8:45-2:45 Monday through Fridays. We have found the writings of British educator Charlotte Mason to be the most important voice in the shaping of this work and are unabashedly seeking to nurture children (and parents!) who are full participants in all of life.
Red Mountain Community School recognizes the need to offer after school care to our families. Our afternoon hours try to blend the need for companionship and solitude. During Red Mountain Afternoons we offer time in the out of doors ( a long stint of play at the park or the garden is a must), a corner for quiet reading, a healthy snack, crafts and lessons in new skills, music lessons (banjo, guitar and ukulele available with enough demand) and jaunts to the library.
Red Mountain Afternoons are offered on Monday-Friday afternoons from 2:30-5:30 p.m. We also offer early drop off at 7:45 a.m. For more information and cost of this offering call the school at 218-4965.
prov.en.der weekends are the teacher-training and parent enrichment arm of our work.
