REMINDER - On Tuesday, February 25th, 2020 we will use part of the school day to test our sophomores with the Preliminary SAT (PSAT 10) starting at 8:00 am (10th graders report at 7:45 am). If you choose to opt your student of the test, and we ask that you notify Mr. Dobson’s office. However, we ask that you remember that taking this test is important in helping students prepare for the PSAT/NMSQT in 11th grade and the SAT in 12th grade if they plan to attend a 4-year university after graduation. Sophomores will be assigned to various places on campus - lists will be posted around campus for students to check upon their arrival.
ALSO... PSAT 9 FOR 90 PRE-REGISTERED FRESHMEN
If your freshmen student will be taking part in the PSAT 9, also held this Tuesday, you have already been notified via email. (We have also notified families with students on the waitlist.) The 90 freshmen will test in the library and should also report at 7:45 am.

FOOD DELIVERIES FOR STUDENTS
Attention Parents and Students:
Please be aware that food deliveries from outside vendors such as Door Dash, Uber Eats and Grub Hub will not be allowed to deliver food to the Royal campus unless it is during our scheduled lunch time. Students may not leave class to receive food deliveries. Food may only be delivered to the front office and not delivered over the fence or through the gates. The office will not accept fountain drinks or any drink that does not have a sealed lid. The student's name must be clearly labeled on the food item. Failure to follow these guidelines will jeopardize any food delivery services at Royal High School.
ST. ROSE OF LIMA PARKING LOT
Attention Parents and Students: Please do not use the St. Rose of Lima Parking Lot to drop off and pick up your students. They have asked us to relay that their parking lot has had very heavy traffic and their parents can't get in to pick up their students from their own school. You can meet your students off of Arcane in the back of the school, on Hudspeth to the East of the school, or in either parking lot. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
This Week: Rhodes College
Click here for Admissions Info
Click here for Tuition & Financial Aid Info
Acceptance Rate: 51%
DETAILS: Since 1848, Rhodes College has been instilling the timeless values of truth and honor in Southern sons and daughters, and today increasing numbers of students from the rest of the country are discovering its charms. The school’s honor code means exams are not proctored and backpacks are left unattended in the cafeteria. Its small size gives everyone an opportunity to take on leadership roles in campus clubs and organizations, and people are generally friendly. Throw in the college’s proximity to Memphis’s world-famous Beale Street, barbecue, and the blues, and it’s clear that Rhodes offers a winning combination. “Rhodes students are generally fun-loving people with passions for academic advancement and community engagement,” says a senior.
To receive a Rhodes degree, students must demonstrate proficiency in 12 areas that form the foundation of the liberal arts. These include being able to critically examine questions of meaning and value, developing excellence in written communication, and understanding how historical forces have shaped human cultures. A new, yearlong First Year Experience course is also required of freshmen.
Rhodes is especially strong in the natural and social sciences, thanks to labs with state-of-the-art equipment. Business is the most popular major, followed by biology, psychology, English, and neuroscience. Educational studies is the newest major available. Aside from traditional lecture-style classes, the college offers seminars, honors programs, one-on-one Directed Inquiry tutorials, and interdisciplinary majors. Rhodes is a member of the Associated Colleges of the South, and it participates in a second degree program for engineers with Washington University in St. Louis. The academic climate at Rhodes is “demanding and challenging,” according to one student. “Professors expect quality contributions.” Sixty-nine percent of classes have fewer than 20 students, which means professors are more than talking heads.
RC Student Perspective: “Every professor I’ve had has been very personable, available, interesting, and invested in the students."
