Dear Royal Families,


Do you have family recipes that you want to share? Highlanders, we need you! Help us create a Royal Family Cookbook by sending your favorite family recipes to royalrecipe2019@gmail.com. RHS Leadership is creating a Legacy of Recipes that each family is proud of while also raising money to offset COVID-related financial losses. The price of the cookbook will be determined once the cookbook size is finalized. Recipes must be emailed by October 16th. Email your family favorite recipes and include your first and last name (include Royal Class graduating year if (or will be) a Royal Graduate) to royalrecipe2019@gmail.com.


Sincerely,

Royal High Leadership

ACADEMICS INFORMATION

TUTORING SUPPORT - RHS CENTER FOR ACADEMIC SUCCESS

Royal High's Center for Academic Success (tutoring program) will be available starting Tuesday, October 13th and for each remaining Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday school day for 2020-2021. Sign up here. This year, during distance and/or hybrid learning, we are proud to offer online tutoring support from upperclassmen leaders from our chapters of the National Honor Society and Mu Alpha Theta Math Honor Society. Our new members have now been inducted and are ready to support their peers. Each week, you may sign up for tutoring via the CAS Homepage. Tutoring is offered this year ONLY for Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Earth Science, and Biology. Please review the CAS Homepage for the schedule of sessions. Each week, a Zoom link will be emailed to those students signed up for a particular day. All sessions will be monitored and supervised by an adult staff member (admin, librarian, or teacher).


CITIZEN SCHOLARS DIPLOMA SEAL PROGRAM 2020-2021

Our Citizen Scholars Institute Diploma Seal Program is held in partnership with the Ronald Reagan Education Foundation. We are ready to begin our process for 20-21. We invite you to participate to impact our world and to earn a graduation distinction unavailable at any other school. Student participants have the opportunity to create, plan, and implement life-changing service learning and civic engagement projects to better our community and world. Learn about our Program here


  • THE EVENT: To begin this year's process, the Royal staff CSI Advisory Team and leaders from Reagan Education will be holding an informational Zoom meeting on October 19th, 2020 from 6:30 - 8:00 pm online. (Parents are not required to attend, but are welcome to if they so choose.)

  • For questions, contact any of our Advisory Team: Mr. Dobson, Mrs. Broberg, Mr. Dennert, or Mr. Downey


ADVANCED PLACEMENT TESTING REGISTRATION

Registration for AP Testing (Spring 2021) opened Wednesday, September 16th at 8:00 am via a link on the Royal High School Homepage. All students currently enrolled in an AP course can register (even if your AP class will be held in the 2nd or 3rd term of distance learning). Students at RHS are not required to take the AP test for any AP course they are enrolled in, but it is encouraged. Information and instructions have been emailed to all AP Students. Please read and follow them closely. Registering for the test and paying for the test are done on two separate online systems (both must be done). The deadline for registering at RHS is November 10th, 2020. For questions, contact Mr. Dobson.


PSAT/NMSQT

In previous years we have administered the PSAT/NMSQT to 11th and 10th-grade students. Due to our current circumstances, we are unable to host this event this fall. The College Board has now opened up a new date on Tuesday, January 26, 2021, which we are hoping to offer to our students. The January administration will have the same benefits as the October PSAT/NMSQT, including eligibility for programs administered by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. We will send families an email by mid-October when ordering for the January administration is open. Please contact Mr. Dobson if you have any questions.

If you are planning to take an IB exam for the May 2021 exam session, you need to complete the IB exam registration form and make payment in ASB after this is completed. Registration for exams will not be processed until payment is made. Exams can be paid for in ASB during normal office hours from 7:30-3:30 (closed for lunch from 1:00-2:00). The back gate is open so you can come anytime. If students are on free/reduced lunch or need payment plans or you have further questions, please contact Mrs. Lev, IB coordinator, via email at kari.lev@simivalleyusd.org.

COUNSELING DEPARTMENT SERVICES

During this difficult time, we realize students may be struggling academically, interpersonally, and emotionally. We also realize there is a unique level of stress on all families with school-aged children. To that end, the Royal Counseling Department is available for support, to connect you with local resources, and to help provide foundational support for student's at school and in distance learning. Supports include but are not limited to:

  • Academic Struggle and Support
  • Communication with RHS Staff (and support for distance learning)
  • Social-Emotional Well-Being
  • College & Career Planning
  • Supporting families in ensuring that students are reporting to distance learning and thriving


For help with any of these, students and/or families can begin by emailing their counselor to discuss needs, discuss resources, and create strategies. (For additional questions regarding counseling services, please reach out to Mr. Dobson.)

FEATURED COLLEGE

Royal aims to provide insight into unique college options for students & families. Our source is the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2020 - an annual comprehensive catalog of diverse universities here in California and nationwide.


Kalamazoo College

Click here for Admissions Info

Click here for Tuition & Financial Aid Info

Enrollment: 1,406

Acceptance Rate: 73%


DETAILS: Kalamazoo College is a small school in America’s heartland. But college subsidies enable the majority of students to go abroad during their years here, making the school a launching pad to the world. In addition to international education, the school’s K-Plan emphasizes teaching, internships (80 percent of students have at least one), and independent research (as seniors, all students complete a senior individualized project, with one-on-one faculty supervision). Students are exposed to a demanding academic schedule and high expectations from faculty. “K is a very rigorous place,” warns one student, “characterized by people who want to do well and are passionate about their work.”


Life on Kalamazoo’s wooded, 60-acre campus centers on the Quad, a green lawn where students ponder their destinies and play ultimate Frisbee with equal ease. With its rolling hills, Georgian architecture, and brick-laid streets, the campus has the quaint look more typical of historic New England than of nearby Kalamazoo, which, with surrounding communities, has 225,000 residents. A new 30,000-square-foot fitness and wellness center opened in 2016.


After their sophomore year, most of Kalamazoo’s undergrads meet life’s challenges with suitcase in hand, studying wherever their heart takes them, for the regular tuition price. The college offers three-, six-, and nine-month immersive study abroad programs that are available to all students, regardless of major; all credit earned during study abroad transfers back to Kalamazoo College. “I studied abroad in Clermont-Ferrand, France, for nine months. I went to a French university, lived with a French family, and was completely immersed in French culture. It was a huge learning and growing experience, and I am very thankful to have been able to do it,” says one student. Seventy-five percent of students take part in study-abroad programs. In fact, Kalamazoo offers students the opportunity to study via dozens of programs in 26 countries. Kalamazoo’s Center for Experiential Education is another resource for information on careers, internships, and study abroad.

KC Student Perspective: “Professors here are also doing research or work in their fields, so you may be able to work in a professor’s lab during the school year or summer, or hear about their clinical practice in psychology, or learn about the process of writing a book."
