RHS is a National Banner Unified Champion School!
Rockville High School has been named a National Banner Unified Champion School for its commitment to inclusion! We successfully met 10 standards of excellence determined by Special Olympics, with a focus on Unified Sports, inclusive youth leadership, and whole-school engagement.
Special Olympics recognized 155 National Banner Unified Champion Schools for the 2019/2020 season. We are extremely proud to be the state with the most schools who have achieved this status - with 31 - especially in light of the challenges presented by Covid-19.
To achieve Unified Champion Banner status, schools must demonstrate a commitment to inclusion by meeting 10 standards of excellence. These standards were developed by a national panel of leaders from Special Olympics and the education community. The primary activities within these standards include: Special Olympics Unified Sports® (students with and without disabilities train and compete as teammates), Inclusive Youth Leadership and Whole-School Engagement.
