Reach High Scholars Program
In late 2007, the Raymond High School Alumni Association, in conjunction with a group of RHS faculty members, parents and alumni started the Reach High Scholars Program. It encourages Raymond Middle School and High School Students to “reach high” in their pursuit of an education. The Program supplements the resources which the Raymond School District is in a position to provide.
The Program is involved in an evolutionary process that is beginning to show results, with more students applying to and attending highly competitive colleges. There has been a significant buy-in by parents and students, with as many as 50 to 100 attending some evening meetings. There is a buzz in the high school about summer programs, college visits and a desire to strive to limits previously perceived as unreachable, from Ivy League universities to state technical schools.
