Another distinctive feature of the RDS High School, something Ray pointed to first when I asked him how RDS would differ itself, is its Life Planning Curriculum. Students take this full credit, equal weight course for all four years of their high school program, and it is intended to treat their personal development as seriously as their intellectual growth. A list of topics of study in the curriculum is as follows: Self-Awareness, Career Exploration, Effective Communication, Health and wellness, and Leadership (9); Your Brain and You: An interdisciplinary course, Diversity and Inclusion principles and their application to the real world (10); Financial Responsibility and philanthropy, College Counseling, Career Exploration, and Discovery Projects (11 &12).
