RYE SCHOOL OF LEADERSHIP
324 Midland Avenue
Rye, New York 10580
Mr. Paul Blank, Director
Serving students from Rye and the surrounding communities, the Rye School of Leadership (R.S.L.) is a school of choice designed to acknowledge the diverse needs of secondary students. Modeled on the Character First™ program developed by the Hyde Schools, the R.S.L. philosophy emphasizes attitude over aptitude, effort over achievement, and character over talent.
R.S.L. serves grades 9 through 12 by providing a small school setting for those students who, for a variety of reasons, are not achieving personal or academic success in a traditional school environment. The program offers the courses required by New York State for high school graduation, while encouraging students to assume personal responsibility for their educational futures. Members of this character-driven community are urged to define and pursue short- and long-term goals, investigate the processes involved in problem solving and decision making, and explore individual interests. The Rye School of Leadership is a family program; parental involvement is expected. Students considering this alternative should discuss the option and application procedures with their guidance counselors, or contact R.S.L. directly.
