Hilary Paulson was elected to the RCSD Board of Trustees for her first four-year term in 2008. She led the Board of Education as President of the Board in 2013 and 2017.
The school district took action after an independent financial consultant analyzed the RCSD budget and concluded that with declining enrollment, RCSD could not sustain 16 schools with 7,500 students and specifically schools with an enrollment of less than 400 students.
Superintendent Baker thanks the RCSD community for their input during the feedback gathering phase of Planning for Our Future.
At North Star Academy, we provide an educational environment that is designed to meet the unique needs of high achieving and gifted students and to enable them to develop to their fullest potential. The pace of instruction, the depth of the grade level curriculum, the types of assignments, and the range of experience, provide a learning atmosphere that promotes excellence. We believe that students who are academically talented deserve a place built for their specific academic, emotional, and social qualities.
Our vision statement is as follows: We are the North Star Academy Gryphons, landing place of mighty scholars. We were drawn here by our shared academic talent and our desire to be of value to others. Every day we persevere to build a sense of wonder in our community so that we all may soar into a future worthy of our efforts.
