Redwood Preparatory Charter School is a community-based education project initiated by parents, teachers, and community members. Through this charter school, the RPC founding committee seeks to increase learning opportunities for the children of the Eel River Valley. Redwood Prep will provide local students and their families an academically rigorous, college-bound educational opportunity. The educational program is designed to be a child centered, project and inquiry-based, active learning environment aligned with the National Core Content and California State Standards. The founders have chosen to base their curriculum on well-researched, proven instructional strategies and programs that support students academically, emotionally, and socially.
