This is the dawn of a new age at RMS … as of academic year 2019-2020 all RCSD middle school students will be located at the previous Cesar Chavez School at 2450 Ralmar Avenue, East Palo Alto, CA. This is big news for science for several reasons. First, with all middle school students in one location the District can accommodate subject-specific teaching, meaning we have dedicated 6th, 7th and 8th grade science teachers! Second, we can deliver a lab experience to all students of a grade in one day rather than spread over weeks when the classes were dispersed. Finally, three new grade specific science lab rooms will be available (in October 2019) which will make lab experiences easier to run and more like a high school lab experience. We are three weeks into the school year and each grade level has complete at least one lab!
