What personal or academic counseling resources are available at this school? Is there a dedicated college counselor at the school? Is he/she familiar with universities worldwide?
There is a designated college counselor. Today there was a visit from NYU. There are usually several college fairs each year. We have had Stanford, Northeastern, Penn State and many other university representatives come. Also a lot of universities have country outreach programs where they have students who are attending that university link up with the high schoolers here. My son who graduated last year had a Harvard Student reach out to talk to him. - Nov 9, 2017
There is a college counselor but she was not well informed about US colleges and universities; she is Canadian. Final transcripts for students were not sent to schools and caused one student to have her offered denied and another to have delayed registration. - Nov 2, 2017
There is a dedicated college counselor. The school recently had visits from Northeastern in Boston, and several other schools. Last year, Columbia, Stanford, and UPenn were some of the schools that visited. The counselor is familiar with schools world-wide, and students from RAS have been accepted into good schools in many countries. - Oct 18, 2016
A-. College counseling. Very good hands-on counselor who is unfortunately leaving this year. C-. Personal Counseling. The guidance counselor is well trusted and liked. She has instituted a program to make up for the character education these particular grade levels did not receive in elementary. - May 19, 2016
