The Academic CORE at RBR

  • Rutgers Writing Program is Coming to RBR!

    We are excited to announce that Red Bank Regional High School is partnering with the Rutgers University Writing Program to ensure all students are ready to meet college-level writing expectations. The cornerstone course, Expository Writing 101, will be offered to seniors starting in the 2020-2021 school year. Students will explore a series of current non-fiction texts that are chosen to spark discussion, debate, and critical thinking. A series of writing experiences will inspire students to engage with these texts to develop original arguments and interpretations that are supported by textual evidence. Students will receive feedback from their RBR instructor as well as Rutgers writing professors and, at the completion of the course, will be eligible to submit a portfolio of five papers to the RU Writing Program to earn Rutgers credits.

The ARTs at RBR

  • RBRHS Creative Writing and Drama Students As Lou & Liz

    If you listen to “Lou & Liz in the Morning” on 94.3 FM/”the Point” you may have been surprised to hear a recent skit by a cast of RBR students.

    It all started when Meaghan McDavitt, the creative writing teacher at RBR, reached out to the show to ask how the students could promote their upcoming Winter Showcase. Soon it was decided that the students would write, sing and perform a sketch where they impersonate Lou & Liz announcing the event. It was a true VPA collaboration in which creative writing students prepared a script performed by a cast of VPA drama majors The piece was then filmed by RBR Interactive Media students. Lou & Liz liked the video so much they asked the students to perform it on the air.

    According to the actual hosts, the students did a great job and “maybe sounded a little better impersonating us than we really sound!” You can check out the video of their impersonation below.

    Don’t miss the Drama and Creative Writing Winter Showcase on December 19th, at 7pm!
