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.

  • IB Diploma Cohort

    Big changes are coming to RBR’s International Baccalaureate program with steps being taken to bolster enrollment in the Diploma Program. A new ninth grade IB cohort will be formed to participate in a variety of experiences aligned with the IB learner profile. “We are excited about building new pathways to engage our students in deep learning experiences,” says VPA Supervisor Lisa Boyle, who coordinates the IB program with Rose Powers. Diploma graduates have praised the program for preparing them to excel in challenging academic work after high school. Recently, RBR diploma students have been admitted to many prestigious universities and colleges, including Cornell, Tulane, and the University of Michigan.
