We offer all required core subjects and your choice of elective courses

We take pride in our computerized curriculum. We offer a wide range of classes, as well as several areas where students can concentrate their studies.

RSD High School is now offering dual-enrollment classes with GCC. This means that you can earn both high school credit and college credit for your Senior English class. You will also gain college classroom and writing skills. Students earning credit at the Maricopa Community Colleges must test into the class and are officially students of Glendale Community College—with all the benefits and resources the college offers. Credits are fully transferrable to other colleges and universities and the course is taught by a current GCC instructor. It’s a great way to transition into the college experience and add a little flavor to your high school education.
