Our Staff Support

“At RKHS, we are built around the idea of community and hometown, which is what kohyang translates to from Korean. Our biggest responsibility as adults on campus is to build relationships with our students. Everything that we do is all built around the idea that everyone belongs here and that we are creating a home for students at our school campus.”
