VISION
“Where Academics and the Arts Embrace Excellence”
MISSION STATEMENT
We believe all children can learn; therefore, our mission as educators at Reid Ross Classical School is to teach all students.  We strive to provide rigorous academics, current technology, and the performing arts, while enveloping character, school pride, and civic responsibility from middle school through high school in a safe and structured environment.
BELIEF STATEMENT
“All Students Can Learn”: It is our belief that strong education programming is framed within the parameters of the arts.  Education is a team responsibility that begins in the home, with the family, extends to the school, and encompasses the entire community. In turn, this provides the overall foundation for learning throughout the school.
HISTORY

Fayetteville’s Reid Ross Classical is a public school that serves grades 6-12 in the Cumberland County Schools district.Reid Ross High School was named after Mr. Charles Reid Ross, who served in the field of education for forty-two years as a teacher, principal, and as superintendent of Fayetteville City Schools.  Reid Ross Senior High School welcomed its first class in 1968 and thrived as a high school until 1985.  The school’s team mascot was and still currently is The Mighty Cougars, and the school’s colors are blue, orange, and white.

In 1985, Reid Ross High School became Reid Ross Junior High School serving grades sixth through ninth, which in turn, during 1995 was replaced with Reid Ross Middle School serving sixth through eighth graders and remained so until 1999 functioning as both a traditional and year-round school.

Reid Ross Classical School became officially established in 1999 and operates on a year-round calendar.  This year-round school presently incorporates grades sixth through twelfth embracing the belief that all children can learn; therefore, the mission of its educators is to teach all students.  The school strives to provide rigorous academics, current technology, and the performing arts, while enveloping character, school pride, and civic responsibility from middle school through high school in a safe and structured environment.  This small school setting, which enforces strict discipline and a uniform code of dress, enhances critical thinking through participation in Socratic Seminars.  In addition, it focuses on student leadership, personal accountability, and community service at both the middle school and high school levels.

We invite you to accept the challenge and join our community family at Reid Ross Classical School, which provides continuous education ranging from grades sixth through twelfth and offers a college preparatory course of study!
