Ralph J. Bunche Academy cultivates the genius and resilience of our scholars so that they become positive, self-determined individuals committed to serving their community. RJB students are communicators with a drive to achieve their goals no matter the challenges before them. Their resilience is a badge of honor and pride that no one can take from them. The RJB community is one that serves its parents, adult students, and community alike, not the other way around, because only through listening, proactivity, and cultural humility can everlasting social change occur.
Ralph J. Bunche students will:
…commit to building ongoing meaningful and personal relationships with students, staff, family members, and community partners to support a student’s sense of identity, goal setting, and a personal belief in themselves.
…engage in academic endeavors that support the “whole child”, build confidence through challenge in their academic abilities, and develop skills through PBL that spark a passion for learning.
…leave feeling confident in their 2-year post-graduation plan with experiences of exploring careers, college, and other areas of interest.
