This year, Radford High School will be participating in a research project with Radford University dealing with cybersecurity. It is a study that will provide our school systems and others with important data that will help us keep our students safer as we continue to increase educational technology resources. If you would like to opt your child/children out of this study, please contact Mr. Jeff Smith, principal, or Mr. Darden Freeman, assistant principal.


On behalf of RCPS, I hope everyone has had a restful, exciting and fun filled summer break. We look forward to another wonderful year as we once again set forth to meet our mission of Excellence in Education…Every Student, Every Day!
