REYNOLDS LEARNING ACADEMY

REYNOLDS SCHOOL DISTRICT (FAIRVIEW, OR)


RLA is the alternative high school in Reynold School District. Students are referred to or choose to transfer to RLA because the traditional high school setting hasn’t worked for them. Some students have been expelled from Reynolds High School, the District’s large main high school, while others struggle with anxiety and other challenges that require the more supportive environment and smaller class sizes that RLA provides. Most of the students attending RLA are behind on credits and some have missed a significant portion of school in earlier years, which puts them at risk of not graduating from high school without an alternative option that provides more dedicated support.

RLA has been participating in the Phoenix program since 2013 and has significantly influenced the school environment. The program meets a number of needs within the school community, including

  • Providing social-emotional learning supports for students

  • Fostering connection and positive community among students

  • Promoting independence and resilience

  • Providing opportunities for positive risk-taking
