Hello NRHS friends and families,

Welcome to the 2015-16 school year at New Rochelle High School! I am so excited to welcome you back to what I know will be a productive year of growth and learning. If you are new to the NRHS family, you will quickly learn why we are so proud of our school and the community that supports it. You will be hard pressed to find a school that provides the extraordinary educational opportunities that are available for our students.

NRHS is the perfect place to master the subjects and skills where you have already demonstrated strengths as well as to discover new ideas and interests. Our highly qualified staff are dedicated to the singular purpose of helping every child in our school reach their full potential.

As always, please feel free to stop by or drop me a line at rrichardson@nredlearn.org if you have any questions or concerns.

Have a great school year!
PSAT/NMSQT Wednesday October 14, 2015           
The PSAT/NMSQT will be administered to all sophomores and juniors at New Rochelle High School on Wednesday, October 14, 2015

New NRHS Bell Schedule for 2015-16 

This year NRHS has a new bell schedule.  The new schedule will allow us to provide academic intervention services (AIS) and enrichment opportunities to students during the school day without pulling them out of class. Each class will still be 48 minutes long.  1st period classes will still begin at 8:15 AM and the day will end at 3:07 PM.  The major changes to the schedule are the following:

  • Six Day Rotation - The schedule will have a 6 day rotation instead of a 2 day rotation.  For most students, this means that instead of thinking of a “1” or “2” day, they will think about an “odd” or “even” day.
  • 8 Periods – We will have a straight 1 through 8 period schedule with the elimination of the a,b,c split periods.
  • 3 Lunch Periods – Students will have lunch during period 4, 5 or 6.
Bell Schedule 2015-16 3.07.pdf
An Information Meeting for JUNIORS and SENIORS who are interested in the German Exchange will be held on Monday, September 21 at 3:15 in Room 367.  Students who participated last year will be in attendance to share their experience.  If you cannot attend, but are interested in the program, please contact Mr. Goldberg in Room 361D or at sgoldberg@nredlearn.org.   See attached for more details.
