RADFORD HOUSE HIGH SCHOOL
A word from Mrs. Braum
"The future, similar to the present, needs individuals who can assess critically, be emotionally aware, be able to express thoughts and ideas, and to work effectively with others.
These children, future leaders and change-makers, will have to deal with challenges on a planetary scale, solve problems which are immense and impactful on every level and be able to think critically.
The focus at Radford High, therefore, is not on knowledge acquisition but on cross-disciplinary awareness; not on rote learning, but on an engagement with content and an ability to respond appropriately."
