Mission Statement

The Ravenswood City School District works collaboratively to create a quality instructional program which empowers students to make choices, achieve their personal best and be productive and responsible members of our society. The Ravenswood Makerspace Collaborative exists to introduce STEAM subjects to students outside of a typical classroom, allows them to develop hobbies and skill areas at their own pace, and encourages creativity in various forms.

Description

The Ravenswood City School District (RCSD) in San Mateo County is a unique academic environment that draws from the culturally rich communities of East Palo Alto and East Menlo Park. The ethnic make-up of the population is dominantly Hispanic (70%), African American (20%), Pacific Islander (9%) and other 1%. RCSD serves some 4,500 students in kindergarten through eighth grades in seven elementary schools, and a child development center. In addition, RCSD holds charters for five charter schools, including one high school.

Our school district takes pride in our Makerspace program, in which the subjects of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics come together in the form of lunchtime activities available to all students between Kindergarten and 8th grade. In these special classrooms equipped with art supplies and impressive technological tools, students are guided to explore activity stations at their own pace. Here, without the burden of grades, the students have the opportunity to discover their passions and express creativity.
