Rolling Hills Prep and Renaissance Schools are fully committed to the physical, mental, and emotional health of all members of our community. Students who are leading lives of fulfillment and balance are capable of truly having an impact on the lives of those around them and the world beyond. Although we live in a time of stressful demands, in a pace of life that seems to grow ever more frenetic, we believe that providing education and programming around healthy bodies and creative spirits can help our students and families reach their potential as learners, as community members, and as global citizens. Initiatives and programs that RHP and Ren have proudly implemented to date to support these goals include:

  • Staff professional development and relational learning training

  • LGBTQ sensitivity training

  • Integrated mindfulness

  • Parent education events

  • Advisory for all students

  • Block scheduling

  • Counseling services

  • College guidance

  • Freshman wellness seminars

Additionally, we have partnered with the South Bay Families Connected project to bring you this webpage that offers our community easy access to free local and national teen wellness resources and information that aim to support us as educators and parents in our shared goal of keeping our students on a healthy path to maturity.
