R³EACH, “Rethinking and Renewing Rural Education, Achieving Collaborative Heights.”  The model embraces the idea that our nation’s challenges present real opportunities for rural places, and a sustainable American future must include a thriving rural landscape that has at its very core a thriving educational system which R³EACHes every child and guides him/her on a pathway to success in college, career, and life.  The R³EACH model will be further supported by a plethora of teaching strategies, practices, and concepts that allow for big opportunities in a small rural setting. UCS will offer a personalized curriculum for every student that emphasizes place-based, real-world learning, and community problem-solving.
