The mission of the Resiliency Preparatory School is to create a small learning community which will foster a safe, supportive and academically challenging environment for all students to thrive and achieve success. Through the mutual creation of nurturing and trusting relationships, students will be inspired to invest in themselves and their futures. They will be prepared and inspired to achieve success in MCAS testing, to graduate from high school and to pursue higher education opportunities.
W e are Responsible! We are Respectful! We are Reliable! We are Ready to Learn!
We are Resiliency Prep!
RPS is now offering online classes, created by Fall River teachers, for those students whose family and work obligations make it difficult to attend school regularly. These courses require students to come to RPS to take the courses online, but offer them shorter school days and flexible hours. See Mr. Correia for more information.
RPS also offers afterschool courses and credit recovery courses. See Mrs. Vinacco for more information.

Attendance Is The Key!
At RPS, we recognize the importance of good attendance to overall learning and achievement. Being present in school is of paramount importance to being successful at school. Students who miss classes miss out on the opportunity to succeed and to choose their career path. Like all of Fall River, Resiliency Prep realizes the importance of children being in school EVERY day!
RPS seniors attended a career fair at Durfee High School. Students were able to gather information from professionals from many different careers paths to help them make important decisions once there days at RPS are over.
RPS in the Community!
Students from the Biology and Marine Biology classes at RPS celebrated science at the Boston Museum of Science in early January. A good day of seeing science in action was had by all!
Students joined the art instructor, Ms. Darlene Pavao on a pre-Christmas journey to NYC, to see Times Squared and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Great News! RPS is partnering with Fall River's Striking Beauties Boxing Club and will be offering supervised boxing lessons at RPS after school. Contact Mrs. Vinaccio for more information.

What's happening in RPS Classrooms?
Reconstructing the past to understand the present
Students in Mr. Rosenfeld's class made sod huts, as they studied the way in which our forefathers lived before us. Students did a great job reconstructing the past!
Take a look at some of the amazing artwork coming from Ms. Pavao's Art classes, which meet both during the school day and afterschool.
