Principal's Message

  • Principal Greetings and welcome to Amelia Street/13 Acres and REAL School’s homepage, the home of the Eagles! I am thrilled that you have decided to view our school’s website in order to learn more about the wonderful students, staff, and programs we have to offer. Our three therapeutic schools have a reputation of excellence and we will continue to strive to become the best.  We are about to embark upon a new school name for next year with great enthusiasm and anticipation of new opportunities that will enhance our instructional program and school community as a whole.

    We are committed to providing innovative lessons to our students, incorporating technology in order to meet the needs of the 21st century learner along with behavioral strategies that will help them in their future. 

    Our school community is dedicated to providing our students with a well-rounded educational experience.  While the core curriculum is provided for all students, we believe that it is critical to provide leadership opportunities, character education and exposure to the technologies in order to prepare students to compete with their global counterparts.

    We encourage you to visit our beautiful school and see that we are a school committed to children, with a positive and purposeful focus. You will find that this is a vibrant and engaging community of teachers and learners. To our parents, we believe that your involvement is an essential component to the academic and behavioral success of your child.   I encourage you to visit our website often, meet your child’s teacher and to get engaged in all that our schools have to offer.  Your participation in our school is needed and greatly appreciated!

    I look forward to partnering with you on behalf of our future leaders as we model success “Do what I Do”…No Excuses!

    Enthusiastically,

    Dr. Mark Phillips, Principal

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - September 18 (PM), 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, To all who celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, RPS wishes you a "Shanah Tovah Umetukah," a Good and Sweet Year! In my family, brisket is the go-to food for this holiday. Mine's been cooking all day; can't wait to hear the boys' verdict :). Thank you again for all the feedback about our virtual instruction. As I shared yesterday, we're drafting some adjusted schedules based on your input. We'll have details at Monday's School Board meeting. In the meantime, feel free to keep emailing any thoughts you have! As you have likely seen from my special RPS Direct messages, we've had a number of positive COVID-19 cases recently. These cases are a reminder that the coronavirus is still very active in our community, and we all need to take every precaution. A few reminders for RPS employees:

  • RPS Direct Update - September 18, 2020

    Dear #RPS Strong Family, I'm reaching out with this special RPS Direct to share that two RPS employees have tested positive for COVID-19. One of the employees is a staff member at Henry L. Marsh, III Elementary School. This individual was at Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School on 9-11. The other employee is a member of the Transportation Team and was at the Belt Boulevard Transportation Office on 9-17. Both employees are in isolation, per CDC and local guidelines. At the direction of the Richmond City Health Department (RCHD), we encourage anyone who was present at Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School or the Belt Boulevard Transportation Office on the dates listed above to monitor their symptoms and reach out to their primary care provider if they have any concerns. Individuals can also contact RCHD’s COVID-19 hotline at (804) 205-3501.
