Red Cedar Elementary School lives by their motto and truly does “Whatever It Takes” for every student to succeed. Beginning in Pre-Kindergarten, students are exposed to learning experiences that support their unique and varying level of skill and curiosity.

RCES makes it a priority to help every student reach their fullest potential through their academic offerings. As a Project Based Learning school, RCES encourages students to explore and investigate, ask thoughtful questions, and develop creative solutions to real-world problems. 

Whatever it takes!

In addition to a strong academic program, RCES has incorporated character education as an integral part of their school. The entire school community is committed to supporting every student as they develop into respectful, responsible, and contributing members of society.
