"I have always felt that Royal Valley has a family feeling. My colleagues have always been supportive and easy to work with. Our administration makes sure that all staff have the tools to provide the best education possible for our students. It has been not only a great place to work, but also to raise my own children. #RV Family "

"It's such a tight-knit community. My parents were raised here and I was raised here. It's the small town draw with a big city nearby."

Bill Higley, since 1992

"I have taught at Royal Valley for thirty years!  I have lived in North Topeka and now the Meriden area.  Many people have asked me why I haven't applied to teach at a school closer to home without the drive.  My answer has always been the same....our staff!  We have had such an amazing staff since the first day I stepped foot into RVMS.  Everyone is so dedicated to helping our students be successful and we all care about each other and get along so well!  RV has been my 'second home' and the people here have been like family."
