The Rising School (TRS) is a 6th-9th grade no-tuition charter school located at 7444 E. Broadway Blvd. in Tucson. Beginning in 2015-16, we will add grades 10, 11, and 12 over the next three years.

Meet the Teachers night: Tuesday, November 18, 5:30-7:00pm.
At this event, you will follow your child’s class schedule, spending 15 minutes in each class. During that time, you will meet your child’s teachers and learn about our curriculum. Your children are welcome to hang out inside the school during the event. But they are not required to attend.
