Class of 2024 Dedicates Yearbook to Ralph Avella

The Senior Class dedicated this year’s edition of Ye Dial, the Rutgers Preparatory School yearbook, to beloved Upper School science teacher Ralph Avella. A cornerstone of our community for nearly 45 years, Ralph Avella has impacted the lives of countless students with his passion for science, his positive outlook, and his seemingly endless enthusiasm for all things RPS.

Students from his advisory group shared the following message for Ralph at today’s Upper School Morning Meeting:

“Mr. Avella, we could not have been able to finish our high school career without you. We are so grateful for your outstanding, positive attitude towards our advisory. We always look forward to Thursday and appreciate the cookies you give us every year before the holidays, your excitement about Burger Blast, and the stories you tell us during 9th period advisory. Mr. Avella, you have been an inspiration and incredible role model for us all, and we could never thank you enough. We are excited to share our futures with you when we come back to visit. We love you, Mr. Avella!”
