Our Alumni Rock highlights former students who gained skills of leadership, critical thinking,
collaboration and listening to other points of view throughout their education
at RPS 205.
Meet Dr. Zach Morris
Dr. Zach Morris didn't achieve his dream of being a physician-scientist alone. A Rhodes Scholar who earned two degrees at Harvard, Morris is indebted to the teachers of RPS 205 who helped him along the way. He graduated from Guilford High School in 1998.
