Formerly Castle Frank, the school has been reinvented and re-purposed by Principal Barrie Sketchley. It is a non-semester school with an emphasis on the arts. Students can take dance, dramatic arts, music-instrumental (band or strings), vocals, visual and media arts. In 2005, Maclean's Magazine named RHSA one of the best arts-focus high schools in Canada, as well as one of the three best special-focus schools in Canada.
RHSA accepts students from all over the Greater Toronto Area. It is the only arts school in the Toronto District School Board that does not use auditions for acceptance. It is also the only arts school that encourages students to explore interdisciplinary arts by not expecting students to choose a "major" in one art and making students select a variety of arts courses in their first two years at the school.
RHSA has a 670-seat auditorium, two band/orchestra rehearsal spaces, three fully equipped dance studios, two drama rooms, a dark room and various visual art studios used for printmaking, graphic design etc.
