  • Great students, great teachers, very poor administration. I would not send my student to this school or district. Ask them how they intend to improve their STAR scores or graduation rates in the coming years?

  • I'm a student at RHS and find the school to be very good in everything. We are expanding and becoming bigger and better in many ways. 2006-07 was a very hard year for some seniors because of the new rules and many new teachers. Seniors did not enjoy their last year in RHS because as many believe that as long as we come to learn the dress code should not be so harsh. This is a way for the students to express themselves in their own unique way. They should let us wear what we want.
