  • i agree they need more elective courses. As the football getting all the money comment it has a budget just like every other sport it just makes more money so they have more money to spend. Rifle high school has a high rate of turnover in teachers due to the local economy it is hard to live on a teachers wage here.The administration is top notch and rely cares about helping every student to become a productive member of society.The student however has to make an effort the help is there you simply have to ask for it. if you do not actively pursue your education, the teachers are not going to hold your hand and make you succeed. As for the cameras they are there for your safety and had you and your predecessors not abused your privileges we would not need them. overall i believe rifle high school provides a great education to those students willing to give an effort to succeed!

  • All this school cares about is football! Sad thing is the coaches do not care much for their players unless there great! They have very little for majority of their students to be invovled in and cater to a small group of students. You need help in a subject forget it! Unless you dont get it during class don't bug your teacher for additional help!
