  • As a former graduate of Rapid City Central High School, and now having some life experience as a reference, I wouldn't chose to have grown up anywhere except Rapid City, S.D., and attending RCHS.

  • I can't express strongly enough how proud and fortunate I feel to have attended and graduated from Rapid City Central (1968). The education and preparation for life I received from all the teachers and staff has served me well throughout my life. The principles and values imparted have also provided a strong platform from which to make the right choices in life. Thanks again, and GO COBBLERS.
