I find that many teachers are not willing to help, whether you ask or not. And I agree with the fact that the school works for superstars and kids in need of special help, but we, average students are ignored.

I went to RHS junior and senior year after moving from Arizona. What a hugh difference this made in my education! This town cares about education. The small class size and caring teachers helped me to stay focused on my future. I would recommend this town and its schools to anyone.

RHS is an amazing school, and is flexible to the needs of all types of students. The administration is great, Dr. Lindsey the principle is excellent. The extracurricular activities are participated in by all students, and they can get as close to a small community experience of a boarding school here ...  Read more
