I also graduated form RRHS, and I would advise you not to send your children to this school. No one seems to care about the education of the school. RRHS did not prepare me for college at all.

I can only name a few teachers who actual cared about their students performance, the vast majority did not care and were sloppy with their students acedemic progress. I was foolish enough to send ...  Read more

As a former RRHS graduate I can say that the River Rouge School District is one of the worst in the state. Too much focus is placed on athletics and not enough on academics. I wouldn't let me dog go to school in River Rouge. It's a smaller version of the Detroit Public School system.
