I have 2 children here and both feel safe and are challenged academically. The school is small enough that administration knows the students and who needs extra attention. They keep an eye on what’s happening. The terrible incident of last year had more to do with kids making bad decisions— and the school responded immediately and appropriately. School spirit is strong-for many different activities-music and art programs are good and there are many student clubs. The IB program is great too.

RHS is a community school and is appears to be good for those kids who have been together for many years. My child, who transferred into the community in 8th grade (at the feeder middle school) then attended RHS in 9th grade had an extremely difficult transition to fit in socially. She was also consistently targeted/bullied by the same group of kids. The administrators were lax in their responsiveness. Fortunately, she had two attentive teachers who helped her through the challenging social environment. My daughter was in all honors classes at RHS. Her teachers were very good and the curriculum posed constructive challenges. We moved at the end of the school year so she no longer attends RHS.

I find one of the best aspects of Rockville HS is its small size. The faculty know all the students and the students all know each other. Most of the teachers have been good or great and all of the faculty and staff are really interested in the kids. The whole school is a close knit community. There are a number of great academic programs including the IB program, engineering program, and journalism program along with a computer science curriculum. There are a lot of extracurricular activities so most students are involved in at least one activity and many are involved in multiple clubs or sports, which adds to the overall involved community feel. I am really glad for my children to be a part of such a great school.

Academically the school offers all the challenges any bright kid could ask for. Rockville has an IB program, an Engineering program, a Journalism program and Advanced Placement programs. While Rockville is large enough to offer every type of opportunity for education or extra-curricular activity it is not so large that there is not room for everyone who wants to participate. The school spirit is terrific. It is a small town atmosphere in an urban world. All the kids know each other. All types are accepted for who they are. The level of achievement is impressive. The student run school newspaper is a consistent national award winner (including this year) and was the national paper of the year in 2010. In 2010 our It's Academic team won the Washington DC Metro Area & Regional Championship. Last year Rockville produced a Maryland state swimming champion, an All-American Lacrosse player, a MD state record breaking football quarterback, a division winning basketball team and a host of students earning college scholarship offers. Those not participating in the sports form the rabid student cheering section they call The Inferno . They enjoy their school! Couldn't ask for more!

The quality of education varies a lot at this school. The mayority of teachers at this school have enough skills to teach adequately. However, there are some that lack of the sufficient skills to teach. There are two math teachers that cause a lot of complaints. The first one cannot make sure that students focus on the class and the second one does not know how to explain the topics. Almost all of the students at a math class failed the test. One of the best things about this school is that students with disabilities are integrated into regular classes. For example, some classrooms have interpreters for deaf students.
