    "This is a great school. Teachers are fair. Math departments and social science is something to be proud of here. This school, though, has its dirty secrets. For one, the principle doesn't take any responsibility and doesnt follow the rule of, 'dont judge a book by its cover '. He's not one to hold grudges but as soon as something goes on in the halls,up stairs, he wont be afraid totake the the whole upstairs into detention or suspension. I personally think he does'nt know what he's doing. I say that if we got a principle who actually cares about wat goes on in school and doesn'nt hide behind his desk, the students, staff and school would be happier. Thats not to say the staff or administration is bad. V.P does exellent work and staff and students are great. Year 2010"

    "I believe since there is new leadership in the school you can see a very obvious transition in the culture of the school. My child is now a senior and I can honestly say that the assistant principal has made RHS a safe and accountable school. His desire to truly care about kids has enabled the school to be one of the best in NM. My child plays sports but is also very involved with academics. I am very pleased with RHS."

    "You have to go to a good quality public high school in another state to realize how substandard the academics are in Ruidsoso High School. I am not kidding when I say that it has the educational equivalency of an ok middle school elsewhere. I attended both Ruidoso High School and a High school in Colorado. Its shocking."

    "RHS is not the best high school in New Mexico, I will be the first one to say that. Some high schools like Albuquerque Academy and La Cueva have higher marks academically. You also have schools, even rival class 3A schools like Lovington and Portales have more consistent state appearances in sports. However, Ruidoso High School is still one of the finest high schools in the state. The English Department is one of the top five, if not the best as far as teachers Freshman through Senior grades, that consistently push their students to their absolute highest potential. I have never seen a school that cares so much about its students and although there are fights, that happens all the time in high schools throughout the nation. Ruidoso should be happy about its high school and for the most part, the community supports it well. Shane Hoffman Graduating Senior 2006"

    "Ruidoso High School needs the community to set in and actually examine what happens within the high school. The school is riddled with violence that is not dealt with. My child was brutally beaten up on campus and the principal and assistant principal did nothing but try to hide the incident. Ask your own child how safe they really feel at RHS!"
