    "The reason this school is only rated a "5" is probably because, until this year, it has only served 10th through 12th grades. The Algebra I EOC is a major component of the scoring system. Most Rock Bridge students complete Algebra I in middle school. Therefore the only students taking Algebra I at Rock Bridge are those who do not perform well in math. For this reason, the school's Algebra EOC scores are lower than average which brings down the school's ranking. When you compare ACT and SAT scores, Rock Bridge consistently scores higher than state and national averages. This is a very good school."

    "Rock Bridge Senior High School Home of the Bruins. Academics, sports, planetarium shows and other events make this the best school that I have attended and still go to these events. Ravi Sehgal Glad to be an RBHS alumni"

    "As an RB student I had math with Ms. Mast for pre-calc and calc BC. Now that I've finished college, I can appreciate how excellent my math classes were. Ms. Mast's way of structuring curriculum gave me an extremely solid conceptual understanding of all the formulas and intricacies of calc: I easily scored 5 on the AP BC test, and scored the highest on a multivariate calc-for-engineering final as the only non-engineer -- and only girl -- on a class I took as a Freshman at USC.) It was also fun and featured group collaboration. I also took AP Bio with Mrs. Pickett, got a five, and felt INCREDIBLY well-prepared. I took AP Langauge Comp and AP World and Euro, got 5s on all and felt like these courses amounted to 3 years of top-rate, free SAT reading comprehension tutoring. I completely credit Ms. Dix's instruction in Language Comp with giving me the tools to excel on the SAT and in college honors and grad-level courses. Mr. Graham of AP World also prepared me for the critical analysis vital for success later on. At least 8 years ago, when I was in school here, AP courses at Rock Bridge offered excellent academic preparation. RB did not offer AP or level 5 French when I was there."

    "The math and foreign language departments are not up to par and by departments I mean the teaching itself is not very good at all. It is well know that RB and Columbia have always struggled in math and until they bring in good, caring math teachers that really know how to teach and reach youth, it will never improve. And it would help to have foreign language teachers that can understand English."

    "I don't know why on Earth we would only be ranked 5 out of 10. In fact, we were listed as one of the top 10 high schools in Missouri last year (#8). The motto is "freedom with responsibility" which ensures that good students are rewarded, and troubled students get the help they need. Students get great test scores- in fact, Rock Bridge sent several students to Harvard last year. Nearly every AP class is offered, as well as many honors options. Sports teams perform great- in my three years here we've won at least 3 state championships every year. Most students have money, which can be both good and bad. It ensures we have a lot of "good kids", whose parents are willing to get involved. Don't be surprised though if you pull up in student parking and see some hummers, range rovers, and brand new cars sitting next to a smattering of clunkers. Overall, few would deny that out of the three high schools in columbia, Rock Bridge is the one that everyone wants their kids in."
