    "RHS has truely come a long way. I have two daughters who have attended the school. One graduated last year another this year 09. When Ms Johnson came out of retirement and cleaned up the school I knew we made the right choice. However when she left I had some concerns. Along comes Mr Jenkins (a Mr Joe Clark) who is a zero tolerance man. Thank you Mr Jenkins for setting a high standard that you and your staff has been truely living by. I would also like to thank two of your staff members personally for being great teachers. Mrs Montgomery and Mr Dilworth you have help my daughter stay focus and you challeged her to think out side of the box. It truely takes a villiage to raise a child thanks for the great job. I know La'chell whould say the same if she knew I was posting this."

    "I am a studen that goes to RHS and for me this wa a huge mistake. They set the rules down and guess what no one takes it seriously. All the kids wear there hoodies when they are not suppose to and the staff doesnt even care. There are fights all the time and when it breaks out in the hall ways the kids will rush out of the classrooms to watch it DURING CLASS. To me this school is a disapointment there is basically no learning and for me a student look forward to going to college this is not the right school. They tell you no cell phones and all the kids bring them in some how through the security and sometimes the security will see it and wont care. For anybody that is looking into this school if i was in your shoes I wouldnt go."

    "Yes, there are problems at this school. What school in the district doesn't have problems. It is not the fault of the teachers. The teaching staff and support staff do everything but do back flips to educate the children that are fortunate enough to attend RHS. It's not the fault of the parents, either. Whose fault is it, you ask? Try asking your local government officials. Ask President Bush. Every last bit of wrong is laid upon the working staff at a school. The responsibility is governments. Ask your government and local officials to cut class sizes, add more hands-on academics, stop the red-tape on class trips. Stop blaming the kids, parents and most certainly the teachers."
