    "I absolutely love going to RHS. I had the opportunity to go to LHS to participate in the IB program, but I chose Rouse instead, and I'm so glad I did! The teachers are amazing, the extracurriculars are challenging and varied, and the academics (at least as an AP student) involve the students (lots of learning by doing). Plus, the band and student council are some of the best in the state! Go Raiders!"

    "Nothing but love for Rouse. Go Raiders..... I have 2 daughters. 1 graduated 2013 and the other is a Junior. They both love the school as well as I commend the staff with their involvement with the students. I can not say enough positive things about them. The AP classes are exceptional and if you can get your child in those classes, it will be well worth it."

    "This is a typical public high school in a very large district. I suggest AP courses for your child to get the best education possible at this school. One negative I have experienced is that the football coaches are bullies and play favorites. It's sad that a district that touts a zero tolerance policy with bullying employs coaches that demean the players (it's not acceptable just because it's football). I would speak up directly if I knew my son wouldn't suffer punishment for honest feedback from concerned parents. It's time all teachers and coaches treat students with dignity and practice what they teach (no bullying)."

    "As a parent of a freshman & sophomore at Rouse, and recently relocating from the midwest where we had less than desirable schools, I can honestly say that Rouse has been everything we hoped it would be. The volleyball coach at Rouse took my daughter under his wing knowing she was coming in from 1200 mi. away, and accepted her as a manager because he knew how hard it would be for a teen girl to acclimate to a new school. What a blessing! I am eternally grateful for Coach Thompson's act of kindness. My daughter came out of her reclusive, shy shell following the move, and an ugly divorce, and is now a bouncing, bubbly, student with many friends. Her grades are good & she is thriving. My freshman son, has better grades than he ever has, many friends, and a lot of activities to keep him busy. The teachers here actually care. They offer open tutorials before & after school, for any student needing help. Standards are high. Anything below a 70% is failing..as it should be. If you do the work, if you have drive, the teachers will do everything to help you pass the class. Communication is great in every aspect. Attendance and grades. We never wonder what is going on with our children."

    "My daughter is a senior at Rouse and she loves it. As a parent, I've always found each of her teachers very approachable. There has never been a time that I was unable either thru e-mail or phone to contact any teacher to discuss an issue I might have. Being California transplants, I've found the TX curriculum to be both challenging and exciting for my child. I Love Rouse and it's teachers, yet I do have one complaint. My student has had (unfortuneatley) 3 coaches as teachers in her 4 years here. They have been awful! Not knowledgeable at all on the subjects they teach,and prone to give athletes more help and attn. Thank goodness they don't teach any core subjects. As well as my student is liked and as well as she does in ALL her other classes,she struggled to have questions answered by these coaches. For this I feel they should spend more time coaching our football players (we certainly need it with our awful season last year and this year not looking much better)and stay out academia! We should pay our curriculum teachers more and get rid of,oh let's say 3 or 4 coaches. Spend the money where it will help our kids academically! Go Rouse Teachers, I think you're fabulous!"
