    This is a horrible school agree with the fact that the administration treats the students like inmates. Unfortunately the truth is probably many of them will be inmates. Drug and gang influence is high and caring from the staff is low. I regret sending my older children here one of the biggest regrets I have as a parent. My younger children will not go here when they are freshmen. Sports and EC's are of little importance to students coaches and administration. It seems like the staff is afraid or indifferent because nothing ever changes here. If you love your kids and can give them other options you would be wise to do so.

    My school is AMAZING! I love it I'm an honors student and I actually learn in the classes!

    This school is AMAZING! I am a freshman here and so far its a awesome experience! All my teachers are very helpful! Its a real fun school! Best school I've ever been to! )

    when I first attended RHS I didn't really like it but my junior year I started understanding what being a mustang was all ABOUT. I think the only reason im still at this school is because of the friendly teachers and the Music department yes their music department is the best in FSUSD the band rocks and their jazz choir is just wow well im about of the jazz choir. but I really love this school and people in it.

    I attended RHS as a freshman in the 2012-2013 school year as my own commitment to do so. I really enjoyed it here but unfortunately I don't enjoy many of my classes especially outside of class that I am being threatened and hated for no reason of what I did at first during lunch from a girl that talks to me and I talk politely for example and things don't go well. I attended leadership which is very positive with more citizenship and responsibility in this process. I am extremely upset in my academic literacy class that didn't went right for me to be successful because of bullying and distractions from most students. It doesn't matter about being an unsafe and dishonest person to anyone who doesn't deserve to be one. This is why things would be even more ugly. I would not recommend to attend this school in my opinion.

    Upon our first impression we believe communication is really lacking on behalf of the administration. We are trying to solve a problem for our son and are only incurring roadblocks.

  • (3 years ago)

    I graduated from RHS about 3 years and all I have to say is that they have awesome AP classes/AP teachers. Taking all AP classes was a challenge but passing them became an advantage in college especially for an Electrical Engineering major.

    I'm not sure were the person below obtained his/her figures but 200 out of 500 students not graduating does not sound accurate. Do you seriously think nothing would be done of 200 student didn't graduate? My daughter graduated 2 years ago from this school and did very well there. She is now beginning her third year at Cal State Long Beach and my son is a junior there now at Rodriguez. I have gone directly to the principal Amy Gillespe on a number of issues and she dealt with our issues in a very fair prompt professional manner. Being a principal is an extremely tough position and in my opinion she does an outstanding job and I'm glad we have her. At Rodriguez there are great teachers and some mediocre teachers but you are going to find that at all schools and the wrestling program is top notch!

    For starters nearly 200 of 500 SENIORS FAILED TO GRADUATE on June 3 2010. What does this tell you? The administration treats the students like inmates and sometimes uses scare tactics. Many of the kids complain about the lack of consistency and fairness regarding disciplinary action. Teachers are just like everywhere else some good some bad most scared to voice their opinion. Admittance to certain programs such as honors and advanced classes is not done fairly. The school has implemented some criteria that has not been approved by the state but is more their own agenda. The leadership is poor the principal is more the figurehead for the Vice Principal. The principal simply doesn t deal with important issues very well for example the racial incident a couple of years ago hasn t resulted in any real changes. Don t let the API scores fool you. Scores aren't everything!

    Disappointed with their 'Zero Tolerance' Policy. Nothing was done to protect my child from being bullied.

  • (5 years ago)

    Rodriguez goes above and beyond to make high school a welcoming place for all students. Students know they are the number one priority for all the staff.

    No efective discipline principal not attending parent voice mails.

    I disagree with the comments before I am a student a RHS and I think all the teachers have done a great job. I think the english department is trying very hard to bring themselves up but In my Opinion I think this is an excellent school with Great teacher. I have had great teachers the 3n years i been there.

    This school is really a great school all of the ratings that are on this website are probably from students or parents that will have problems at every school because of the way they act not the staff at RHS. They are all really nice and they do know how to teach. I went there for 4 years and I am now going to UC Berkeley so that proves that RHS is a good school and I am majoring in English so that shows that the problems that people had were not because of the teachers.

  • (6 years ago)

    I am pleased and very impressed with the staff at Rodriguez. Each teach plays a key roll in my childs learning and I am updated with concers and actions immediately. I must admit I had doubts about sending my son here but after the first week of school I knew that I had made the right choice.

    1/2 through first year with 2 @ RHS I've mixed thoughts. Agree the English classes are awful. At back to school night one of my kids' teachers commented that his goal for the year was to 'instill a life long love of reading' They can read garbage and love it. They haven't picked up one piece of lit this year!! My kid an avid reader was even discouraged from reading a literary masterpiece for free reading because the teacher thought it above the focus of the class. The other child I had to fight to get placed in Geom. even though Algebra was taken in 8th with Bs. I had to sign a waiver and this one is getting A in Geom! Counselors too worried about them getting A's and they can slide through with sub par classes. It will be discouraging in College. Looking for alternatives. Good spirit athletics extra-curriculars now.

    My child is only a freshmen but is doing great RHS! Maybe I haven't been around enough to agree with the previous comments but I do know as far as safety try putting your children in Armijo or Fairfield for a week and then let me know how un-safe you think they are at RHS.

    Being from this area I had high hopes for RHS when it was first built but now that it has been established for some time and the excitement has faded so has the quality of education. The English department is seriously lacking and when the school administration was confronted with this they refused to do anything about it or make any changes since some or most of the teachers have tenure. This is an automatic safety net for teachers who are not good teachers or are otherwise incapable of teaching. My family and I have considered moving outside the area to provide a better school/school district for our two RHS students. They deserve to have an opportunity to thrive is a conducive learning environment....as do all children.

    I m concerned with children s safety at the school. While the new principal works on improvement the district appears to have different vision. The staff is lacking in communication with the parents and they always act immature. Racial problems are prevalent and the district lacks the ability to use common sense when they appear. They do have a great sports department though. The English dept needs to be cleaned up as the teachers are very poor.

    I am an RHS alumni and I loved my 3 years there! It was a much better atmosphere than my first high school. There was so much diversity and young teachers who were learning with us. It was great!! Love you Mr Encalada!
