    This school is very good. I felt that my child received an excellent education. The curriculum is rigorous and prepares students for college.

    The education received by all four of my children has been above expectation. Thanks to the caring staff for all they have been and done.

    I attended RCHS from 98-01. Overall RCHS has a great academic record turning out some very good students. One should realize however that a district and school that small provides few opportunities to excel outside of the community. Having lived there for over 18 years there have been only a couple of students from each class to really excel post-graduation. Opportunities for athletc and academic acknowlegement is slim when compared to bigger schools and cities. All in all students have the opportunity for a great education. On a side note it should be known that the area has been battling some very serious drug issues throughout the school and community.

    I attended Reed-Custer from K-11 and there's only one good thing that this school has and that's money. I did continue on with my education no thanks to this school considering the assistant principal told me to just quit. When I began college I was put in the low english and math classes because I had not been taught properly in high school. This is the worst school you could put your child in please do not make the same mistake my parents did.

    This was a great school. Just big enough to not feel that you were being singled out and just small enough to be a part of any crowd that you wanted.
