    My school is okay. NOT handicap accessible If in a manual wheel chair. The school spend money on things like golf carts(because the principals are to lazy to walk around) and the athletic department when we need more books/new books new computers new elevators AND A LOT MORE. The teachers are pretty good. The Principals are decent. The counselors DON'T know how to do their jobs. If youre considering a rock hill school South Points the worst. Northwestern is the best. Rock hill was the school I chose. I am no longer able to traverse the school therefore I am on homebound permanently The school is good at making accomendations for students that need a 504 or IEP. Good Luck!

    The policy changes implemented this year have been extremely positive. Previous reviews mentioned IDs and dress code which are district policies not those of the individual schools. Overall RHHS has a caring environment with teachers striving for academic excellence from students.

    I am proud to be a RHHS teacher. We have great kids committed teachers and administrators who care about the kids. I teach social studies and am proud to present challenging lessons that are standards-based (with real world application!) on a daily basis. Rock Hill High School is a great place to learn and thrive!

    I really dislike RHHS i agree they are very picky about stupid stuff like the ids and lunch and tardys the school is pretty big and to many kids 6 mins is not enough to get to class on time I refraise that i HATE RHHS

    Rock Hill High School was overcrowded and they pay too much attention to their atheletic department rather than their academics. The students their are overly disciplined on small issues like wearing the id cards at all times.

    School is extremely overcrowded. when it comes down to lunch times for these kids they wait forever in line and are left with only a few minutes to actually eat. I do believe that the teachers do an okay job but when they are forced to teach as many children as they have in one class there is not much time for individual attention. Their school policies are extremely stiff. They have kids tucking in their shirts they look terrible this way. Cell phone usage during school is not accepted or the phone will be taken away for over a week and they make the parent come get it.

    The school mainly focuses on testing and discipline and sports. Yet there are some teachers who really care about the students and what they are doing. I would like the school to be more supportive about all clubs.

    RHHS is a pretty good school but they are way to picky about little discipline problems like ID's and dress code than stuff like drugs and violence.

    I am a student at Rock Hill High School and I enjoy the atmosphere of the classes and the approach the teachers take to make sure we learn the requierd matrial. Compared to other schools I have attended Rock Hill is much more upkept and cared for. If I had the chance to move schools I would not. I also find that the way cetian situations are handled well and in a propper manner.

    I visited RHHS with my daughter and I am astounded with the friendliness and pride of the students. The principal takes exceptional care of the school and the students take pride in it. The staff is very helpful and has taught my daughter many useful things. The students hardly have any clicks and my daughter feels very at home there. The students are allowed to express themselves which will be very useful in life. The kids at RHHS are wonderful and I think that has a lot to do with the guidance of the staff and administration. I would recommend this school over any other.

    I work at this school and am appalled at the lack of control the teachers have in the classrooms. Many teachers use the same street language as the students. The particular class I am in every day is a non-learning environment. The teacher spends too much time coddling the students and hardly any time teaching them. The teacher has shown 4 non-subject related movies in the last 4 weeks. The students are very disrespectful and the teacher shows a great deal of favoritism. My daughter is supposed to be coming to this school next year but I have opted to homeschool after I saw the environment of non-learning and direspect some of these teachers promote.
