    Administration faculty & staff treat all students with respect and love. The professional manor of each individual makes RHS the safe well respected school it is known for. I am very proud to say I graduated from RHS and currently have two children there.

    I go to this school right now I am in 11th grade now. I have gone here since my 9th grade year and I really like it.

    Both myself and my husband graduated from RHS. We have 1 daughter graduated and 1 daughter still attending RHS. When purchasing our second home neither myself my husband or our girls would have considered moving from RHS school district. Great school/Staff! and Great Parents!
