I attended Ruston High School. This school provided me this a quality education that I feel confident that I am well prepared to further at college. The teachers were all wonderful; they were willing to help me do my best to succeed and still push me to my limits. I cultivated study skills and learned how to work hard under pressure. I am planning on going into the medical field so this was a huge aid in my future career.
Ruston High School provides strong academic programs including DUAL enrollment classes which I took advantage of during my Junior and Senior years. My school also has successful sports programs. I was a starter on our varsity football team for three years. RHS has a wide variety of clubs as well.
