The people and staff are quite helpful once you get to know them. However, they can sometimes be a bit difficult and confusing to deal as they often make questionable decisions. Furthermore, it can be hard to receive help when needed if you are new or not that well-known. They may have some problems, but the district isn't so bad: they can be resourceful once they get to know you which will be rather quick due to our small area and the schools give off a special atmosphere towards it's students and staff.

As a student in River Rouge High School I'll admit to say I enjoy the faculty. They work with each student and give students chances to fix their grades. I would like to see a change in the school's behavior. At times the student's behavior can become a handful. Overall the school does have a lot of pride in what they accomplished over the years and it can be a good atmosphere to around.
River Rouge High School different feel like a school it felt like home. The teachers treat you like family. When we had basketball games everyone came out and supported. That school supports you with whatever decisions you make. I wish I honestly went to River Rouge my whole high school journey it was a fun journey. If I could I would do it all over again I would.
