I've attended Rock Hill Schools since I was 4. The teachers who teach in Rock Hill are the absolute best. They're not only a teachers but they are a friend, mentor, and shoulder to lean on. All my teachers I've had I had a great bond with. The curriculum we learn in Rock Hill is great. Everything I've learned has connected with another class or helped me in life. Rock Hill School overall are pretty amazing. Some things I'd like to see change are more updated equipment. In my generation technology is what's commonly used. Our schools has the oldest equipments and the cause so much trouble. Our boards go completely out and our laptops crash constantly. I would also like to see the safety concerns change. The elementary school near my house has a gate but doesn't wrap around the back. Kids run back there all the time with no supervision. Lastly, I would like more mental health help for students. So many students stress about school and grades that it affects their mental.

K-12 I have attended Rock Hill School District 3. I would have to say my experience in school has been so much fun. I loved every second of it. Teachers are amazing. Most teachers are concerned with your mental and physical well being and making sure you understand. I would have to say with not having as much money as surrounding districts, our schools are nicely put together and clean and organized. Reorganization of art by the District its something i always strive to achieve. Rock Hill Schools prepared me to start College of Charleston next year.
Rock Hill High School is a school that I hated and also loved at the same time. Personally I loved some of my teachers mainly those in the IB program. My teachers were funny, smart, and helpful. Yet overall what I hated about Rock Hill High School was the lack of spirit and sometimes just administration's rules. It always felt like other schools had more fun with pep rallies, spirit weeks, and just school events overall. To be honest the Rock Hill Schools in general feel very unfair and divided. All three schools in the district have very differing characteristics, but in my personal experience it felt like Rock Hill High School was the worst. Northwestern had better programs, more supportive staff, and just better in school spirit. South Point also got great equipment for their news programs, new state of the art classroom, and better theater budget. In summary, I loved my experience at Rock Hill High School but when compared to the other schools it feels sub par.
