My experience with Rome City Schools has been awesome!! I love the fact that the community supports the schools as far as the sports and academics!! I love the the tradition that this city has!Also the fact that they support the children and the schools! I love Rome high school. I’m happy that my family sacrificed staying in this city, just so I could have the opportunity to graduate from Rome High! My overall experience has been wonderful! I’ve had The opportunity and pleasure to serve in the band, colorguard, chorus, and National honor society! I’ve also had the opportunity to do duel enrollment for some classes! So I will be starting college with a head start!

I have lived in Rome, Georgia for almost 6 years now. Before I moved here I didn't have many friends. However, transitioning into my new school here was very smooth and exciting. All of my teachers through the past 6 years have been awesome. I've made great friends and mentors who have helped me through tough situations. Of course, no school is perfect but I could not even imagine going to a better high school then Rome High.
I enjoy the teachers around Rome High School. I also enjoyed how much school spirit that is provided at this school. As a cross-country and track runner and fellow high school football fan, I enjoy showing support for my school. People around the school actually encourage to show your school spirit. The teachers really help me prepare for tests and for college. The teachers that I have also do one-on-one studies to help us prepare for an upcoming test or quiz to help me better understand the materials. I am enjoying my experience as a senior and hope that others think so too.
