I really think Rushford-Peterson is a great school. The teachers are great and love to see students learning. There are few clubs but the clubs at this school are filled with people that enjoy the subject. I have been apart of the Speech team for three years. Since going Speech have made lots of friends and the confidence to speak in front of people. I would not have joined if I didn’t have a great speech coach that helped me stay in it though out the years. All the staff members at Rushford-Peterson do what they can to help students understand the subject they are in and are willing to take time to step you through what you don’t understand
I am a senior at Rushford Peterson High School. I am very fond of the people here. Coming from a small town, everyone knows everybody. This is nice when it comes to the teachers, as one can establish a personal relationship with them. The student groups all intertwine very well. Everyone pretty much has the same background both family wise and ethnicity wise. This makes certain worldly conversations difficult since there is a lack of diverse opinion. A new school was recently built that replaces the 110 year-old previous building. The design of the new building is very open as the main source of light is natural light. This is to promote a learning environment and help keep the students awake and engaged.
