I love the RCS system! I feel everyone in the system goes over and beyond to meet the needs of every single student! The academic side of RCS has so many wonderful opportunities. Outside of academics, our system has many awesome things such as top notch sports facilities, rocketry and robotics teams and many career tech opportunities. I am thankful to be a part of the faculty and staff at RCS.

It was great the first two years I was there. Then, they got new administration.
The last two years of my high school experience were not that great. The new administration cares too much about sports instead of academics. They pride themselves on making the school "college ready" while they do not prepare us well at all. They seem to care more about moving up in their own positions than the students' well-being. They hire administration that does not have enough experience to be in their positions. The teachers are great but discouraged because of all the extra work that administration makes them do. Many of the better teachers are leaving to go to different schools.
I attended Russellville City Schools from K-12, and I would not change it for anything. I always had the most wonderful teachers. As I got older, I started suffering from mental illness. If it wasn’t for extra curricular activities, such as JROTC and matching band, I might not be here today. My teachers were a concrete support system that helped me become the woman I am today.
