I think they need better math teachers and better leaders. A lot of the staff at Rosman High School are biased towards the athletes. The athletes are always favored in the classroom and always get away with breaking the rules. It is not fair and it should not be tolerated. The dress code is not enforced on the athletes and it is not acceptable.

I like the teachers and most of the people but having to deal with old, out-dated rules and prejudices is somewhat of a hassle.
I as a senior, have really enjoyed growing up and attending this school system. Most of all the teachers show a lot of heart, and actually care for their students. Whether it be stay after school and help teach you extra, and they just explain things very well in class.
