I love that my school is diverse. Our teachers are amazing and professional.
Our classes are challenging! Rancho offers many AP classes to choose from. We are being well prepared for college and life. We have wonderful extracurricular activities to participate in, like Colorguard and Band. Our principal is like no other. He loves his job and his students!

Rancho Cucamonga High school was pretty amazing. I had more great, caring, and inspirational teachers than I had terrible, unorganized, and boring; which is definitely not a common narrative among students in high school. My school was very active in the sports community and won many championships across all sports all team levels and gendered as well as co-ed teams. RCHS was know for its incredible dance team , Leadership(ASB and SA) , and football teams. I was apart of the Waterpolo, swim, and dive teams at Rancho which definitely kept me out of a lot of trouble and in very great shape. My senior year my class started the Go green!Clean engineering club on campus and we participated in the H2AC race. It was a great experience that really shaped my ways of thinking about zero emissions and treating the environment with care, not polluting it as well as makes me question the things I'm using and what my carbon emissions are.
Rancho Cucamonga High School is somewhere I've really enjoyed being for the past four years. The staff is very encouraging to us students, and ensure we are on a proper track to success. There is no discrimination, and the campus is very diverse. The opportunities at RCHS are almost endless!
