The teachers are great at what they do, the campus is beautiful and so open, and the activities offered are so much fun and fantastic! ASB is so creative and wonderful at what they do. Plus, RSM has the #1 morning broadcasting show in the district! The teachers have been teaching at the school (for the most part) for years, and they DEFINATELY know what they're doing. The hallways are all outdoors, as is the cafeteria, so everyone has pleenty of space and feels less stressed and cramped. Overall it's a FANTASTIC school! I feel like I'm learning so much, and I know I've made SO many new friends.

I really enjoyed going to RSM. The school campus is large and there are a lot of things to take part in. The elective choices are extensive too - with a lot of choices. There is a very large track for running as well as a lot of basketball hoops too - including a gym. Academically, there are a lot of bright students.
My daughter has had some very poor teachers this year. The elective choices are poor. Lots of kids vape and drink. Bikes get stolen. Bullying occurs. I would stay away from this school if possible.
