The amount of groups, activities, and diversity is what really stands out for the school, especially compared to schools in the area. We have groups such as FFA, National Honor Society, Student Council, D&D club, Scholastic Bowl, Gay-Straight Alliance, Interact. Then, there's also Dance, Color Guard, Marching Band, and so on. We have many sports: Cross Country, Volleyball, Basketball, Football, Track and Field, Softball, Baseball, Wrestling, and others. I take part in a lot of those including leadership positions. I am Historian for NHS, Drumline and Front Ensemble Section Leader for Band, and a Captain for Cross Country and Track. The diversity is amazing as there is a mix of a lot of LGBTQ+ and straight people, and ethnic backgrounds of African/White/Mixed/Asian/Mexican Americans. The thing that needs more focus in our school is behavior issues(like fights), more opportunities in AP classes, and strive to have education be the main focus over sports(students first, athletes second).

It's a rather small school which gives more time for teacher student interactions. If teachers are unavailable we have sophomore to senior mentors who try and help the freshman adjust to the school and even help with their grades and finding classes. The school is constantly changing. There's a new PE dress policy which leaves more freedom to the students to dress for PE and they're even contemplating open campus lunch! However, with such a small school there's a lot of fights that break out, a ton of gossip, lots of drama, and tons of bullies and not many people stick up for others, so I'd love to see that changed as well as the school lunch.
Rantoul Township High School is one of the best schools in the area. There are many choices for classes from art classes to child care & home ec classes to zoology and advanced science classes. The administration is very invested in each student so that they can achieve the best they can. The teachers care about the students and help then to become the best they can be. There is also a diverse student body including international study abroad students. RTHS helps its students prepare for college and beyond. The school also have a very active music program which includes jazz band, concert band, marching band, concert choir, women's chorale, madrigals, and show choir. The school also has an active sports program for both boys and girls which includes football, basketball, wrestling, golf, soccer, weight lifting, baseball and track. For a small town school this is one of the best in the area.
