Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Senior High School Reviews

My experiences at Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Senior High School isn't so fascinating to hear. It's just like every other school out there. You come in students who want to go back home, teachers lecturing students, and receiving homework on a day to day bases. So it's really not that interesting, but I got to admit the activities that the school has won't disappoint you at all. It's a very small school but with lots of different clubs, sports, and many different types of classes to take. Now you must have 22 high school credits to graduate with a high school diploma. I already have my credits but I'm just taking the required classes in order to graduate, which isn't so bad. Now I play 4 sports a year, one in the fall, two in the winter, and one in the spring. Not only that I have to balance it out because I also work too. But besides that, I got to say I enjoy the school it's just the students in the school that make it awful really.

RCS is very interesting to say the least.The rating of the teachers really do depend on which teacher it is. Some are great, you can tell that they enjoy their job and students, where some only seemed to be annoyed by their job. The most annoying issue with some teachers is that they tend to rant on topics with have nothing to do with the class, things like chocolate sculptures and how car payments killing the youth of america.It also seems that teachers only care about having you pass the year, not going to college. As for Academics, there are so many different classes. However, the classes also depend on the teachers.The class isn't going to go far if all you're doing nothing but thinking about chocolate darth vader right? There a kinds of clubs within the school. There Ten as of now.
I could probably write a full length paper on RCS, and honestly i would if you asked me. It's nothing special and nothing horrible either, landing somewhere in between. An average high school.
This is a small town high school. Although it is a good school, i feel it does not prepare you for college. Also, there could be more focus on academics rather than sports.
