Republic High School Reviews
Rating 3.58 out of 5 212 reviews
Republic has such a supportive staff and is apart of a supportive community that cares about the quality of education and programs offered at the school. They offer several programs like NHS, Jrotc, FCCLA, FBLA, DECA, FFA, and many more. Things such as state and college entrance exams can be stressful but the school offers ACT prep after school to help students prepare and do their best. They additionally offer several advanced and honors courses and dual credit courses with local universities to help students save money before they head to college. The school has invited many college representatives to help deliver information to students and support them in applying to colleges. Overall, the school cares about student success and preparation for their future in whatever career that may be. Not even the pandemic could stop this work. The district created a functioning and safe environment to bring back all of our students in person and have managed to stay in session all year long!
Many bad experiences with coaches and teachers. Most of which we ignored. But there are so many good coaches and teachers as well.
Republic High School offers great opportunities for students with different interests to feel involved.
I absolutely loved attending Republic schools all through my life, but my high school experience was nothing short of a dream. I have never felt so welcomed by my teachers and the staff and that's such an incredible feeling. School should be an enjoyable environment that makes it easier for students to learn and Republic High School does just that. They offer such a diverse election of learning experiences and many include being hands on. I have been a part of their Agriculture program going on my fourth year and it has taught me so much and allowed me to be very hands on. In my four years in the program I have helped build a farm their with pigs, chickens, and cattle. It's such a beautiful experience to be able to do that in a high school, especially because that's what I want to do in life. Republic High School is an overall amazing campus where you are sure to be greeted with a smile and warm welcome. I am so lucky to have attended RHS and am sad my time their is almost over.
The Republic High school administrators really focus on sports when I believe the focus needs to shifted more towards academics. The school lacked in college readiness also.
I loved all of my teachers at republic high school and also the adminstration staff. I felt like they generally cared about me and my education throughout my whole time there. I also felt like the counselors did everything they could to help me get into whatever collage I wanted to go to.
Though there are many wonderful teachers at Republic, this is a district that overworks its staff under the premise of "WINning" the day. There is a clear social hierarchy at this school with those who have connections within the district, however, in my experience, this is simply how smaller towns are. Republic High School is overall decent, perhaps slightly above average because of its wonderful teachers.
I would like to see the Fine Arts programs to be more appreciated. Also the fact, that the band got stuck in the gym because someone doesn’t know how to share. It’s ridiculous that we have a giant school but the band is stuck in the gym and the jazz band is struck in the choir room.
I liked the school's commitment to students and their learning. The overall push for curriculum and even strong extracurriculars and support for sports and clubs.
For the most part, I felt like all of the teachers at this school really cared for each student. I always enjoyed going to school, and I feel like not many schools can do that for their students.
It's a very involved school. The teachers and principles can be seen every day either in the hallway or with a class. Very invested in sports and Extracurricular activities. They care about the arts. Every student has a say in things, and what they want. It likes to show pride in everything and care for the safety of the students first. It's a school that likes to expand into new things like technology and science.
The experience I have had while in Republic High School has been interesting. The food is edible, the people are wildly obscure, and the classes are very educational. I am not a popular student at my school but it is easy to say I am not unpopular. There are good and bad things about my school. Our football team is terrible, the marching band is finaominal, the choir is great, the theater program is tremendous, the JROTC program is spectacular, the food (like I said before) is edible.
Republic is a very good school. I have always felt welcome to go there. However, they spend too much time appreciating the football team and not awarding or recognizing other sports that are good or the academic achievements that people have received.
Not many AP classes, but the school has many good classes that are non-AP and have good teachers as well.
It's a really nice high school that gives students opportunities to succeed in life. It's gives opportunities in all life choices, like if you wanted to choose a college military, or workforce path it's got the people and resources for you to succeed. I've spent 3 years there now and they have wonderful staff who really do care about there students.
The administration cares more about getting more funding from the State than the actual students. There are many attendance initiatives that I find unfair to many students. For example, students may be exempt from finals if you have a B or higher in the class, no serious disciplinary issues, and missed 2 days or less of the class. While I support schools trying to support going to school, this is unfair to students who simply can't go school, my freshman year I had to take finals because I was sick for 3 days, and I was punished for being sick. I find that unfair.
I like the choices I have to take the classes I want. As a senior, I am able to skip the first hour and not have a class until the second hour. I like that I am trusted to go to classes and I'm not micro-managed by faculty or staff at RHS. They are involved when they need to be but let us as students make choices for ourselves and ask for help when we think we need it.
