Reservoir High School is a very diverse school with people of different ethnicity and backgrounds. The school, in general, is very welcoming to all students. It provides many resources for students such as Independent Research, ARL, JumpStart/Dual Enrollment classes at Howard Community College. The school also provides many G/T (Gifted and Talent) and AP (Advanced Placement) classes. It ensures that every student has equal access to such resources. Teachers and Counselors always wish the best upon their students and guide them toward the path that they wish to pursue. One downside of Reservoir High School is the food. For me, the food at RHS is not the best and very unhealthy. But if you usually bring lunch to school, it shouldn't be a problem. Although there are things that RHS can improve on, it still a school that I believe has the resources and opportunities that can create successful students.

There’s a lot of diversity in the school than in other schools in Howard County. In terms of the administration, the school can do a better job in handling the activities and issues that occur in school. There have been incidents where administrators have acted harshly and a bit offensive towards students for the way they dress. Also with the issue of closing down many bathrooms and having the door open was a big issue that could have been handled better. The school is relatively clean, custodians do their job well. There are many clubs, students just have to find the right one and get involved. In terms of academics, there are many good teachers, they try to help you but the student must have the initiative to ask. For college readiness, the school could work on informing students more about what’s coming after graduation. There are many terms and new responsibilities that would have been nice to know more about before graduating. Overall a good school.
Throughout my four years attending Reservoir High School, I’ve enjoyed the diversity and education. At Reservoir, I’m blessed to have such an experience where I can learn from other cultures. I’ve enjoyed the range of courses that we can enroll in. For example, in 11th grade year I had the opportunity to talks African American History which was very interesting. However, there are some negatives about Reservoir High School. In the past four years we’ve been through two to three suicides. This negatively impacted the school, everyone had lost a friend, peer, and a student. The school does post suicide hotlines throughout the school and provide announcements. Although, it doesn’t feel genuine, and isn’t effective. I feel like the school could take more action. Maybe we could have more one-on-one counselor meetings or more wellness check ups for all students.
