I am a current alum of Rice Consolidated Independent School District. They did not prepare me well at all for college. The academics are very poor there. My overall experience was great because my friends of course. My principal, vice principle, and counselor were a huge help in getting us to college. With the application progress and all the files needed to apply for college. But the academics and sports side of Rice will keep failing till a change is made to the way things are done there.

Rice highschool is alright for a school in the "countryside" its not very good at keeping its principals and teachers for more than a year but it does teach what you need to know. Also, I feel as in the school mostly focuses on the sports than any other academic subject that the school has to offer as in Art, Band, and NHS, etc usually the clubs have to wait weeks for their fundings to be approved but overall the teachers are very helpful and I can tell they want us to do better.
Rice High School has treated me well, as I have been here for two years I feel that I’ve learned a lot and gained a lot of friends through this school. I enjoy coming to school to learn and be in the environment.
