This school could have more rules to make sure students have good behavior. The security guards don't do their job. They flirt and get into a confrontation with students. The school has yet to do anything with the seniors. They have not gone on trips or had any activities catered to them. This school needs a better structure so that students can feel safe. The kids don't feel safe because of the fights and threats that have been happening in the school. This school needs to do better especially since it is in a suburban area.
What I liked about rich south was that everyone was not in your face about everything. They made sure you knew the important information, but we’re not overbearing. They allowed students to be independent. What I disliked about the school is that at times it came off as disorganized.
It's a very average school, nothing special about it. Our sports teams are good and is one of the most exciting things about attending Rich South. As for our academics, we could do a lot better. The lack of motivation is visibly shown and more than half of the school doesn't care about anything. It's very hard to learn in that kind of environment & retain the information you learn.
The school is fun and very serious about their academics. Furthermore, the school is well diverse and appreciates all culture, this show how much of a star they on.
My senior year at Rich South has been great so far. The teachers are amazing and nice to work with, the students are helpful and easy to get along with, and there are many sports and activities to participate in as well!
Rich South prepares me for life after high school. I learned a lot about myself, my strengths and weaknesses, my goals in life, and even more from this school. I also learned what real friendship and love means.
My experience at Rich South was very unique. During my four years their , I participated in many sports such as soccer , football , and basketball. It allowed me to build connections with many of the students and staff throughout the school , which was great. It made my overall experience better . I looked forward to coming to school everyday to see my peers and just spread positivity. By taking part in extracurricular activities I also learned to manage my time correctly for college . That played a major part in my transitioning .
I graduated from rich south 3 years ago. This was a great school. The staff at rich south were awesome. Unfortunately up till date, it is not longer called rich south house school. It will now be named rich township h.s.
The school has god potential and is run by a district and admin team that try their hardest to keep rowdy kids in line. I just so happened to be apart of an interesting class that always made sure something was going on.
I'd like there to be more evaluations in teachers, because they are certainly not the best. I am worried about the future of the students' education knowing that most of the teachers do the bare minimum to teach the students. We are supposed to be getting prepared for the SAT but I feel like we are nowhere near ready for this test.
It was an amazing school when you learn about how many opportunities you have for success. They were willing to help you when you were down and bring you up from the hardest of times. The teachers provide welcoming arms and even get to know you on a personal level, This school aims to bring out futures in any students who enroll here, and It strives and prides them to become STARS.
My time as a student at Rich South is a time I will always love. As a freshman, I walked in the school as the new girl because I never went to elementary or middle school with the kids in my class. Although I was the new girl I connected with people fast. I went out and joined the cheer track and cross country team. I also joined clubs such as student council and girls mentoring. I met my best friend during my time at rich south, and I found myself. It wasn't all sunny days throughout my high school experience, but it was an experience I would never forget.
At Rich South, I had a very interesting experience. I attended this school all four years of high school. It is a very good school, the staff really helped me with applying to colleges, they're all about college readiness. For example, my principal, assistant principal, and guidance counselor helped me so much with my personal state essay and an essay about my major. I think that if I didn't have the help from them and my parents, it would have made the process difficult. I am also a student athlete, which means I had practices after school almost everyday. So if they did not help me get focused on college, I may have not been able to finish applications for the early deadlines. Overall, I had a great high school experience.
My overall experience was okay. The staff should be more considerate and appreciative of high achieving students like AP students and Honors students.
Rich South is a great school, it is just extremely restrictive. It may be because of the safety concern and ensuring everyone 100% safe at all times, but it may sometimes seem overbearing. Besides that, I love the Principal Larry Varn, and administrative staff because I know they are just there to help me advance in my college career, and make sure all of my priorities are straight. It can often feel like home, and one big family, because I know me being a Rich South Student and future Alumni, it will never go away.
Overall I had a pretty good experience, the atmosphere was great, my teachers wanted to see me succeed. I just didn't really feel prepared for the SAT, nor did they offer the ACT.
It was a ok experience. I would like to see more funding and attention into athletics. This would most likely improve the admission rate & participation in sports (especially the football team). The academics were “ok”. They’re SOME great teachers who can relate to your child and push them to strive for greatness, but most don’t really care about the child just their for a pay check.
