Very Different from other schools I've been to before. Loved the independence that we had from early on.
My experience at Richland Collegiate High School has been the best last two years as a high school student. RCHS is a program that allows you to complete two years of college through the Richland College campus during your Junior and Senior year of High School. Each student is able to choose the major and receive their associates degree based on the courses required for graduation. Along with taking college courses your also required to take high school courses that will help you further develop many skills as a college student. During your two years at RCHS your capstone research will be one of the best experiences you could have. You'll be able to learn how to research in research methods along with developing new study skills in College Transition. Senior year you will choose a capstone research based on a problem that needs to be solved such as Homelessness, Poverty, Animal Cruelty, etc., and present your capstone poster.
The school is as good as any other school, just higher content level. I don't feel like the administration help is really helpful much, it more up to you how much of yourself you put into your education. You can also get varying quality of education based on what professor you get but that's normal. I have had a couple really good professors and I still speak to them, but you can also have professors that treat you like like a high school student. I could have summed it up in the first sentence, but I have a character requirement because I am doing this for my school because I have to for an assignment so just expect to do this too. Overall, it's ok and that's it.
RCHS is a decent high school. It is a high school that includes a dual credit program. We are able to graduate with both high school diploma and associate's degree in either art or science.
My experience at Richland Collegiate Highschool has been great overall. I have the opportunity to graduate highschool with my associates at no cost. The program is very rigorous and has helped me obtain many skills that will help me further in my career path. I would not have chosen to go to another school because I believe that this school prepared me than any other school would have.
RCHS is a really good school. This program has prepared me for what I believe are many important aspects needed for college. At this school you truly learn how to make use of all your resources, how to study efficiently, and about how stressful school can be. With that in mind the school offers counseling services and often has fun events. An example might be study jams, study jams was this event that went on for two days in accordance to finals week. Study jams was a service offered in the learning center where free snacks, drinks, and activities were offered, as well as academic help in any subject. I also really enjoy the environmental aspect of the school, the river and such are quite relaxing. The staff are really helpful whether it be in locating something or in helping you learn something. I love this school and I’m so glad I took the leap to be apart of their amazing program.
Although the idea of the program may seem nice, the administration, staff, and planning are very unorganized and make the entire experience very stressful while overworking students. Additionally, Richland college professors cancel classes often and are not truly dedicated to their students learning which make classes impossibly difficult.
I love everything about Richland. It gave me a chance to get my associates while getting my high school credits. I love how diverse this school is and how everyone gets along.
This school gave me the opportunity to finish with my associates degree as well as my high school diploma.
Very Rigorous program. It requires a lot of hard work along with lots of mental and emotional commitment. Some of the staff can be annoying and unreasonable, but other than that it is a pretty good school.
I like the diversity at Richland College. After, coming to Richland I have made many valuable friendships that I believe will last my whole life. I was upset when I found out my whole junior year at Richland was going to be online due to Covid-19. Richland College provides students with the opportunity to participate in fun school events such as powderpuff football games or masquerade volleyball games.
I had an OK time here, earning my Associate's for free. However, the advisors really do not seem to care about their students so it was very hard for me and it honestly felt extremely lonely at many times.
So far, the experience at RCHS has been nothing short of great what with meeting new people and spending time with them while earning college credit.
This school is great to get ahead in education. It provides the right tools to succeed in college and beyond.
Overall, great highschool that prepares you for actual college. I think the strength that Richland Collegiate High School has it offers a unique experince with an autonomy to its students. This allows for students to construct their own scedule and how they move about the campus. The campus it self is pretty and if you are someone intrested in nature you will not be disappointed. The down side to attending Richland Collegiate High and the most obvious is that it is very different from regular high school. The lack of a high school experience is what usually turns those interested in this program away. Another thing to be mindful of when signing up is the social aspect of the school. Each year of Richland is different and brings different challenges along with the social environment being somewhat unrelable. If you do end up at Richland stay focused on your acdemics and pick up the many useful skills that will be taught to you over time.
Going to Richland College has changed my perspective on school and is preparing me for college. Richland is a good school, it is a spot for people who want to get ahead of their normal class by taking college classes given a chance to graduate high school and with their associates degree.
I like how it is a very different environment similar to college. It helps us be prepared for our future university.
