Richland Northeast High School is a very great school! There are many different clubs that you can be a part of, the faculty and staff are very nice people and are always willing to help if needed. Not only is it a great school but the children that attend there are also good people. Even though the school is very diverse, everyone there treats each other like how they would want to be treated!

I want to preface this by saying that I first went to Spring Valley High School to start High School and it was not very good. In terms of Education, Spring Valley was good but everything other than that was not. The school's worst problem was the fact that they actively punished kids that easily lost stuff. I was one of these and I got detention hours extremely often because of this. When I transitioned to Richland Northeast, I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that all of the criticisms that I had with Spring Valley were remedied and made better in fact. The best part is the interactions that the counselors have with the students and the amount of College Readiness that they do. It is amazing the amount of work that they do to get the students ready for the real world. The teachers are also outstanding! They truly care about students without being extremely strict and are easy to get to know and trust and this school is just amazing!
I love RNE! The teachers really care about our success and even after I've left their class, I still keep up a relationship with them! We also have TONS of clubs and activities. There is also a whole lot of school spirit! Everyone dresses up for homecoming week and other spirit weeks. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities, too. We host two annual blood drives and a Relay for Life.
