I really appreciate RHHS for all of the wonderful qualities it consists of! Like any school, it has plenty to offer its students, but also lacks some important attributes. I love how the teachers engage in a very helpful dialogue with the students especially when the students are worried that they aren't fully grasping a subject. The students are not as nice as they could be and typically create a lot of drama and sometimes sadness. Overall, the school is very clean and nice and many would be lucky to attend!

It wasn’t too bad, the actual education you receive is worthwhile because some teachers don’t teach at all, so you are forced to learn the material on your own. I am not talking about AP classes with that problem, just to be clear. I have taken a variety of courses at RHHS from AP honors and regular and I can safely say that the AP classes taught here provide a pretty good representation of how college classes will be (simply comparing my AP work to that of dual enrollment) and have found that AP classes here are must more challenging and prepare you better for higher education than that of any actual class from Georgia southern. I would like to see the campus and food change because frankly they’re terrible the west campus is rotted and old, black mold grows from the lunchroom ceiling and some of the food looks like it. Thank the board of education for building a new school which will be done in a few years because this one should be quarantined!
Richmond Hill High School is a safe school that many parents are confident in choosing for their child. Plenty of students have opportunities to go to school elsewhere, or somewhere more convenient, and yet, parents will choose to go the extra mile for this establishment. The school has a zero-tolerance policy, so it is not often a student will risk getting into trouble by threatening any safety, as it will diminish their own academic future with suspensions and alternative school quickly. The school is very consistent with locking all doors, in light of the past events in the history of devasting school shootings across the country. Besides safety, many extracurriculars are offered, clubs most didn't even know existed. We have updated technology, rigor classes available, as well as very helpful counselors for any academic, or personal aid and support. Overall, this school can be a great option for anyone unsure about where to attend.
