Richmond Hill High School Reviews

Richmond Hill High School accommodates over 2000 students when the school was made for around 1000. Classes are crowded, the lunches are nasty, and there's the stereotypical mean girls and nerds. Teachers are forced to work at sports events for no extra pay and they tend to let things slip under the table. But, the academics are great. We have something around a 98% graduation rate. Our tests scores are really high, and many people take AP classes. This isn't a school where teachers want you to fail; after-school tutorial is mandatory and there are special attendance policies. Us wildcats have a lot of pride for our school. We have a popular hashtag: #wearerh and out student section at sports events is the best out there! Overall, Richmond Hill has the pride, has the motivation, and not having the best resources doesn't stop us.
Review Richmond Hill High School
Richmond Hill High School is the best choice I've ever chose to enroll in. Teacher and students are hard working on getting to know each other. Clubs & Activities give you chances to do things you've never done before. For example French club went to Savannah, Georgia got a chance visit an orchestra and dine in an classy food establishment. The marching band has been Grand Champions running for 3 years. The school's cheerleading team has been announced as region champions for 2 years in a row now. Academics is incredible! There is a class for almost any career you want to go into. AP Psychology for examples is a college level class that is offered at this school that gets you ready for classes like these in college career pathway ready.
While the friends may be nice, the faculty is not. Many times I have been treated lesser than a normal human being. I feel that students should be treated with respect, then the administrators would receive more. However, there are some amazing teachers few and far between. Unfortunately, the school is overcrowded and most times it feels like you are overlooked as a growing individual. Personally, I have noticed that the school does not encourage creativity. Also, there are times when I question if the school cares about its students' well being. Outrageous attendance policies say no. While I have had nice memories at RHHS, the dread I feel the night before school cannot be ignored.
