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.
Review Richmond Hill High School
The Arts departments at my school are like no other.

I am in Marching Band as a color guard, and we have won many competitions. It really is like a family. The drive to succeed as a team brings us all closer together, and makes us depend on each other no matter what situation we encounter. We will go to Washington D.C. this year and March in the Cherry Blossom Parade.

The chorus went to New York City last year and performed in Carnegie Hall! I am an alto section leader and really enjoy the camaraderie that we all exhibit.

The Visual Arts Department is also AMAZING! Mr. Coffler is an excellent drawing and painting teacher. I have won two honor awards for works submitted in his class.

I am a student with a 4.0 who also enjoys the sciences at my school. The classes are filled.with experiments and hands on learning opportunities! They offer Zoology which I intend to be my major in college.

I would choose this school again because of all the wonderful experiences and opportunities that have been provided for me! Go Wildcats!
Having been a student who had moved from a different state and had to adapt to a whole new atmosphere, the school had a welcoming school spirit about itself that made that transition easier. I have to been honest, one of my main concerns with transferring to a new school was the risk of bullying. I have been fortunate however, to never have been bullied at this school thanks to its close companionship that is gained between the students and the teachers. Confidently, I can say that a majority of the teachers at this school not only take their job seriously, but also work diligently to make sure that the students learn, and feel welcome in their classrooms.
