I liked the academic awareness and engagement the teachers allowed the students to have. The structure of the school environment introduced academic competition in an exciting and invoking way without acknowledging hardship as a problem but more of an obstacle. I would, if I had the chance, to educate more on racial, sexual, and systemic discrimination and awareness, but my senior year was not one to forget.
Rider High School has very limited opportunities and the teachers don't seem to know what they're doing beyond their subject, however many of the teachers had good personalities.
I was a Rider Cheerleader and loved being involved with the school. One thing that I liked the most about Rider was the tradition of mum day, when everyone wasn’t allowed to say anything all day until the bell rang at the pep rally. One thing I would like to see change is the dress code. The dress code is very strict and more towards the girls.
Rider High School is an average school. I've had good opportunities available here, but the consistency of the activeness of the clubs is lacking. I've eaten a good amount of the cafeteria food. They definitely have tasty options, but I wish there was more variety. The quality of your education is very dependent on who is teaching the course. I've had great classes, but others weren't as good. I'm certain that a better allocation of resources would better the whole district.
Rider High School is a place where kids are shown they are loved. The teachers and admins make sure that students know that they are wanted. Our principal tries his best to greet everyone and let them know they are seen. Rider overall has excellent teachers that want their students to succeed not just pass. Teachers make sure we are learning, and not memorizing information for a test.
Rider High School has been an experience that I will never forget in my life. Attending this school has taught me how to and how not to treat children in a learning environment. It is interesting that the school has great academics, yet the staff is usually less than helpful. In my experience and speaking to other students, it seems as though there is a general consensus that the faculty did not seem to care as much for our education as we might like to think that they would have. Through this however, we students have persevered and cared for our educations. There does seem to be a great society within the student life as many of us are involved in sports and other activities pertaining to the school.
I have had an amazing time at Rider so far. The teachers actually take the time to make sure you understand the material and that you are actually preparing for college. I’m involved with the theater program there and I have to say it’s been my favorite of Rider. I’ve actually learned up to current events in US History which is something most schools don’t actually give you the chance to do. The Chemistry program is leased by very adept teachers. I came in to the school half way through the year quite lost as my old high school wasn’t all that it could be. My chemistry teacher was very accommodating and made sure I understood the material.
They have a decent variety of classes to take. Some easy classes and some harder. It’s really easy to find what you need. The school is pretty corrupt though. If you fall into the wrong crowd, it’s almost as if the teachers are trying to keep you from helping yourself. Anyways, there are some pretty cool clubs and things to get involved in.
My first year at Rider was interesting as I was introduced to a whole different environment that is high school. As the semester goes on, i started warming up and getting used to it. All of my teachers past and presents are really nice.
Rider High school is located in Wichita Falls Texas and provides their students with a great place to learn and strive in academic areas. Rider has a wide variety of classes and offers dual credit and AP classes for those interested in getting a head start. There are many different clubs and activities for everyone to be involved in and there is a large diversity of kids. Everyone feels welcomed and the teacher are very helpful. The administration is very friendly and helpful.
They honestly need to get better certified teachers for certain subjects (such as those who are not coaches). You also should not be afraid to ask a teacher a question, you shouldn't feel tense in their presence. Some of them are very hypocritical in their teachings. Also, during corona, their sanitation is poor and online students are at a great disadvantage. The counselors are kind but expect your parents to get called for every single little mistake that is caught through Go Guardian & Gaggle (which monitor students' activities online). And if there is some sort of harassment report that you file, it will only go so far.
I enjoyed my time here. There were a lot of extra activities to do and the teachers all seemed to care.
The school is only as good as you make it. If you wish to be an academic scholar, for example, they definitely have the courses to make it possible; however, dedication to your studies is very much needed as well since there are some teachers not as adept at teaching as they should be. That being said, there are also many teachers that are capable of not only creating a excellent learning environment, but making friends with the students. The lunch is about as average as it gets. The safety is above average, with one or two police officers, locked doors, and only being able to enter through the front doors. The racial diversity is also limited. There are more than a couple clubs, enough for anybody in the school to fit into at least one of them.
I've only been here for a year, but I've already been given so many opportunities! Most teachers genuinely care about you and you learning, rather than just tests. Everyone is super invested in sports, and our band is successful as well.
The school has excellent teachers that are really committed to helping their students. The faculty is understanding and that helps build a connection with students.
It was alright. The school culture was good but poor facility and weak college readiness. Overall not the best.
I’ve attended rider highschool for 3 years, and these are my opinions of what this school had to offer
