Rigby was a good place to grow up and attend school. While the administration while I was there was a little lacking, the teacher were great (for the most part, there were a couple notable exceptions). I was an active participant in sports and clubs and the school was very good about supporting its athletes and students in those activities. They offered a good range of duel-enrollment/AP courses for those students that wanted more of a challenge and to get ahead in school. while the cafeteria food left somewhat to be desired it was an open campus so students could go home for lunch, which I often did. All in all it was a very good experience and I am proud to call myself a Rigby Trojan!
This school has a lot of available programs, they just put the funding all in the wrong places. Everyone is too wrapped up in sports to pay any attention to the arts. And so that's where all the funding goes, leaving the band, choir, orchestra, art, theatre, debate, and other similar clubs to scramble for any money to do anything. But somehow they make do. I particularly enjoyed the debate team, the coach is awesome!
When it comes to public high schools there isn't much to make them stand out. At Rigby High School there are many dual enrollment classes that upperclassmen can take to gain college credit before even graduating high school. Which is great! But, more students would be motivated to do them if they were advertised to the parents. This aspect makes the school ok. Another issue with some of the academic counselors there is that they doubt the abilities of students. They sometimes discourage students to do difficult things, which is not exactly what their job is. Sure they're supposed to be honest, but not discouraging. The greatest aspect of this school is the closeness of the student body. Everyone looks out and cares for eachother. It makes school more enjoyable. Overall, the school is ok.
