Most of the teachers at Riley County are willing to help the students and it feels very personal. The classes aren't very challenging though and there aren't a lot of classes to choose from. I would love to see them improve more on the academics of the school, which would make Riley County a really good school!

My experience does not encompass everyone’s opinion of Riley County High School. If a student, parent, teacher or other decides to get involved and strive their experience would differ from someone who doesn't. What I liked about RCHS was the ability to do anything and everything. Since the school is small, it’s rare to get turned down for a club or sport. This makes it easier for exploring choices and finding what you love. I’d love to see the amount of teacher professionalism change. In a small town it can be difficult to find and hire experienced teachers, as it’s also important that new teachers learn how to lead. Issues occur when students see obvious favoritism, or can tell the teacher doesn’t care. I hope Riley County High School continues to hire professional teachers who treat students equally and are consistent in how they teach.
Overall, Riley County High School is not a bad school. For me personally, I would prefer a slightly larger school, which is just a personal preference. There is an average amount of clubs and activities to be involved in. However, I wish that there were more classes available to students. Many kids are forced to take online courses because they have used up all their other options. If more electives were available to students, I think it would make many students more interested in their high school experience.
