Rim of the World Senior High School Reviews

My experience at Rim of the World High School was pretty good for the most part, however as a community we lack diversity and as well lack academic opportunities and technology. Living in a smaller community has its benefits such as growing up with familiar faces and attending High School with them. However the diversity of different ethnic groups is not popular within our school. The majority of students are white along with some Hispanics and very few African Americans. Our academic opportunities are immensely scarce and limited. Classes offered are usually dropped within a few years and the need for teachers is high. Although, we as a community live in an affluent area, our school district rarely has enough funds to provide us with new necessities such as learning equipment, sports equipment or even offer courses that help the students outside of High School.

I am currently entering my last year at Rim of the World High School. I'd say my overall experience at my high school has been really good and problem free. The teachers are all amazing and the students are not always the best but for the most part they are. Safety and attendance are major concerns for the school which they take very seriously. One thing i would have to say is that sometimes the school doesn't do enough such as host a lot of school events , provide ample like other schools or do enough for certain sports but other than those things , Rim is a great , small, and peaceful high school.
Compared to a lot of high schools, Rim has a very close-knit, family like community as the majority of the students have known each other since elementary school. The school's small size also has benefits, as a smaller population tends to have less conflicts and everyone is easily remembered. Most of the staff at the school are alumni, which makes the experience more entertaining once you hear about their experiences. The school also has a campus like no other, with a view of the valley right in front of it. There are also two special sports offered at this school, those being mountain biking and shred team (Rim being one of the only schools in socal having a team), which really adds more unique value to the school.
