Rincon High School Reviews

251 reviews

Looking for a welcoming environment? Well you won’t find it here! Let’s start with the environment: students here embody your average (slightly more exacerbated) high student. This means if you want an environment where you’ll reach your full potential (that is of course you have potential)
this isn’t the best place. One might argue that uhs/ap classes will help those with potential; maybe, but in the process, you’ll be very unhappy due to the insane amounts of homework and smugness/snobbery of the uhs students . The teachers and students in the uhs environment are overall unwelcoming for newcomers (clits and student preferences are prominent). Both schools aren’t conducive to the success and happiness of a person. A better school would be in between the difficulty (although doable if all energy is aimed is at academics) of uhs and the averageness if rincon and if the environment isn’t filled with BULL POOP!

Rincon High School is in Tucson and is from the Tucson Unified School District (TUSD). I personally love Rincon because we share a campus with University High School which makes the campus diverse. We can take their class and vice versa. UHS offers more AP which benefits RHS. We share the sport teams, clubs and fine arts on campus. Some disadvantages is the math department at RHS isn’t good and the monitors often have favorite students. One thing RHS could improve is facilities due to the fact that students vandalize or leave trash everywhere. The district should improve the resources, food and college readiness for all the schools as many students and parents complain. Overall, Rincon is a great school but has some disadvantages.
My experience as a student at Rincon was well. The school is very diverse and has a friendly atmosphere. The teachers actively ecourage students to do well, and most usually give opportunity to work with students when they are struggling.
This school also has a superb band program as well as a disciplined orchestra as their performences often rank high.

One of the things I'd like to see different is a change in attitude of the office staff. At times they can be difficult to work with, and may come off as unwelcoming or inconsiderate to both students and adults.
