I like that I have more one on one time with the teachers because the school is so small. I also like that my teachers and the faculty know me individually, but I hope that one day all the teachers at Rison will be certified. I have had many teachers throughout high school who were not certified to teach the courses they taught, this meant credit could not be given for taking the course. I also hope that the school branches out and excels in many areas. Rison is known to be a football school. There aren't many choices in sports other than your usual football, baseball/softball, cheer and basketball. (Especially for girls) I hope to see art programs, more female sports, better music programs, maybe a theater program. Rison is denying students, who are interested in the arts, opportunity and scholarships.

Rison is a small school. It's teachers strive to make sure that all their kids understand the material. Their extracurricular activities are fun and have meaning to them. There is little to no bulling. They have won many awards from band, sports, quiz bowl, and chess club. They have a lot of sports clubs available
I've been at Rison High School since my 10th grade year and I have been highly satisfied with this school. They've welcomed my since my first day there. Even though it's a small school it feels like one big family. All teachers and staff help you out in any way they can. Learning is taken very seriously at Rison, each teacher makes sure every student understands the concept before moving on. What I would like to see change about Rison is the time you get to transfer in between classes. At the moment we have 4 minutes to get to class, in my opinion we should have at least 6 to allow time to use the restroom or in case we have locker troubles. Also the parking spaces lines should be repainted, it's terrible trying to find a parking spot. Lastly, I think the cafeteria should give a greater quantity of food, some are less fortunate and that may be their only meal.
