One thing I truly enjoyed about my time at River Hill is the inclusivity of the student body. Every day in school presented learning opportunities not only in the classroom but as a result of my peers. Being so connected with one another allowed me to expand my knowledge of different cultures and better understand the effects ones background has on who they are today. If I could change anything, I would bring in more student-oriented teachers. Some teachers at River Hill are only there because it's their job and they have to teach us to get paid, while others are there because they want to see us students thrive and it is those teachers who must comprise the school's staff.
River Hill High School is an amazing school with outstanding academics, sports and extracurricular activities. We are one of the top schools in our county and the education system is in an orderly structure giving all students different opportunities to succeed. Although I take pride in my high school, it is short of one star. River Hill will always be my home, but it is not necessarily a welcoming home. The community and students there are all very competitive and cliquey. At times, even in your own friend groups there will be competition and rivalry, resulting in the ending of a friendship. The academics are so intense that the need to be on top seems to wrap everyone's mind in a trance. River Hill High School is indeed a competitive school, but through the different opportunities, one can meet true friends and happily succeed.
