I had thought that transitioning from middle school into high school was going to be a difficult process to handle, but the teachers and even the students were very helpful when it came to finding my classrooms, understanding the new experience and overall just welcoming. My counselor was always helpful through out my four years, whenever it came to my grades, attendance, or college search. The coaches and teachers are awesome and supportive in tough times and also in the good times. Overall I am very happy that I was able to attend this school.

RBHS is an amazing school compared to the other schools around the area. Most of the teachers care about you, or they seem to care about you. The administration is another story. They are very picky and selective on the way they want their school to run. At the beginning of each semester, we meet with them as a class to discuss our "expectations and procedures." They throw together a 10 slide powerpoint and talk for about 40 minutes. All of that information goes right over everyone's heads. It's a waste of time. The dress code is also irrelevant. The school is also expensive. The food in the cafeteria is cost way too much for its quality and the lines are long, for the very limited time for lunch. Families will have to sell kidneys if they want to send their kids on a school trip. The music department is underfunded, and the sports are overfunded, aka football with their fantastic 2-9 season.
Since I graduated a month ago, I wanted to say that it was a good journey. I met new people, kept in touch with old friends, learn new things both academic and social to help me grow as a person. There were times when the days were long and hard or tired or stress. Sometimes I thought the year is gonna suck but didn't. I learn to push myself and ending up successfully In the end whether be staying up until midnight or trying to finish my last rep during the football session. In the end it help me to be as better person.
