I liked Rams Day, where we do community service to help our town. I would change it by making more activities were it involves the whole school.

I am currently a senior at Roaring Fork High School and I have loved the last 4 years. The environment is so friendly and the teachers have always been supportive and kind towards my dreams for my future. I have been able to form bonds with some of the most passionate and amazing teachers, and I think it will be incredibly bittersweet when I leave RFHS. All of the admin. Staff has been incredible, especially my vice principal, Kelsie Goodman. She has always pushed my to my limits and I always know she will be there to support me and believe in me. All in all, Roaring Fork High School has been an amazing school, and I wouldn't trade the small town atmosphere for anything else.
Very friendly environment, great school to grow up in but not the best school for academics. Staff is caring but there are few departments that need work. Vice principal is for sure the base of the school. She is caring, involved and truly feels the school colors which is very rare to find.
