Rock Bridge Senior High School Reviews

I love Rock Bridge! It is very different than the middle school I went to before. I came from a Catholic middle school. We had religion class, went to mass every Thursday and Friday, and prayed before and after every class. So, when I first went to Rock Bridge it was kind of a scary difference. There are over 500 people in my grade compared to the 72 in middle school. Lastly, there was no praying, going to mass, or wearing uniforms. But, the thing that shocked me the most was the way that every single person treats me. About 92% of the school's population ,including the staff, has treated me with the upmost respect. Now, onto academics. In almost every single class I have learned about five thousand things. For example in Physics, I learned about how there are different reactions to the way you exert your energy. I learned so much from every single class and really bonded with the staff and the community at Rock Bridge High School.

Rock Bridge HS is a great school with lots of opportunities. The teachers and clubs are the highlights of the school. There are hundreds of clubs, so everyone truly has something for them. The teachers are supportive, encouraging, and care about you and your success. I always feel safe at school, and the school does all it can to keep its students safe and prepared. There are a lot of opportunities for clubs, trips, and college preparation!
Tons of different extracurriculars to involve yourself in, and the internships handed out by the gifted education teacher are incredible. Job shadowing and TA opportunities abound. Super involved and beneficial school!
