I am a senior at Rock Falls that is involved in multiple clubs and play volleyball and softball. I am involved in Spanish club, National Honors Society, Girls Group, BLAST, BLIND, Student Council, and Class Officer. Also, I like the different clubs that Rock Falls Township High School has to offer to it's students. The variety of sports offered gives athletes an option to explore other opportunities. Our school offers baseball, softball, volleyball, basketball, track and field, cross country, football, golf, bowling, and swimming. There is an endless amount of activities for students to get involved. I would like to see changes made to some of the athletic facilities, so they can be more up-to-date. Overall, Rock Falls does not need huge changes just a few here and there because Rock Falls is a pretty great place.

I have attended Rock Falls Township High School for four years, and I would not prefer to go anywhere else for my high school. The most distinct piece of the school is the teachers and how much they truly care for the students. From my Spanish teacher making sure everyone was having a good day to my chemistry teacher simply chatting to make the classroom feel more welcoming, every day feels very open and calm. Due to our size, everyone knows everyone. The hallways are filled with laughter every passing period, and the classrooms are full of cooperation and teamwork on every project. Additionally, I am especially proud to see the mix of every grade level in the clubs. Seeing seniors and freshman talk during club meetings always brings me joy. The mix and diversity in clubs is always incredible as everyone seems to feel comfortable with each other. Although my school is not perfect, the culture and the people make every day feel worth it.
I am a graduate from Rock Falls Highschool and attending college at Western Illinois University as a Freshman When I attended Rock Falls Highschool there were some things I liked about the school such as some of the teachers especially the Psychology teacher there were things I disliked as well I believed the assistant principle Dunphy was rude and always picked favorites If you were not on Dunphy's good side you would find yourself in many detentions, in schools, dress codes, and much more it was as if she tried to find you Another thing Rock Falls High School should work on is investing their money better In 2019-2020 Rock Falls did not have enough money for a volleyball team so the Rock Falls girls were forced to play volleyball for our surrounding town's team in Sterling I understand football is a major high school and college sport but Rock Falls should look at our previous scoreboards and either put less money into the sport or put the majority of their money into a coach
