Overall as an IB/AP Honors students I believe we have phenomenal groups of teachers in each program. The teachers do a tremendous job in helping you through the rigorous demands of juggling multiple classes. On the other hand, the environment during lunch and during transitions of classes is at times unacceptable and uncontrolled. There are situations where there’s multiple fights that even cause lockdowns. Though the environment is at times uncontrolled, I would recommend Rock Hill High for there great faculty and staff!

I feel that Rock Hill High School has successfully prepared me for the years ahead. The counselors and administrators here have set up many events and activities for seniors to receive help with college information such as career days, college application day, college trips, counselor meetings and so much more. Rock Hill High School has allowed me to earn the credits I need and possibly even some credits for college which is the good thing about taking AP, IB, or dual credit courses. I think that there are improvements and some adjustments to be made, but I'm positive they can be fixed and changed to better educate the students here attending Rock Hill High.
I am a junior at Rock Hill High this year. As a freshman, I quickly got the hang of everything. The administrators stress the wearing of our ID's all day but only some students get written up for not wearing theirs. Any individual could easily walk onto campus with a bookbag and blend in instantly, with no ID. I do not care for the amount of physical altercations that take place, nor do I favor the prevalent smell of weed and vape. If you surround yourself with the right people and do not get involved with the wrong crowd, your experience will not be terrible. The teachers are great and don't hesitate to help before or after school.
