I wish it was smaller and ALL teachers cared for each student. While many teachers had a connection with students, there were several that didn't even know who I was at conference time. My mom often complained that they didn't answer emails on a regular basis.
I loved the band program and Mr. Redmond. I have many great stories and memories involving band.
I was also on swim team. My coaches and teammates were amazing. I love that our school had swimming as an opportunity as it helped me choose a college!

I loved my experience at Rock Springs High School! The classroom sizes were around twenty to thirty. This allowed for ample one-on-one time with teachers if needed, as well as the feeling of safety while asking questions because you were in a smaller classroom setting. The teachers genuinely cared for your education and wanted to see and help you succeed. I could not have asked for a better four years to end my high school career.
My experience at Rock Springs High School has been pretty average. I have been a cheerleader all 4 years which helped me branch out and learn more about my staff. I wasn’t really prepared to graduate by my teachers til my senior year though. They have changed their guidelines this year 2019-2020 to care more about the underclassmen drop outs rather than graduating seniors. I love the teachers and staff as they always have helped me but I would like to see some changes in the way they handle some situations. I feel like you should be taught college readiness from freshman year to senior year so you are more prepared for what’s coming in the future. The high school is a good place, all places have changes that need to be placed, however I did enjoy my time at Rock Springs High School because of the COVID-19, we were not able to go back to school. However they gave us internet options and laptops to continue our learning which I highly appreciated as a senior.
