They dont get their rave reviews from US News, and other school rating sites for nothing! High AP/SAT scores, awesome amount of clubs offered (robotics that compete at UC Davis), STEM, and overall challenging academics with outstanding teachers, as well as administration support. Overall, awesome high school that prepare kids for college.

I really like the teachers there. All the teachers are very enthusiastic to teach and they are very supportive of your overall well-being and education. However, much of the school funds are monopolized by the ASB or the football team, which leaves scores of clubs and other student organizations to receive insufficient funds. Due to this problem, I would say that it hinders the diversity of the school. Also, the school has a lot of issues with the school district, which led to attempted teacher strikes and impasses. It's a good place to get your education, but from a social standpoint, I think many students are homogeneous, trying to fit into a certain norm of being a "Rocklin" kid.
Rocklin High School is lucky to have many incredible teachers who care about their work and about the students; the RHS staff is one of the best parts of the school and they 100% deserve district support.

RHS is safe, ASB works hard to make the culture positive and fun, and school spirit is pretty strong. Academics are good-- there are many AP and Honors classes to choose from, and then the 8-class schedule means students can branch out and also take a lot of electives if they want to. Overall, I had a really good experience here.

Grade inflation is a problem, as is diversity (Rocklin is very white). Also, the school is pretty split between students who are focused on academics and those who are not.

The administration does whatever they can to avoid controversy, to the point where that in itself has caused problems. Mastery-learning system, which is a little weird if you aren't familiar with it... you can't get below a C-.

Still, great teachers, great school.
