Rockwall High School Reviews

Wasn't the best but wasn't the worst either. Some of the teachers follow the rules and give the students what they deserve, but some of them made it almost too easy to cheat on their tests and quizzes. One word to describe the school is "unfair". As a Latina myself, I felt that the school wasn't as inclusive as they could be with the minorities at this school. Afterall, Rockwall is filled with privileged white people and they didn't use their privilege to help others. Example: The school dress code forbade females to wear crop tops...well...unless you're white and have the ideal perfect body. Overall, not my favorite school, but I did make memories and had a good amount of friends!

Rockwall is a beautiful city and the view from the windows in class can prove that. There is no shortage for teacher assistance and guidance counselor support. There is a multi-level library with brand new apple computers for any student, as well as a computer lab open all day. There are a lot of after school activities and if you can't find one you like they will encourage you to start your own and invite others with the same interests!
My experience attending Rockwall High School would be overall amazing. Most students are really fun to be around, the teachers are nice and understanding about out of school situations, and the rules are unfortunately fair. I’m a part of the track team and used to be part of the football team which is both very competitive! The coaches are both nice but aggressive which is a good thing in my athletic eyes. The only thing I would change is the indoor rules. We have a rule that there needs to be a coach watching present while the indoor is open which is understandable but a lot of students who have off periods should be allowed to go in and be active instead of sitting and waiting for the next class to start. Other than that this school is the best school to attend. The environment is friendly and right by the lake which gives it an amazing view and it’s easily access-able.
