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.

Rockwall High School is a very good 6A school that competes very well in every sport and club that they have here. The people here are very nice and the community here is great! Rockwall High was built in the middle of town on the biggest hill in the city, which is why it overlooks the lake. Its truly a great school to be apart of.
Rockwall High school is a spectacular school that challenges you academically, and finds a perfect balance between work and play. The classes and faculty make sure that they teach effectively and efficiently. They give you a level of responsibly for your own grades and actions, yet simultaneously make sure no child is left behind. The culture and school spirit that flows through Rockwall can be seen in every student and seen in all fine arts/athletic programs. Rockwall is truly a blessing of a school I'm lucky to take part of and experience.
