Rocky Mountain High School Reviews
I love Rocky. It's an amazing school with such an amazing atmosphere. The setup of the schedules is really nice, too: only four classes in a day, and they change twice as often as typical high schools. This made it really easy to get further ahead in subjects, and it also made it easier to graduate as a music student. So many departments here are so good! The choir program has even won a grammy! The upperclassmen make the underclassmen feel welcome like no other place I've been to. I highly recommend this school.
Rocky Mountain High School emphasizes community and acceptance above all else. Typically, new schools can be intimidating and forbidding to incoming students, with many offering empty promises of an inclusive environment and a dedicated student body. Unfortunately, some of these promises fall flat and give way to a harsh environment were some students begin to feel the effects of encompassing isolation. In this regard, Rocky stands in stark contrast to other high schools, as it truly provides a family-like environment, where both students and faculty are intertwined in the greatest high school experience a student could ask for.
Its so bad. It doesn't teach you anything that you should need. Yes, math and English is important and there is no doubt about it. But think about it, in the future most jobs are going to be automated, so what is the point of all of this. There is also way to much homework, and doesn't give you enough time to do and try your own thing. The kids are young, they have time. they should try spending it with family and friend doing the things they love. Or start new things before its to late. But they cant because they are thinking to much about their dumb grades. Also, whats with GPA's anyway, that is probably the worst way to judge how smart a kid is.. Okay, now i'm just talking to much. But frequently I was told violence is never the answer, but life doesn't abide my the rules of a child. They don't know how to fight only how to surrender. So change and i might change my answer
