Roland-Story isn’t the greatest school one can go to, but it sure is up there. The teachers, administration, staff, and its students are all incredibly polite and stand out with their character. Roland-Story strives to promote their sports and clubs so nearly everyone is involved in one thing or everything. The teachers help by co-leading these sports and clubs and engage into the students lives by getting to know each and every student on the court or field and in the classroom. Even though high school food isn’t supposed to be your mom’s best cooking, there are moms in the cafeteria and they’re always smiling and cooking to the best of their ability and it’s actually really good stuff! The janitorial staff are so fun to talk to, and aren’t just janitors, but friends to many students. In the end, Roland-Story helps prepare their students to be well-informed and educated with the greatest character as they move from a small high school to wherever their future takes them.

I like that you know everyone at your school, most of us have grown up together. The teachers are pretty good, they're always there for you. We also have a lot of fun activities our principle sets up for us. Although, there are several things I would change. This school does not take bullying seriously at all. People are given a number of chances, when they shouldn't. Nothing is really done when you report that someone's bullying you. Overall, we're a pretty good school. We have very talented people here and great academics and fine arts students.
I love the way classes are set up at this school. The teachers are very reasonable, don't give out tons of work or homework but still get the learning through. They value your other values. Also the curriculum is very pleasing. One down fall, if you are in advanced classes or in a class meant for a grade up it is kind of hard to work out a schedule because it messes with those classes. Other wise it's all great!
