I am currently a rising senior at Rolesville High School. After 3 full years at the school, I have been able to experience a lot that It has to offer. Out of the abundance of clubs to join I chose Key Club, DECA, FBLA, and NHSS. It is a wonderful after school activity to meet new people with similar goals. Each club opens up a new opportunity to get involved with the community and each other. For example in Key Club, I've been able to participate in countless food drives, and actually aided in loading trucks filled with canned goods! I've also experienced athletics (soccer) and love the competitiveness! Your team is like a big family. The teachers are extremely helpful, as well as the faculty and the counselors. Going through countless honors and AP courses, I can say it definitely challenges a person, however, it is 100% worth it in the end. I am very excited to go into my senior year! Rolesville High School, in my opinion, is one of the best schools to attend in the WCPSS district.

Overall I loved being a student at Rolesville high. My principle has been with me and a good number of my classmates since middle school so she was always so open with us and interacted with the students daily. The programs were well organized and fun to be apart of. My favorite moments all were from being apart of the amazing band program the school had. Rolesville was also good at letting students express themselves. They held an amazing international festival, fun pep rallies, a rallied up supportive student section and so much more. When things started to look rough, our student body came together to prove that we are more than what people thought we were. We would support our school by posting pictures with #myrolesville. Unfortunately, I never got to experience what the previous seniors got to experience in the past when graduating but I couldn't be happier to say I graduated from Rolesville Highschool. Once a Ram, always a ram, and I wouldn't have asked for it any other way.
