One of the amazing things about Rolla High School is that there is an activity for everyone. From Unity Club to Varsity Athletics, there is a place for you to feel welcome and accepted. The thing that I personally have benefited from the most would be the amount of dual credit opportunities that are available. I feel prepared to face the academics in college and have at least 30 college credit hours currently. While these things have benefitted my high school experience, there are some things that could change. Cooperation amongst different athletic and activity groups could help each student feel encouraged in all aspects of their day. To be supported by the band director in your ability to play volleyball or to be supported by the Student Council advisor to be involved in Key Club, or even be supported in one's decision to not be involved in anything extracurricular. While there are some changes that could benefit RHS, it has served me well and prepared me for my academic future.

Currently, I am a Junior at Rolla High School, and my experience here is quite average. Many of the teachers at Rolla are quite helpful, and truly do wish to see their students succeed. There is not a lot of diversity, but there are quite a few international students whose parents attend MO S&T. There are many clubs to choose from, with new ones being made seemingly every year. The campus itself is a little small, and the old parts of the building are not in the best condition. Rolla High recently built a new section for the math classes, and it is a nice addition for the school environment. The school also recently added an art gallery on the first floor, which showcases students' artwork and adds to the school's culture. There are many AP classes and chances for dual credit, so if a student would like to get a head start on their college career, they definitely have the chances to do so. The principles aren’t very easy to work with, but the counselors are dedicated to the students.
