I graduated from Rolling Meadows high school in 2012. I participated in Cross Country and Track & Field and throughout both sports I was able to make great connections with not only my teammates, but with the coaching staff as well, that to this day I still keep in contact with. Playing sports motivated me to do well in the classroom as well and the teachers at Rolling Meadows High School provided all students the care and attention we required to absorb and learn the material. I felt very prepared going into community college after graduation. One thing that I think Rolling Meadows High School could improve on is educating students that are first generation future college students. I was a first generation college student and my parents did not have much guidance and or advice on the college application process so maybe if Rolling Meadows High School can provide specific resources to educate both parents and students that are new to the college application process.

I have had an absolutely amazing experience at Rolling Meadows High School. Thanks to the wide variety of not only courses, but extracurriculars as well, I have found it relatively easy to find hobbies I am passionate about. To be honest, I think the extracurriculars are what makes this school so outstanding. Not only are there a wide variety of opportunities, but the staff has so much respect for each and every club, society, or sport. However, the reason I would only rank the school 4 stars out of 5 is because there have been quite a few instances in which the administration, in my opinion, left their students and staff in the dark during important times when the communication should have been more prominent than ever.
Rolling Meadows is an overall great school. With challenging academics, friendly staff, and inclusive students, my experience here has been really fun. The diversity we have is also really great!
