Rome High School Reviews
Rome High School is like a second home. In every corner there is someone always wanting to help others, that's said about faculty and students. The programs that are at Rome High, are very diverse so everyone can find their place. It can be from Arts, Academics, and or Athletics. One will never be alone at Rome High. Even more so, we are the Den, and once a wolf always a wolf!
Rome High school facilities are okay, they're not the worst but could be better. There's always a lack of bathrooms being restocked with toilet paper and soap. Moving to academics, there's constant cheating with cp students, and no one has dona anything of it. Although the AP and CPA classes do make up for it. AP teachers always seem to have a better connection with students. There's also many fights throughout the year. While there may be lots of diversity within the school, there's still lots of bullying that can be seen. Many teachers oblivious to such matters. Teachers also giving too many chances to misbehaved students, which makes students who actually want to get work done really hard to focus or even let class run.
It was, in general, a good all around school, however as a former student, during my time there, there were several downs, such as the dress code getting rather restrictive and essentially prevented girls from wearing shorts in the summer due to the "You can't show your knees" policy for the length of shorts. However, most of the teachers I've had were kind and cared for the students academic well being and are willing to listen to the students when they speak. But as per usual, there's also the handful that is just there to get their paycheck. The school has an outstanding Band Program that I am proud to have been a part of. Both of the Band directors(Mr. Hannah, and Mr. Warren) are nice people who want to see the band grow in technical skill, as a diverse group, and as individuals.
