Rome High School Reviews

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.

Rome High School made me feel like I belonged to an incredible alternate family. Whenever my mornings at home started badly, Rome High School made me feel better. It felt almost like a second home. Not only that, I found my calling through the multiple extracurriculars that are available in the school such as robotics, technology students association, and astronomy. The teachers were excellent and I was able to make strong bonds with them. I felt like I belonged to the community, and I love everyone there.
Rome High had great academics and amazing teachers, but there weren't enough opportunities for everyone. There wasn't enough of an effort being made to give all students the opportunity to be involved or even just receive tutoring. Some kids were given special chances that weren't awarded to everyone else for no good reason. All in all, Rome High wasn't really a place of equal opportunity.
