Rome High School offers many opportunities to their students. Many students participate in diverse clubs, advanced academics, and competitive sports. No matter the background of the student, there is sure to be opportunities that fit best for a student at Rome High. Rome High School makes sure to recognize and award students for their excellent performances in both academics and sports. This recognition provides a boast in moral that keeps students working hard. Although Rome High is an excellent school, there are some issues just like with any school. One of the main issues at Rome High School is that the system teaches to memorize, not to comprehend the information. Because the school focuses on the passing of students, rather than the comprehension of the information provided to the students, some students leave Rome High unprepared for the challenges of college academics that await them.

My name is Ava Freeman and I started at Rome High School in the 9th grade. Most teenagers don’t graduate with a pleasurable high school experience, however mine was amazing. Previously I had attended Unity Christian School, a very small, and conservative private school. Moving to Rome High could have been the most life changing decision I ever made. My school has approximately 2,000 students, and a faculty that cares about all of us. Leaving a school where I knew everyone’s name to a school where students spoke more than one language was eye opening. Throughout my four years of high school, I participated in every event Rome High had to offer. I feel as if having that kind of opportunity has prepared me for almost any encounter I‘ll face in college and beyond. I’ve had amazing teachers who I’ll remember forever and made friends with students of almost every ethnicity. I’ve grown so much over the past four years and I couldn’t dream of going anywhere else.
Rome High School has a diverse environment where all are accepted. There are many AP classes that are offered in all the different fields of study. The school will set up any student for their future whether their future entails a 4 year university, military, or straight to the work force. RHS lacks a little in the minor things like cafeteria food and all textbooks are not up to date. The textbooks aren't a major issue as most of them are online and majority of teachers don't teach from the textbook. The teachers are very supportive and are experts in their field. Some students can be loud and disrupt class, but that will come with any high school. Overall, my experience with Rome High School set me up for my future and has helped many others.
