Romeoville High School is a truly diverse school with great students and great teachers! Although there is great education, I feel there is change needed in many parts of our education for getting the students ready for the real world. We are learning how to take tests on subjects we will never see again rather than learning life skills such as, how to keep our debt at a minimum or how to speak in an interview. We are learning about historic events, while forgetting about current events and the horrors of our society today. There are many ways this school can change for the better and I would love to see change happen within the next few years.

While I like the courses RHS has to offer, the professors are not great. They either don't teach the material in a manner that the student can comprehend even when brought to their attention, or hate children. There are a few good teachers but majority are not. The after school programs are amazing even though a few programs get biased extra funding, they are all loved and supported and inclusive. It is a very diverse school which I appreciate and there is something for everyone. The students are average and RHS is any typical movie high school. There is also a huge evident education gap between Honors 1/AP and standard. Clear favoritism to the AP and honors 1 kids while standard is left behind almost.
Over my past four years spent at Romeoville High School, I have seen major growth among the staff, organizations, and student body. The school initially had a very poor and ¨ghetto¨ reputation but as past graduating classes have come and gone, the school has also seen some amazing students and AP scholars walk through the halls. I have enjoyed my time spent in the many extracurriculars which our school offers such as National Honor Society, leadership, student council, gsa, and marching band. I do admit that my experience with teachers has not always been ideal. Some teachers have become tired as their years stack up, and as their time spent increases it becomes hard to voice a concern about them due to the seniority and reputation they hold within not only the school but the district. For the sake of future classes of Romeoville High School, I hope that the administration will take the complaints of students more seriously.
