Roswell genuinely has its good qualities that many other schools may not have, but in my personal experience, something about the school rendered me incapable of academically performing the way I previously had. Like anything, it does have its bad qualities, too. I've formed close bonds with some of my teachers and my counselor, as well as other staff, and you can tell they want you to succeed. I will say, there's been a history of fights over the years, the bathrooms most definitely need some touch-ups (they're actually disgusting, in my opinion), and sometimes a teacher might say something irrational, but overall, I think I had a good experience. I now take online classes, but it's more about personal circumstances, rather than the school. Go Hornets!

I loved my high school experience here! Everyone is very helpful and there when you need them. I would definitely recommend this school to others. It is one of the best academically, safety, etc.
Most of Roswell's staff are nice and open minded while others are rude and quick to judge. The principal Dr. Shaw is amazing and has great leadership abilities. The majority of the teachers I had were good and I would go say hello in the mornings before school and they were very welcoming. Some other teachers I had would pick on me for little things or act petty and childish. One teacher I had was close minded and if you wrote papers opposing her views you did not do as well as students that agreed with her. Roswell high school's building was not so great, the bathrooms were always bad and some toilets didn't have seats. The classrooms were for the most part clean and tidy. The athletics were very prominent in the school's culture and also very important. Many students valued sports because it was their only way to college. Some teachers would favor the football kids and let theme get away with a lot more than average students. Overall the school is pretty good for a public school.
