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!

Roswell has been a great school overall. The three biggest problems are drug use, poor restrooms despite the renovation, and low levels of club participation. In recent years the students have started vaping in bathrooms throughout the school day. There aren't enough female cafeteria monitors, so admin has decided to just lock the cafeteria bathrooms completely. Speaking of bathrooms, a few of the female restrooms don't have trashcans in them, so the bathrooms have gotten just as disgusting as they were before the renovation in just a few months. Clubs also usually just fizzle out after a couple of meetings; students aren't interested or just don't care. Despite these issues, the school is generally a great place with helpful teachers, awesome athletic teams and arts programs, and lots of encouragement from faculty and staff to improve the school.
I overall liked my experience at Roswell! I have had amazing teachers 90% of the time who help me out and want me to learn and understand. There are so many clubs, sports, and activities for all students. It would be hard to not get involved. The only thing I would like to see change is the bathrooms. It would be one thing if they just were a little dirty (because they are public bathrooms), but there are broken seats and broken doors and half the time there’s no hand soap.
