My overall experience with Round Rock High School has been a mostly positive one. Personally, I think we have an issue with the teachers and their attitude towards students and the subjects they are teaching. Some teachers are biased and play favorites which can distract from the learning environment. Other than the few issues with some of the faculty members, Round Rock High School has been a good experience. Being a sophomore, I'm starting to gain some more insight into what makes this school run, and from what I've seen, it's been mostly positive.
Review Round Rock High School
Overall, I believe Round Rock High School is a great school to be at. Their preparation for big exams (such as AP and STAAR) are good enough to get students to pass or reach the scores that they want. I do believe that there is an unhealthy emphasis on grades, GPA, and rank, which sort of hurts the environment. Maybe advocating less for those and more for taking classes that the student is interested in would be a lot better. Also, promoting a healthier school environment (in terms of the looks of the school as well as the student body environment, such as support and friendliness) might help in dealing with the stress of performing well in school.
Round Rock High School (RRHS) in my opinion couldn't have been a more pleasurable experience. The school at the time was growing more and more each year. The facilities were great just as the atmosphere was. Most teachers were their not to teach, but prepare students for college. Administrators were okay at times, not the best but not the worst. But the real attractions was the diverse community and the love for tradition and sports. There was no better feeling than spirit circle on the mornings of a football game or the getting out of class for lunch and walking over to the baseball games, and going a supporting the vast amount of sports. RRHS was a great experience filled with dedicated faculty and a rich atmosphere for maroon and white (school colors). Reminiscing about a great 4 years (class of 2014) I can proudly say I wouldn't have picked any other school.
