It's a slightly above average small-town school. The teachers are fantastic, and though there is not as much access to upper level classes as I would like, it's not bad. There is little diversity, but that is to be expected. There are things I would like changed, but it is not bad overall.

I guess it was a pretty good school. I wasn't always happy there but I'm sure that's the same at most high schools. The school building is only three years old so it's pretty nice. But the lockers are too small and all crowded together so that isn't good. And the school tries to do online learning days when the weather is bad and those don't work very well for many students. The teachers are okay - some good and some not so good.
I have had a wonderful experience at Rushford-Peterson Senior High School. The school has a wonderful and safe environment. Bullying is not tolerated at all It does not happen very often but it is stopped whenever it does happen. I would definitely recommend this school.
