Russellville High School is one of the very best high schools in my area. As for academics, we have classes for everyone: Honors, Advanced, and Standard, along with many extracurricular classes, such as: Agriculture, Parenting, Food innovations, Musical Theatre, Band, and hobbies class. I personally enjoy RHS's Show Choir, Theatre, and Band programs. By doing these clubs I get to feel connected and involved in my school and community; it's also fun! The teachers in these classes always go out of their way to make every student feel important and special. Our teachers have great character, and treat the students with kindness and fairness. Our sports facilities, coaches, and teams are also outstanding! Recently the students petitioned to create a soccer team, the administrators saw the desire for the team and granted it to the students! Our players love the coaches, students love the staff, and when you have the aspiration to learn you will go far in life.
Russellville is a pretty good school due to their academic achievements. Also because of their perseverance for success. They have a great sports program. They have many clubs you could join like for example Spanish, science, chemistry, FCCLA and many other clubs. The school is very diverse. The teachers and administration are very nice and caring. The counselors are there to help if you need anything as far as talking about stuff that is going on at school to even talking about what you want to do when you graduate. Russellville high School is such a good school system. I have truly had a great experience here.
