Russellville High School Reviews
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.
My experience at Russellville High School has been a roller coaster ride. Although I have had bad experiences, it is typical for any other high school student to have those experiences as well, and in the end, it has taught me valuable lessons along with those good experiences. I do admire our administration for always striving to better our education. As much as I love this school, one of the things I would like to see is the voices of students being heard because with choices based on students’ favors, this school could bring better experiences to many other students.
The majority of the teachers at Russellville High School were great! always helpful, friendly, and resourceful. Like any school, there were less helpful ones, but I had a great experience with all of my teachers.
