What I liked about RHS was the easy student-involvement. There was so many clubs and opportunities to be involved during school. Wanted to go to a sporting event? Easy, just listen to the announcements or check your email for the home game schedule for events that month! Plus, get in free or cheaper whenever you wear RHS gear! Also, the counselors did a great job on keeping everyone up to date with their degree track and scholarship opportunities.

At Russellville High School, we have a diverse community. We believe that anyone can do anything if only they set their mind to it. The teachers and faculty are caring and compassionate towards the students, offering life lessons along with education. Many opportunities are offered, ranging from football to the library club. A change that is needed at Russellville schools is its money hungry agenda. We, the students, along with many parents, raise money for the school. We pay unnamed fees, but where does that money go. Does it go towards the school lunches, Christmas bonuses, or all towards funding the football team?
Russellville Highschool is an amazing school where we are always challenged academically, but also have many opportunities for extra curricular activities and clubs. Our school is very involved, and has so many opportunities for every type of career choice. I am proud to be a golden tiger!
