Russellville High School Reviews
I'm currently a senior at RHS. The school has a focus on sports, which is a little confusing since our only good sports teams are our soccer and basketball teams. When it comes to academics you either are in an easy class or a hard class. There's basically no middle ground. As far as the music/art departments, it's pretty outstanding but definitely underfunded. If you are interested in band, just know that the band program at Russellville is amazing! Both bands have consistently received 1st division ratings at concert assessment for quite a few years in a row. The band directors genuinely care about their students and want all of them to succeed. Overall it's a good school, it just puts a priority on, in my opinion, the wrong subjects.
My experience at Russellville High school has been a very good one. The teachers for the most part have been great mentors. They seem to really care about their students and our future. Our principal, Al Harpeneau, goes above and beyond for his students. Always there to greet them as they walk in the doors every morning even in the rain. He also checks on them in class from time to time and greets them throughout the day in the hallways and at lunch. I am confident if any problems anyone may have arise, he will be there to help solve it. The only thing I might change about Russellville High School is the arrival time could be later and more time off in the summer. I know that is not going to happen but that is all I could think of as far as changes to our school. I am thankful for our school!
Russellville High School is a big school tucked in the heart of Pope County. The school has a population of about 1,300 students, which is perfect because the school isn't too small or too big. Sports is the main event that brings the town together, whether it's Friday night football or late-night basketball games, the whole town will come together and cheer on the team. The school offers a great selection of courses, ranging from AP to honors classes. The teachers here are well educated and care about their students. Our school built brand new stadiums for volleyball, basketball, football, baseball, and soccer. We have an indoor multisports facility and a modern basketball and volleyball area, that seats about 1,000 people.
