I had the most amazing experience at Rutland High School. I was given the the best opportunities throughout my time at RHS. I was able to better my community through service projects and fundraisers supported by my high school. I was able to be a part of so many things; Mock Trial, Student Government, Environmental Club, National Honor Society, Speech and Debate, and Global Citizenship. Through all of these opportunities, I became better ready for my college experience ahead of me at Connecticut College. RHS gave me support throughout my four years and I would never trade it in for the world.

To be completely honest, I struggled mentally for my first two years and I believe that’s because, even though I was surrounded by a bunch of “friends” none of them were truly there for me and I felt alone. Junior and Senior year were the complete opposite, which is weird because that’s when I was actually happy and I was glad to have found my few real friends that stuck around. Overall, I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. Rutland High School offers so many different class and different services if you need help.
Rutland High School offers a lot of different things to participate in which suit all kinds of interests. School spirit and pride among sports teams, clubs, music groups, and festivals is a key part of being a Rutland Raider. Because of the smaller size of the school, students can form close and personal relationships with teachers and staff, which can sometimes lead to lifelong bonds. Overall, a more than decent place to learn and play.
