I love the family experience that is created at the school. The “Ram Fam” is a big part of what makes the school what it is. Teachers are always willing to help and they want you to succeed. My teachers have always kept up to date with things going on for me outside of school and they want to see my succeed in those things as well. I love me school and I love all of the opportunities I have been given at TCR. There are countless clubs and groups to be a part of that get you more involved with the school. It’s overall a great experience and I would recommend anyone to go there!

My children are a senior and freshman at TC Roberson High School. I also am a graduate of TC Roberson High School. We have been very pleased with the academic, athletic, artistic and overall programs offered at the high school. I cannot imagine my children being anywhere else and I think I turned out pretty well!
T.C Roberson is a very diverse high school located in the Blue Ridge mountains. There are many inclusive clubs and activities offered at this school, ranging from Creative Writing club to level 3A sports teams. This school also offers a wide range of academic courses, and also offers the most AP classes in the district. I would love to see this school switch to renewable energy, such as solar panels, for daily activities and to be more environmentally friendly. Another way to achieve this goal is to create a compost system at the school, so less goes to landfills. Also, by creating a garden, the school could have access to more fresh (and cheaper) produce.
