I am a graduate of this school. The majority of the teachers are former graduates and can't seem to move past their high school "glory days". The teachers were rude and not interested in helping anyone but the top students. I remember several incidences where teachers were insensitive to students going through difficult situations. I also remember an occasion where one student was being blatantly bullied by a group of girls. Nothing was done to remedy the situation because the girls were cheerleaders. Also, there were at least two incidents of inappropriate relationships between a teacher and student that were swept under the rug. The academics were pitiable and did not properly prepare students for higher education. There is no diversity and anyone who is different is bullied mercilessly with no intervention from the faculty. I would never consider this school for my own children.

Anyone who gives this school over a 3 is lying to you. Athletics are much more important than academics, they still have books from the early 2000's, and are torn up, the computer labs arent up to date, etc. Yet new weight equipment, gym floors, etc. are able to be upgraded without a thought. Half of the teachers SHOULD NOT be teachers, they complain like no other about students, there bosses, except for when a "higher up" is present. There are a handful who should definitely not be there, as they are hateful to people. Helps if you're one of the "good ol boys" also, as they get special treatment. A 4/5 or 5/5 stars? please.

I am a current student at Rogers High School. This school places too much emphasis on athletics rather than academics. Athletics are certainly important, but academics should be a school's number one priority. No advanced placement classes are offered at this school, with the exception of advanced English (which is still not an AP certified class). The school's reasoning is that they do not have enough funds to allocate the purchase of textbooks (a simple solution to this issue could be having students purchase their own books for $45 or simply taking $1,000 out of the overflowing athletic fund). I often feel that I have missed out on many academic opportunities by attending this school. Most of the teachers worry about themselves and not the students. Many miss teaching at least half the class period to finish gossiping about students with the other teachers in the hallway. Many also give their children (and their colleagues' children) special treatment. If you are not from the area, I certainly do not recommend sending your child to RHS; they will get lost in the shuffle.

The school is very good if you are from the area... IF you are an outsider forget it. Bullying seems to be allowed as long as it is directed to an outsider. If confronted it is said, "Aw shucks, boys will be boys" Every level of adminstration looks the other way if the bullying is toward an outsider.

I am the mother of 3 and current have one graduate from Rogers a 5th grader and an 11th grader. The truth of the matter is that it definitely does matter who you are (what family you belong to). It is a common phrase 'they're outsiders'. With my first child and my step child we struggled to be included and treated fairly. Now that we have been in the community for almost 20 years my 2 younger children do not have to deal with these issues. We are no longer considered outsiders. And for the academics. Well, some teachers are great and some not so great. I guess that's the case everywhere. My daughter is extremely sharp, eager for knowledge, and loves to read. She came to my husband recently and told him that she wanted to change schools because she wants a better education than they offer.

My father was an RHS graduate, my sisters and I are all RHS graduates and all my children will be RHS graduates by 2011. My only regret.....my grandchildren do not live close enough to attend RHS.

It is a great school if you were born and raised here. If you are not one of the 'good ol boys' your kids are looked down on by both the students and the staff. Also the communications between the school and the parents needs major revamping. I have been asking for several where to find the list of school supplies needed for middle school and I have gotten NO response. When your child's grades start to drop there is no notification till you get a failing report card.

As a former student at a competitive four-year University, I would say that Rogers has a long way to go before it is considered a school that adequately prepares students for further education.

I am the parent of 3 children in Rogers. 7th, 4th, and Kindy. We moved here from another state finding nothing but the best in this area in teaching and services for our kids. Having one of my kids in sp. ed. in another state and now here, I have been able to compare them. My son recieves twice as much here with a lot more concern, acceptance, and nurturing here. He loves going to school at Rogers. I can't say enough about their programs and how they deal with IEP's it has been a very smooth process moveing him into the school system. My oldest is in the marching band this year and absolutely loves it. My middle child is involved with cheerleading and can't wait for the jamboree this weekend. As a parent of 3, I can highly recommend Rogers for your child. Jennifer SAHM to 3

I am a graduate of Rogers High School, and my daughter is a graduate of RHS. I loved the school when I was there, and my heart is still with this school. My daughter started in kinderngarten and graduated in 2006. The teachers are very caring about their students and willing to work with the students to see that they get a great education. I feel that we have caring principal leadership and I am so proud to be called as RHS alumni and proud my daughter is also an RHS graduate. She was so impressed by her teachers that her goal to to teach at RHS when she graduates from college in three years.

I am a Rogers High School Alumni. I am not a parent but when my husband and I have children they will go to Rogers. I work with children who have been displaced from their homes and I can say from experience that the faculty at Rogers High School is excellent. I have a younger sibling who goes there and I know that this is a great school to send your children to and a great community to live in.

I am a former student at Rogers High School and currently a Military Officer. When myself and my family exit military service, our kids are definitely going to Rogers. The quality of administration, teachers, and programs are secondary to none. If you want a school that truely cares about your childs education, this is the one!

Our son attended Rogers during the 2002 and 2003 school years before moving to Brooks. We were very pleased with the quality of the teachers,administrators and facilities at Rogers. The overall atmosphere was happy and he had challenging work. He had no trouble with bullies at Rogers, while it was a BIG problem at Brooks High School.

It is obvious that the previous review was written either by an angry student or by someone who knows nothing about rogers high school. We have quality teachers and administrators who genuinely care about their students. Also, we have the best cafeteria in the county. Just ask anyone who regularly eats at the other cafeterias and they will tell you where they would eat if given the choice. As for the soap in the bathrooms, we had that priviledge in the past only to have it abused by some of the students ( probably the same one who wrote the previous review)!
