Posted February 27, 2011

RCHS has one of the biggest drug problems I have ever seen in a school. Do not send your kids here is at all possible. I wish we would have never moved here. The teachers don't teach right and the school board is bad also. I have never in my life seen a school system or school ran so terrible in my life.

I am i sophomore at rchs and i think this school is not a good school. The teachers dont spend enough time encouraging students to be all they can be. They spend more time worrying about dress code and cell phones and sports. Those thigs are important too but education should be the main priority.

RCHS has one of the best Speech teachers. Beth taught my daughter and was able to get her to speak so good. Thank you RCHS

I believe one of the best things to happen to RCHS is one of the English teachers. I have seen a tremendous growth in my child's learning. I believe he truly makes a difference at this school. Another thing I see are kids actually trying to have goals and accomplishments. I see great things happening here. We do need more parents woking with the teachers. I have taken off days to visit my child. I wish others would too.

May 2005-as a parent of a former student that attended wedowee elementary, middle school and 1 year rchs i would like to say i my son was always on the honor roll. I didn't know there was a severe problem in his lack of knowledge until he went to school in georgia. He was 2 grades behind in skill. It was due to curriculm he was provided not his capabilities. The work was tooooo easy. There is an extreme small town, old name prejudice here but it can be overcome if you are in a decent economic class. Do your history 1st.

Im a former graduate and player for the 2003 state championship football team. And let me say that Randolph County is all about working together for the better good. Striving for excellence is very important. But you have the few bad seeds that say they dont know anything but all in all really are the one's who dont pay attention in class, get in trouble, etc... I have had many principals and techers through my years at Randolph County, and let me be proud to say that they knew what they where doing, and always tried to help. But it is always up to the students to decide do they want the help or sit back and cut up in class. But the question I leave to yall is, is there parent involvement in anything beside the sports? NO! Thank You RCHS Alumni 2004

I am a student at Randolph County High, now in my junior year. I believe that this school is a great school. Sure we have problems now & then, and there are those teachers you just don't like, but can you find a school where everything is perfect? Can you find a school where all the teachers are qualified & liked by everyone? I don't think so! I can honestly say that I love my high school, and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

My child attends RCHS elementary and has done extremely well. She has become an extremely good reader thanks to the AR program. In fact she scored in the 99%tile in reading. This school has by far the best teachers in Randolph County and they do an exceptional job. These teachers teach a wide array of students and must work hard to ensure improvement grade by grade. Some schools in the area think that because they have a lower amount of ethnicity that they are a beter school. Sure their scores may be higher but any idiot would know this is due to a lower percentage of low socioeconomic children in their school. Research shows that it takes better teachers to teach a more diverse student population. Most of the teacher at the other schools moved there because they could not teach in diverse school systems.

I am a former student now a parent. I know things have changed alot overthe past 11 years since I have been there. My child is very happy in this school and I am happy to say my child goes to RCHS for many reasons. Most parents have came to this web-site to dog the school about discipline. These parents need to realize that these kids are there to learn not for the teachers to baby-sit. All in all, if the parents would teach their child right from wrong, the child would never get into trouble in the first place. In the Code of Conduct you had to sign stating punishment or not, maybe you should reread it. A child/teenager has to give respect to get respect. Parents need to be more involved with the child and with the school. If you think discipline should change(go to PTO-bring other parents!!)

As a parent of a student who is learning disabled I would like to say the school did not meet my childs educational needs. My child was punished for not being able to perform as her peers and when I addressed the staff with this problem. They told me by law they could do this. I removed my child from this school and she now does much better!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 23, 2004

The discipline in the Randolph County School System is not good. Where they should be punishing the students they suspend them, this is just a vacation; it isn't solving anything. They also let kids (most especially the ones in the special ed classes) lay out of school entirely too much without turning it over to the authorities.


Posted February 14, 2004

Small town mindset leaves staff with small minds. The principal wants to make changes for the better and the local government won't allow it.My childs right to an education is being violated by a teacher, but no matter how many reprimands the teacher receives, she continues to run on self-will. Randolph County High School is unable to teach its children through the swamp full of politics.
