Let's face the facts, folks ... no school in any city or any county or any state is going to be perfect, the kids are all pretty much the same everywhere. Our kids went to several different schools across the United States before we finally moved back home to Arkansas. None of the schools were much different than they are here in Rogers, the teachers weren't much different, the kids weren't much different and the school district administration wasn't much different. The teachers and administration are doing the best they can. What we need is better state laws that let the teachers and administration do what we as parents expect them to do. (Right now the Arkansas state laws are working against teachers and school administration.)

The only reason that I didn't give this school a 5/5 is because of it's students. The majority of them are spoiled prats whom complain about homework no matter how easy and over glorify sports and materialism. The lot don't deserve such a great facility and staff. I've a group of friends who are like minded and they are few, but some people there are worth being around.

It has a good variety of classes and most teachers are very helpful and nice but it is in an upscale town where most of the kids are spoiled, so most of them can be harsh and mean. I have gone to 4 different schools and if I hadn't have made the cheer squad I would have never made friends. If you don't have designer everything and a BMW, Mercedes, ect. then its almost impossible to fit in

Good variety of subjects available to students. Lots of different clubs and afterschool activities for students to participate in. Some parents very involved, others not so much, but it is a good environment for students.

Rogers High School is wonderful. The school is very large. There are almost 2,000 juniors and seniors. The principal, Bill Stringer, is all about what is best for his kids. They maintain an open door poilicy, parents have to make the effort. The size of the school is enough to make a parent feel out of place. The fact of the matter is, even though our kids are close to being out of school, the school is in big need of parents who can donate their TIME where needed at the school. Most feel like their time was needed during their childrens younger school years. This is a true statement, however, the need is still there. These kids are finding they need mentors to help hold them accountable at school and away from school. The quality of academic programs is 100%.WE LOVE RHS!

The problem with this school system is they try to be the parents after school is out. I would not recommend this school system to anyone. Just a bunch of nosey body people. I have leved in many states and my children have attended many different schools and this school sysytem s---s. I am a dissatified parent.

Great School District. Clean atmoshere brand new high schoool. No metal detectors or clear bag packs required. Safe. Excellent School Activities. 3rd year running Cross Country State Champions. A wonderful school. They do not have ROTC though which is a minus but they excel in everything else they have.
