I was a student at this school when it was Gardner Junior High back in 1999-2000. This school has excellent offerings on a variety of subjects and levels to prepare students for high school and college. I was impressed to see the quality of the teachers and staff compared to when I used to live in California. It was a huge treat to see the teachers care for the students, and were always available if a student needed help with anything. I feel that RJHS is the best junior high school in preparing students for their future.

RJHS has a wonderful staff. The principals are involved with the kids along with a good group of teachers. They have a great School Resource Officer who is very involved with the kids and provide safety to the school. They have many extracurricular activities for the kids to be involved in also.

For the most part all of teachers are great. But just like any school, some are way better than others. It all depends on who you get. I Love you Mrs. Graham. Love ya Mr. Faddoul.

The principal at RJHS is amazing. She keeps the students active and the teachers listening to the students. The teachers at RJHS are the best that I have ever seen. All work hard to keep their students working their hardest. The discipline is good, and the safetly of the school is very high. This school is the best that I have ever had the pleasure to work with.
