My oldest son is a Junior there this year. He has had a great education. I will be very proud to say my son is a graduate of RHS!!! Thank you to all the staff at RHS for always doing what is best for your students!!!
What an opportunity. I wish every child had the opportunity to attend this school. This school has programs from Automotive to Engineering. The doors this school could open for your child is numerous. The staff is nice and the building is inviting to parents. If you are looking for a place that will open doors to your child's future then you need to check this school out.
Russellville High School employs weak teachers. Some do not hold degrees in and are incapable of teaching their assigned subject. The extracurricular opportunities are poorly led by individuals who do not care for his/her students (i.e. band). The school itself reflects that of an asylum - white walls, white floors. It is not a place for education.
We really do offer so much to students to help them achieve their independent goals. For the artistic, creative, musical students, we have the finest Performing Arts Center in the state. For students in math and the sciences, our STEM center offers a wonderful facility and programs that are not offered elsewhere in the state. We have three publications for students who want to publish their work (yearbook, an online newspaper at rnb.russellvilleschools.net , and literary magazine). Students can enroll in AP classes and college concurrent credit classes or in vocational classes. For athletic students, we are currently building a competition center for basketball, volleyball, wrestling, dance, and cheer. The district has, in conjunction with the city, just upgraded the baseball/softball facilities. On top of class offerings and facilities, we have a faculty and administration who genuinely care about the students and go above and beyond to help them succeed.
RHS offers a wide variety of academically challenging courses in addition to career/technical training while also providing numerous extracurricular activities. These programs are not just for show - the school is competitive in every program that it offers. The staff works hard to make sure that our students leave our campus prepared for their careers, no matter what field they will enter.
