RECHS is such an incredibly amazing program. The staff is great! The reputation is misleading. We're coming back, watch out for these Falcons soaring with P.R.I.D.E.
Someone needs to check the last names of our top 10 students, including our salutatorian and our valedictorian. Latino. In eighteen years of being in education, our principal is one of the finest I've had the pleasure to work for. Our administrative team cares, truly cares, about the welfare of every one of our students. Yesterday, I saw seniors earn their graduation, seniors whom everyone gave up on except the staff at Rubidoux. I've seen the teachers pour blood, sweat, and tears into the lives of other people's children. We care more for the students than some of their parents do. Rubidoux is often the only stable, loving, and encouraging environment that some of these kids have. Anyone who disparages this school has an axe to grind, probably brought on by bitterness with something else at its source than Rubidoux. All I can say is, congratulations class of 2011. You made all of us proud. Go, Falcons!
I was a student at Rubidoux for only a year, sadly. This is a great school for those on their way to college. The RECHS (pronounced 'reaches') program allows students 16 years or older to take college courses concurrently with their normal high school classes. This allowed me to get a full year of college done... for free! The staff really cares about the students, and as someone who wrote a review earlier, those only students that are failing are doing so because of their own lack of initiative to ask the teachers about their grades and how they can achieve better. The only thing that isn't great about this school is its reputation, which is totally wrong anyway.
this school has a lot to offer with the RECHS program. it is an early college program where students that are 16 years of age get to take college classes while also taking their high school classes. this gives students a great head start in college while students get to practicipate in other activities such as fieldtrips. besdies the RECHS program the overall atmosphere in the school is calm, realaxed, and very school spirited. go RHS!!!
This school has caring and dedicated staff. As for the principal , being in a leadership role leaves little to be desired.
i am currently a student at Rubiduox high School, and i think that this school is great. Sure we have a bad rep but none of it is true. I really enjoy the school spirit that we have, especially in the KGGI 99.1 vs. Staff we had in March. That was the best experience I've had so far. I really appreciate all the support I've received from teachers and they show that they really care about the students. b
Rubidoux has been going through tough times. Moving campuses, then coming back as a new with practically nothing. I remember not having tennis equipment for my Tennis P.E. Class untill close to 2nd semester, but we are all trying to make it work. A lot of students and teachers are working together to make this school great. There are some many clubs and extra curricular activites. Many ROP classes on campus, and not to mention having RCC in OUR campus! We have quite a few AP classes and very good college prep classes like AVID and RECHES. The photograghy lab is one of the greatest in the Jurupa District. Rubidoux has a lot to offer, we just need time to shine.
I am a graduate of Rubidoux High School and I felt it was a great school. The only thing I feel the school was lacking was student/ parent involvement.
loove the skool [[specially the teachers and classes]] people there are very friendly and fun to hang around =]]
Rubidoux is an excellent school. I have to say some of the teachers I could do without but otherwise I am having an awsome experience as a high school student. As far as the students go, if they are failing it is their own fault for not paying attention or not addressing the teacher about their grade and what they can do to bring it up. Sports are going great, I see a lot of progress but we could do even better if we had some student and parent support =). All i have to say is, 'don't judge a book by its cover' Rubidoux has always been known as a 'ghetto' school because of its area but most people don't realize that we are doing a 7 period test and it works out great. We also have RCC currently at our campus which is giving students an oppertunity to succeed
The kids are taught like robots. Critical thinking is not encouraged. Teachers are bored and boring. No extra-curricula activities that the kids really want only whats easy for administration.
Great school! people who say there is too many gang members that's not true because we haven't had that many problems with fights and violence as much as other schools we have only had a few.
I think this school is the greatest school and teaches people to work together and to work hard to earn things.
its a great school my children have been doing great since they attended this school
Safety-wise, the police come pretty quickly if they are ever needed. Parent involvement is certainly encouraged, but the school can only do so much. Extracurriculars are present, students just aren't involved to make them better. Like any school, some teachers are better than others. I happened to come out of honors and AP classes. The teachers did their part, but the students must also work to achieve anything. But the school has undeniably good, even great, teachers.
I don't feel safe here because their to many gangmembers in Rubidoux High.
I've been going to Rubidoux high for 3 years...now Patriot. And Rubidoux has been an awesome school. I do learn a lot, the teachers are great and overall its a great learning environment.
ive only gone for one year, but i loved it no other school in the world can compete
The Safety and Discipline was rated 4 out of 5? I attended this school about 3 years ago, and the learning environment was poor. The students were poorly motivated, and some of the new teachers were massively underexperienced. Take it from me, a former student. If you want your child to succeed, you'll want him in the proper learning environment. This is far from it.
I used to go to rubidoux high school and I really loved it. All the teachers were great and if we the students are failing it is our own fault for not paying attention because teachers do their best for us to achieve.
