My son has been a student at Roseville for two years. The teachers are very communicative with the parents as well as the students. They encourage students to be involved and are available for additional assistance any time. The upper faculty is great at letting the parents know about meetings and after school events via voice mail, email and/or text messages. Although the school itself is old, the renovations have been great and the character of the school is one of a kind! I believe the diversity of the students is fantastic as well! My son is involved in after school sports and the athletic department has been great to be a part of. I would most definitely recommend Roseville High!!

ROSEVILLE high school is just simply am amazing school. I am a senior and I will be able to graduate on time with my class. The counselor was able to reduce my graduation required credits due to my academics. The school does need a coat of paint but that doesn't really matter, being surrounded by amazing and supportive teachers aand students is what makes rhs great school to attend.

I am currently a Sophmore at RHS and my experience there has been good but not great. I take band and it's never appreciated at all. Student government doesn't care for it at all and doesn't even support colorguard/winterguard as well when there both representing RHS as school spirit. We don't get enough help with recruiting either. We are dwindling here on people and we can't recruit when people don't know about colorguard, or when we don't get enough support from the school. Other than that my time here has been nice. The teachers are great, the football games are exciting and the school is definitely not ghetto.

Hi, Our school is very old and we need to win this money to have more pride in our school. WE want to have it painted and cleaned. My sister and I are twins and we are incoming Freshmen. We walked the halls to see where our classes are and couldn't believe how much the school needs cleaning and painting. It looks like the lockers, ceilings, doors, and a lot of the exteriors of the older classrooms need paint. They probably have not been painted in 50 years. There is rust and bad words and filth all over them. Dripped food, old smashed stuff, back gum spots everywhere, it is really bad! The school has not even swept the sidewalks or washed any tables or trashcans. They are filthy! The drinking fountains have disgusting stuff in them too. Spider webs and bugs on the lights and walls and tables. We even saw a dead rat in one of the hallways. Dead leaves and twigs from the trees are not picked up and the sidewalks need cement repair because the trees roots have made them uneven and dangerous, anyone could trip on them. We have pictures to back up what we are telling you. Please help! Thank you!

Roseville High School has an excellent staff and strong leadership focused on preparing every student for post-secondary education. Their API has jumped from the mid-600's to over 800 over the last five years. In addition, the UC/CSU A-G College-Readiness rate for graduating seniors has increased from 35% to 71% over the last five years. This is similar to the A-G rate at schools like Granite Bay and Rocklin High School. The AP program is also growing. RHS now offers 18 AP classes and the number of students enrolled in AP classes and taking the AP exams has doubled. RHS is a National Demonstration Site for AVID, which targets under represented students and prepares them for college. RHS has a strong co-curricular program, including well known VAPA, FACS, and CTE programs. This includes a state of the art culinary program with an industrial kitchen and an outstanding Geometry in Construction (GIC) program. In GIC, the students built a 700 square foot house while learning Geometry. This year RHS is celebrating it's Centennial Anniversary...The RHS community is full of tradition and Tiger Pride! And, RHS does all of this with the most diverse student body in the district!

Roseville high school is a great school, don't get me wrong. People think that because the school is 100 years old that it is ghetto, when it is not. Most of the buildings have been completely renovated and it has a good football field. The school has been subject to vandalism on certain occasion, but a lot of schools get vandalized. It is not only subject to RHS. Academics are good and the teachers are good as well, there is a wide mix of student groups. The school has a peer helping program that helps kids accept others and themselves and it's great. The band is hardly appreciated at all. The counselors will try to sway you to take AVID or underwater basketweaving instead of band. Which is wrong, and speaking of counselors, if you need to speak with them...Forget about it. You need to make an appointment and it's a total bureaucracy. Half of the time they are out at lunch and never even see you. Same with the principle. It's a good thing they removed the PAWS program as well. It wasn't working and only put more stress on staff and students. I would recommend attending this school, it really isn't bad. It has little issues that can be easily ignored.

Roseville High School was a great high school for me. I graduated a while ago, but I think RHS did a good job preparing me for all that I've been faced with so far in college. I enjoyed the sports, the spirit, and the education all the faculty and students offered. RHS has some of the greatest teachers I've ever had in my life; as a student, I felt supported and encouraged. Extracurriculars were great, too! Now that the construction is over, the campus really looks great. A nice place to study and have fun with your friends!

Kids who want to learn and are involved with parent support, will always do better and the extracurricular activities at RHS are awesome! As far as a parent saying it is a pit, where do you think the funds should go when they receive them - beautifying the outside of the school or working on the inside where education really counts. If money were not an issue, they would have all areas improved. Look at the Patti Baker Theater and other new buildings, new parking lot off Berry Street and painting amongst other things. They have done a lot. Your negativity is completely unjustified, because if you were there, involved with the inner workings of the school, you would think differently. Dropping your child off and not being involved doesn't give you a chance to see the inner workings of the school. We are very happy with RHS. Our first child is a graduate, our 2nd is currently attending and we will have a third right behind. We are proud Tigers!

As a past student, I think the principles spend too much time trying to bust kids for drugs than paying attention to their education.

No school is perfect! Roseville has it's share of problems but they are not any worse than any other school. Everyone tries their best to keep our school a great place to be. If you have a problem at this school then you obviously have problems where ever you go. Roseville is great!

Roseville High school is s pit that very much shows its age. It s dirty (more gum on the sidewalks than side walk). Lockers are kicked in, dirty dingy; the only paint that isn t peeling is the graffiti. If you want your kids to have the feeling they are about to be shanked at any moment, Roseville High School is the place to send them. A large percentage of students can forget about extracurricular activities as the Rosveille school district has to ship kids who live 10 or more miles away to the school in order to get attendance up. Many students pass by other High scools like Woodcreek to go to this pit. How nice for all those families that paid Mello Rues to pay for Wood creek that our now forced to pass by it on their way to a vastly inderior school. Way to go Roseville, always amazing!

I soon will have another child attending Roseville High in the Fall and really excited to be back invoved. I believe everyone has their personal experiences with the school and also unfortunate things happen. The key to a positive experience is to be involved. Your child and you! If you are involve you have a more hands on ability to communicate with the Administration in a positive manner. Most people that have negative experiences, probably have them wherever they go. Step up, get involve and make a difference. The schools are what you make them. It takes many to make a team not just one. Again, Go Tigers!

Worst schools around.When the principle tells you they don't have time there is a problem. When you ask questions they beat around the bush. Roseville schools are about the money and not the kids!

I currently go to Roseville High and there are few complaints I have. The campus is nice, although it's far to large, and you're not givin nearly enough time to get to classes on time. Also, while a lot of the teachers are dedicated to the students, a lot of them just don't seem to care much. It's better then a lot of schools in our district though!

Excellent programs to keep students involved. My daughter particpates in athletic activites and theior dance program, which is excellent. I love the tigerlink program that allows parents to see their kids progress almost real time (updated grades are typically posted within 1-2 days of tests and assignments) so there is very little confusion about progress and why grades are what they are.

Roseville High is still a small town traditional school. Orange and Black is everywhere, from clothing to cars. Roseville has an administration that listens and cares. As for teachers, most teachers that have been there for many many years are retiring and new, fresh ideas are coming in. Roseville to me is the real world. Not upity or low scale. I am seeing some great changes in the athletics as well and alot of improvement in facilities. You can never have enough parent involvement. If you are just moving to Roseville area, Roseville High is a down to earth real life spirited school. Go Tigers!

My daughter has gone to RHS for the last 3 years and will graduate in 2008. She has had an amazing experience and has done extremely well. She is a 4.0 student with college plans to attend a private university. Her academic career at RHS has been challenging and her involvement in Drama has been a life teaching experience. We love RHS despite our disappointment when we learned we weren't in the Woodcreek school zone! We think it was the perfect school for our daughter after all.

The school focuses on programs like dance and cheer. Hardly any attention or advanced academic prep is given to students who would like to atttend tougher colleges, like ucla, ucb, stanford,cornell etc. In addition, the school does not let the brighter students transfer out, in spite of being PI

I am extremely happy my son went there. The teachers were always willing to help when my son needed help. 5 stars, 2 thumbs up. They are adding on to the school and it looks better than ever! I definitely recommend sending your students here.

So much negativity about rhs. No, it's not wealthy like woodcreek or granite bay, but the students who want to work and learn do well. How many title 1 students attended woodcreek or granite bay? The class of 2006 had students going to cornell, stanford, ucla, ucberkeley, calpoly, offers to harvard, and that's just a start. If you look for negative, you will find negative anywhere and everywhere. Do not blame a high school or the administration for the location, etc. Of the school. Take a look at the exponential growth of roseville. Rhs has done a great job to accomodate the influx of students with limited resources.

Excellent school but overcrowded! The Roseville school district is in great need of redistricting. I should not have to shuttle my child clear across town to go to school. Very frustrated parent.

My son has been going to Roseville High for about an year now and i've been seeing the progress and education that's he's getting from there and i think it is pretty good.The high school itself is going to be 100 years old in 2012, and has made new beautiful buildings/classes fully equiped with new computers and good technology.Overall this high school is a good high school for any kid to go to, in the really good city of Roseville in Northern California.

The Counselors are excellent. The school itself is conservitive compared to the bay area schools. My kids are doing much better here, than they were in the bay area. The school offers lots of guidance. Any time any of my kids have asked any staff member for additional help in either academics, sports, career research, college, or anything at all, they have always helped my kids. They truly seem to care about the kids and the community. I am very impressed. I know that RHS scores are somewhat on the low side, however, I do not feel that the scores alone reflect the quality of the school and staff. My kids are not Title I kids or Gate kids. The school offers something for everyone. There is a lot of diversity, which I also like, as that reflects the 'real world'.
