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.
Founded in 1912, Roseville High School is the oldest in its district. Located in the Sacramento suburb, Roseville, the high school on the hill has a student population of over 2,000. Roseville High proudly hosts and serves all special education and ELS students from the district making for a comparably diverse student population to its sister schools in the district. Roseville high has many clubs, sports, and other student activities from a German Club to a competitive Waterpolo Team, International Club to Football. Roseville High also boasts several student produced publications including The Eye of The Tiger newspaper, Rose Leaves yearbook, and the annual Roseville Review literary and art magazine. Though formerly in danger of Program Improvement(PI) status Roseville High has seen a recent academic turn around and seeks to maintain a level of satisfactory academic performance for the remainder of its history.
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!
Roseville High School really cares about the students, every step is taken to help each student grow, and learn to be successful in life.
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!
roseville high school is a hard school to go to. there is way to much pressure and drama. i hated it.
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.
Fantastic school because the teachers treat the teens with respect and in return get respect. Very happy w/ this school.
Roseville High School Is better thanany other high school in the Sacramento Area! We pass up the other high schools in this area in sports, academics, spirit, and even in population, by far!I love my school!
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!
Roseville is a great public school. great counselors and staff. the school is crowded and has some discipline problems but thats about it.
This is the best High School Ever! There is such a great school spirit and the teachers are amazing!
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.
