Coming from another school, this school is great. Yes lots of clicks but there is so many there is a place for everyone - even new comers. The teachers really like what they do and seem to want to teach it to us. Like that you can go to other schools for things that aren't here or to get different experiences.

Unfortunately the school as a whole is struggling with major issues. Although the building is new'ish it's in poor condition and not kept up as it should be. There are multiple issues with the construction (like the windows). As other reviewers have noted, although there are some great teachers there are a good number that seem to be counting the days until their retirement (which still could be 20-30 years away). There are not enough AP and Honors classes available. School spirit is high and it's a close knit community. However the athletic department is in need of a full-time AD. A school this size must have a full-time professional administrator. Recent troubles in the athletic programs have highlighted that need. Success in the gym or on the field do not override other major concerns that have been brought up and need to be addressed. The school seems to operate on a shoe string budget and that manifests itself all over the high school experience. Overall the administration needs to work on acting and appearing more professional and realizing that you can't always be the friend of whatever teacher/coach has gotten out of line or parent making some demand.

I graduated from RHAM in 2013; my experience was mixed. Although the facilities are new and top-notch, the quality of teachers and faculty does not always seen to match. Some tenured teachers are notorious for not grading assignments and otherwise "mailing it in," while some more junior teachers are popular among students for their distractibility. The quality of guidance services is also mixed, and support does not always seem available from all guidance or faculty members. The culture of the school is also somewhat socioeconomically divided which leads to it's own set of problems. There are not many opportunities for truly bright, independent minds to succeed and be nurtured at RHAM, though the athletics department is quite good. On a positive note, there are plenty of truly wonderful, quality teachers at RHAM that every student is sure to have the pleasure of learning from. The administration is also very well meaning and does not respond with an iron-fist to discipline problems that arise, but with more constructive, common sense solutions. However, in retrospect, I wish I had attended a magnet school or private school.

I graduated from RHAM and am attending what many would consider a tough college. Honestly though I am easing through my freshman year of college and finding myself helping others. I can't help but attribute my knowledge and easy academic transition to RHAM. The only negative is I feel they should offer more ap courses such as macro and micro economics.

This school has very rude and aggressive administration that do not care about the atmosphere of the school, and allow bullying and fights to continue in the school. Teachers in this school have very sloppy performance and constantly lose papers and misgrade assignments.

RHAM is a very good school with a very tough curriculum. Students in their freshman year learn material usually taught to a junior in surrounding states. The principals, however are very poor disciplinarians. They won't do a thing for bullying but if a girl wears shorts to school she must call a guardian to bring her pants to wear and cannot return to class until she has the pants on. There are a lot of elective choices, which is good. The food is decent and there is a variety of what to eat that changes every day. The school facility is beautiful. Each classroom has a Smartboard and there is even a news anchoring station in the school. The teachers are great, however, there are some who do not know how to teach. This school is really great. It does have a drug/alcohol issue, but what school doesn't?

I have been following girl's volleyball and find no mention of the team in any category. They are an excellent team, but get no recognition on your web site. Since they have been state champions for the past four years and are now in the finals I would like to read more about them in your sports section.

This school can be extremely challenging, and extremely time consuming. As time progresses, students become more and more busy, and there is an increase of peer pressure. Many participate in at least one sport or club of interest. There are so many choices and options that are available for students, if they seize the chance. For me, I am partaking in many clubs, and rigorous classes they offer. In each classroom, there is a smart board. The actual school itself is relatively new from about 7 years ago. My only complaint is the social aspect can be lacking, due to many being unwelcome. However, there is always a group of people, with whom they can socialize.

This school has a very bad principle and administration. The extra curricular activites are limited and it is so general. like there isnt any specific clases only general classes that leaves students confused on what to do in the future. I think Rham is overrated. There is a very low ethnicity difrence and alot of drug users/deales.

This school is great. It's friendly and comfortable, and you feel like you get a great learning experience here. All of the teachers are very friendly and advising, and they try to understand the students to help them get the most out of their high school career.

The teachers and students are friendly, and overall it's not a bad atmosphere for learning, but the kids aren't pushed enough for their own benefit. Few extracurriculars but a good school for those students that are not college bound.

RHAM High School is a brand new school in Hebron, Connecticut. The school services three towns (Hebron, Andover, and Marlborough). The school is large, extremely high tech and has excellent sports teams. The school services its students not only with good food, but a well known school newspaper 'The Sachem Scribe' and interesting television and radio stations. Each class has around 250-275 students. The teachers and administrators are exceptional.
