I've been out of RTHS for 3 years now, and I still believe it is a good school. Granted, there are some behavior problems that occur and external situations that students bring in, but that is the only thing I think the school needs to work on. Other than that, the teachers are helpful, there are plenty of activities, no matter what you are into, and students have the opportunities to take college level classes and earn college credit senior year. This school is character building and I wouldn't be the hardworking, open minded college student I am today if it wasn't for this school.

We enrolled our daughter in this school after much consideration...we never regretted our decision. The administrators, teachers, counselors, and most coaches were terrific. Since our other children attended private high schools, we can honestly say that its curriculum & teaching staff are comparable.

My son is a 18 and a senior. He doesn't want me to see his grades so he has told the school that I am not to get a copy of his grades. The school agrees with him and says he is an adult. I think this is a horriable rule and it should be changed.

This school is one of the greatest schools I have been to. This school has great teacher and staff. I would recommend this school to anyone who is moving to rantoul and going to high school.

Not impressed at all. I received a letter from school welcoming students that had spelling and grammatical errors. I sent 2 sons to the school, they thought it was too easy. They informed me that if you can read you are considered one of the smart kids. Lots of violence and crime.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) to test students in grade 11 in reading, math and science. The PSAE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
