I really enjoyed how many opportunities were offered to students. I believe it is up to each child to make the choices about what they are involved in and the parent's to support that decision. I know that I had many options as to extra-curriculars as far as sporting, clubs, and music/theater go. As for the academic side, I thought if as a student you respect the teacher they will respect you back. The teachers are very caring and understand as to students having things come up and having lives outside of school you just need to let them know. You are able to obtain a quality education from RTHS, you will just have to want it. While obtaining this you will also gain a better understanding of various cultures through the amount of diversity here. I know that many people think RTHS is horrible, but it really is not as bad as one might think. There are some amazing people that walk through those halls.

RTHS lacks leadership from administration. They do not hold students accountable for their actions, therefore respect for others is never learned. This is portrayed from the classroom to sports and many events. Academically, I get the impression the kids are just pushed through, just so RTHS meets standards. There is never any homework, which I guess is a good thing considering the kids are not allowed to bring their (outdated) books home.

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.
