The teachers aren't honest or fair. Hard to encourage something you aren't. I have had 3 teachers lie to me in 2 years. Because my child doesn't do much wrong. So they make stuff up since she stands up for herself. Which I have heard evidence of from outside parties .
These comments with the 5 stars obviously come from someone with an agenda. As they are untruthful. Old books, resentful petty, teachers and a rude dean for sure. I have had to deal with them for 2 years and to resolve the issue I've had to move as this is only high school in Rock Island. If anyone made it out of this school with honors and ambition, they had it before they came and fought tooth and nail to keep it while there.
I currently attend Rocky and this poor excuse for a highschool simply needs work, I dont know what the money is being put towards but they need better budgeting skills. The outdated books arent helping either. They should fire all staff here and rehire more qualified teachers.The students are pure lazy as a whole.
Rock Island High School has a large variety of students with caring professionals that are focused on making RIHS students the best they can be. Overall, a splendid school, staff, and student population to work with!
Rocky as it is known is an interesting educational experience. About two thirds of the teachers in Rock Island have their master's degrees and in some schools their Doctorates. Rocky is the primary public high school that serves Rock Island and boosts among other: one of best athletic programs in the state, an active community offering drama, speech, an excellent art department and a conscious about community. The number of students going on to become great citizens is too numerous to share, but if you are looking for some of the best teachers in science, art, music, social sciences, ESL, and physical education look no further. Did I forget math and English? For those who need that special assistance, counseling and the professionals in special services are great. The diversity of the student population represents an opportunity in culture, humanities and education from some of our graduates who play sports for top 10 academic powerhouses, national merit finalists or community leaders. My only hope for this great tradition of learning is that more stricter guidelines for student behavior are followed as the nation embarks on a new platform called Common Core.
I am currently going to rocky from Denver and this school is TERRIBLE don't come here you won't like it the academics are horrendous only 30 percent of the school pass the state testing DO NOT COME HERE.
Rock Island High School is by far the best choice in the area. It has the highest number honor graduates of all the other schools in the area. The staff is committed to bring out the best in their students. Very innovative with curriculum. A progressive school that thinks out of the box. I am a graduate of Rocky and proud of it.
