The school has drastically changed since 2008 and before, I only saw one fight and that was between two people who hated each other anyway. The school has good staff, food is about average, teachers are helpful, and students seem to ignore you; which is better than them hurting or insulting you. Sports isn't the schools strong point, the football team is alright; but the other sports teams are average at best. The school does seem to have a drug problem, not selling but general usage is common place. One major problem with the school is the lack of budget that it is, the computers are old and slow; and the school doesn't even have TV's in any of the classrooms. The school is 3/5, and is worth going to if your looking to graduate.

The review posted May 19th was totally correct. School is terrible. Kids are always dancing around acting like idiots. It's hard to concentrate in class. Worst high school you could go to. I remember watching shows when I was little. I thought High school would be fun. This school sucks.

Randolph high has gone through some drastic changes since 2008 when it was almost taken over by the state. Randolph high, MCAS scores have increased over the past few years. As a recent graduate 2013. The first few years where difficult with issues the school had to deal with. My Junior and senior year wad much better. If it was not from the support I would have never achieved what I did at the school. I am dissapointed that I will not be attending the school with the new principle Michael Allen. He is an author of a great book "Two Faces of Education". Mr Allen has turned around Boston schools and I know he will be a welcomed face in Randolph.

I am a junior and we have no math or spanish books. The teachers show you YouTube videos instead of actually teaching. I have a sub at least once a day because the teachers never come to work. They dont care about you or your education at all and barely even return your graded assignments. Administration is overzealous and think they run the place but are doing a terrible job as seen from our ranking of 278/344 in the high schools in MA. Students are dancing and screaming and fighting in the classrooms. The food is inedible and yet you aren't allowed to even get your parents to send you real food during lunch without getting suspended. They target all the wrong kids when dishing out punishments. All in all this is a useless high school and I am glad I am leaving after this year. Its really a shame since Randolph is a great town in every other aspect...send your kids to private school or you'll regret it.

This school has done so much to turn around. There is no violence at this school. The students for the most part are articulate. They need to crack down on the students that do not live in the town and send them back to their town and complete their education. They have be recognized by Harvard University. They did very well on the MCAS my brother attends school at Randolph. He does homework every night and is very involved. Parent involvement is improving as well. The person that made the comment about the school being horrible must not have children attending the school. Just because the majority of the student body is black does not make them bad. They are very nice kids, and not to forget teenagers. This school will be a 10 if they keep on they way they are at this time.

As with all parents,we were concerned about our child's education. We had enrolled him in a private school, but he refused to go. In retrospect, that was the best thing that could have happened. He graduated with honors from Randolph High School. It is hard to compare schools, but Randolph High has an enthusiastic principal and good teachers. It is an above average school.

I believe that Randolph High School was a great to start with as I matured. There is so much diversity here and how people say the school is violent, simply isn't true. I'm the past three years that I've been here, i haven't seen a single gun or knife. Heck, I never even saw a fist fight my life. The teachers really care for you, staying after school everyday. I got a 5 on my AP exams, so people can't say students who go here are stupid.

very unsafe, horrible progress, teachers and staff that have simply become use to the horrific behavior of some students. Violence is extreme, gang relations are bad. Overall a very good school to avoid at all costs!

Randolph High School gives you so much. I am a junior currently at this school. Society says that this school is bad with gangs and violence. It is nothing like that. The staff here is one of the best. The reason is that they care for you. They care for how well you do. If you need help, you can see them after school and get the help you need. There is so much to offer here, too. They have AP Courses, Honors, and L2. Just because there is about 5% of the 'bad' people here doesn't mean the whole school is. I am in AP and Honors class and in my opinion, everyone here is hard working. Here at RHS, you will get the attention and skills you need to succeed in this diverse country.

I loved this school. Everyone basically knew each other and there were no such things as the types of cliques we see in regular high schools. People came out of this school as very confident and strong individuals. I'm in college and people are AMAZED by the amount of culture I have, because of the things I leared form this school. schoolinto this school.

Well after reading all the comments, I must personally say that R.H.S. could not have been of a better start for my life. I learned so much with this school. People or some parents shall I say only look at how low in budget the school is but then they were at fault for that. When the vote for the town came on giving this school some money everyone agreed but when they found out that it involved increasing taxes? it was definitely out of the question to give the school some money.So what happened? Apparently some parents want more money for the school but no sacrifice so why the complaining? Dont complain if you didnt approve of the tax increase! Getting out of that subject I must say my experience in RHS was the best of the best ever. I 100% approve. Take it from a Class 2005 Graduate !!

My daughter transfered out of a 'well' to do school on the north shore in her junior year. Big decission for her, she knew not a teacher or a student. My daughter had a tough first month. But i must tell you, she has great friends and great teachers. That not only want respect from students, but they also give respect to students. Mr. Conard the princable for the last two years cares about each and ever student. Not just because they are a school 'jock' or they are in the top of their class, or a 'trouble' student like some school i am familar with. But he and his staff care because they want to see all their students do well. I am so greatful for randolph high.

This is not a good school.If your child is an a student they will do fine. but if he stuggles in school then don't sent your child there. They talk alot about safety but do nothing.

My daughter is an honors student, and is proud of herself, as I am proud of her. She is involved in the Spanish club, the Peer Leadership Program, and Basketball. This will be her senior year, and she is not too happy with the new dress code, nor am I having to buy her all new sweaters because the school is so cold in the winter! Unfortunatley there have been some incidents, but that happens most anywhere in America. There are students who come from outside of Randolph and they are the ones who ruin the school. Overall, it's a good and safe high school. I had to call because there was no soap in the bathrooms, but it was addressed quickly. Remember, we just had a teacher who won a $25,000 bonus from the Milliken foundation, for being a great teacher! I don't believe test scores make a child's education!

Considering the amount of funding, the school runs remarkably well. The level of education that a student recieves depends on the individual student, one could recieve a top-notch education with enough effort.

I think that one too many people stand on their soap boxes and condemn this school but they dont know the first thing about it. Education is the same everywhere around the world. A math book in randolph that says 2=2=4 is the same as any book anywhere else. It is up to the individual student to grapple with the prospect that they could either take the incentive to work hard and learn something or sit there are waste in a school for 8 hours. True, the school is not perfect, but what school is? The education here in fine, its exceptional if the student take the certain advantages offered but there still things that need rectfying.

I don't think this school is horrible if you are a parent you need to assist your child in school. Teachers are there to help if you child wants help you can not teach a child that does not want to be teached. I am a student there and the children are out of control parents who do not go to the school during school hours can not even comment i feel bad for teachers who can't teach because the students are such a distraction.I am a senior this year graduating 2006 and i love the school and the teachers teach very well.I am not saying this is the best school but it is good from for a public school.

This school is a dead end school. As a Prent/Guardian, I never seen a school that bad in my whole life - Computers are broken - No discipline - Principal and Vice proncipals do not care.
