The lack of communication between teachers, administrators and parents is unsatisfactory. The school assumes that there is internet in every home and parents don't need paper information sent home. The drug and bullying problems in this school are far beyond what is considered normal for any school. I honestly don't know how students continue to excel with their education, that hasn't been our experience at all. I'm glad my son will not be attending for his final years of high school.

For the area Roscommon is a fine school. I went there for 2 years and thought it was okay. However recently I moved to a school that is just so much better. I can't even believe how much I've improved in sports and self-discipline. RHS does not teach kids self-discipline and integrity (since there is almost no homework in every class except for a few) and is not the greatest atmosphere for a kid to grow up in, since the peers may not have the greatest influence on the kid.

I am currently attending this school. I have progressed a little faster then some of the other studentsin my grade and they have supported me all the way. The teachers re wonderful, they allow your child to get on-on-one time if they need help on anything. I strongly reccomend this school to anyone wanting to go to a nice, peacful, neighborhood that you and your child will flourish and grow within.

RHS is the only school I can think of going to all four years. I used to think I wouldn't like it, that I'd rather go to schools downstate that are more...I don't know...expensive? Have more funding? The point really is, I was wrong. Funding or what the school has doesn't make the school a great school. I've been there almost a year now and to me the teachers make all the difference. We have some very competant teachers who can get you to pay attention to anything by the way they make the subject so interesting. I wouldn't dream of going to another school.

Roscommon High School is the best school around. There are endless opportunities if people simply want to look for them. The teachers genuinely care about the kids, and the academic expectations are high. I constantly hear other parents talk about how when their child went to college, they tested out of the basic courses, and even a college professor said that Roscommon students seldom if ever have to take remedial courses. My oldest daughter is at college right now and she is on the dean's list. When she first got there, she tested into higher level courses, and told me that they were almost too easy as she had learned the material at Roscommon. Overall, an excellent school. Many have tried to drag it through the mud lately, it seems, but it is just such an excellent environment that it will rise to the top again.

My daughter graduated from RHS two years ago. I read with dismay some of the reviews here as she was an honor student in HS and carries a 3.9+ GPA in college. RHS truly prepared her in every possible way to succeed at a college level. I would recommend this High School to any parent in the area. The teachers, staff and coaches have been nothing but supportive of her and share a great deal in her current success. Great School, Great Curriculum and Excellent Staff. Only down side, some parents make life difficult for the staff because they feel they know how to teach better than the professionals. Some parents need to 'stay out'.

As a recent graduate and current college student, I feel that Roscommon High School, as well as the entire GHSD, provided me with an education unmatched in the surrounding area. There are more opportunities for students at this school, such as AP and dual enrollment, than at any school its size that I am aware of. On more than one occasion I have been commended by professors due to my high school curriculum, and I was considered an average at-best student. If your child puts in no effort, he/she should not expect much in return, no matter where the attend school. Take advantage of these opportunites; there is no telling how long they will last with the current budget cuts, as students from surrounding districts are learning. It could always be worse.

Although i am not a parent of a child of roscommon high school, i am a recent graduate. It is in my opinion that roscommon school district lacks the oppurtunities to prepare student for the 'real world'. Very few of the acedemic programs are mentally challenging enough to prepare for college. There are a few good teachers who will do what they can to help a student along, but for the most part, most are very political and dont encourage students to work to their full potential. Students who excell are discouraged to take the extra steps to learn more. Although the sports programs are wonderful, it needs to be emphasized to administrators as well as students that there is more to life than sports. The principal, asst principal, teachers and counilors could definately use some work on good communication skills, especially those skills geard toward late adolescants.

I think that Roscommon High School is an excellent learning institution. It did a very good job in preparing me for the future. My guidance counselor was always there to assist me with anything I may have needed help with, and many of the teachers also acted as counselors in their own ways, so I always knew there was someone there to help me out with any problem I may have had. I felt very safe at the school, and I would definitely send my children there in the future.

While Roscommon High School is considered great for the area, it is by no means a good school. Students are not challenged enough and course materials are too easy for the students. The school does have some wonderful teachers, however, there are some who will not allow students to 'go at their own pace' when a student is excelling at a pace faster than the rest of the class. Roscommon High School is a sure way to get a 4.0 and participate in sports (other extracurricular activities are lacking except for Knowledge/Quiz Bowl). Compared to the schools in lower Michigan, this High School should receive a failing grade. If our children really are the future, we must give them the education they deserve so they do not flunk out of college after their first year.
