Rolla High School has well educated teachers and spends time with the students. High School is tough no matter where you go, it all depends on the quality of teachers teaching the students.

The school district has a long tradition of paying a lot more attention to the ""smart" kids, leaving the dumb kids to fend for themselves. This is mainly tthe result of Rolla being home to the Missouri University of Science & Technology, a world class engineering and hard sciences colleges. The professors have a strong influence on how their kids are educated, which is great. But the kids whose parents are not so academic, must work at getting the attention they need.

Rolla High School has the distinction of being a Blue Ribbon School -- but only for achievers. They like to keep their Special Education students out of sight and isolated from the 'normal' students. Their Spec. Ed. teachers and director set low goals.

This school does not integrate and promote tolerance of diversity among its students. There are some excellent teachers there but the infrastructure of the building is in decay..except for the glorious sports fields. They have plays and music concerts in the dilapilated gym or borrow the middle schools auditorium. The principal does not listen or embrace ideas for change.
