This school is not as friendly as the other school in town. It lacks administration and the school board at west is much better. Teachers are both good and bad at both schools but the friendly and family oriented atmosphere at West makes it a better learning environment for the students. If you are transferring from another school, my advice would be to go to West as they are more welcoming and it will be easier to acclimate to that school. RHS is too snobby and the kids lack respect and class.
This school suffers from severe overcrowding. My daughter complains of close to thirty students in each class, we will likely be moving her to west next year.
The school is coming out of a dark place with bad publicity and some bad leaders from years back. The school came up 2 letter grades on the State scoring system from a D to a B and will continue to prosper in my opinion. The community continues to be divided by the two separate school systems which is a detriment to the kids as one school system would be wonderful for everyone except for the administrators who stand to loose their high paying jobs as well as power and control... According to police, Robertson has far less calls to the campus than what West Las Vegas High does. I am a happy parent with the education my child is receiving here.
I actually have a question to other parents and teachers and students, we will be moving to the LV area and I would love some feed back on the schools if I could, would be soo helpful I have highschool and middle school students. Please give some information. Thank You
Very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very Great school
Excuse me. Teacher. Teacher! Wait. DONT HIT ME! Can i go to the bathroom? Cheese my knees.
The school focuses on nothing but athletics. The school's freshman are in a separate building called the Freshman Academy, it is very small, poorly run (in the men's bathroom, only one of the stalls has a door, and the soap dispenser and the wall between the urinals has been ripped off by a student, about 5 months ago. The district cannot replace teachers, as soon as one retires (which the district is forcing) it takes months to get a new one and if that teacher is in the main building (grades 10-12), they will get a teacher from the Freshman Academy to replace him/her, while the Freshman get a sub, and this will last for months on end. Freshman have NO rights, you can't go off campus, you can't buy from the food vendors that come here, you can't take college credit classes. Not to mention all the scandals that have happened here. Go to West.
Teh academics at Robertson are Lacking, The school focuses on sports and silly things like dress code rather than spending some time trying to educate us.
It seems that the problems written here about RHS are stemmed from parenting issues, not the staff. If students are ditching, getting into fights and dropping out, then what are the parents doing to discourage this. Teachers can only do so much. I have a son and a nephew who are RHS graduates. Both have done very successful in post secondary endeavors thanks to the teachers and staff of RHS. Remember the school can only do so much, parents need to take responsibility and parent. Don't expect the school to teach work ethic and morals, they can try but I has to come form home.
Not only are the academics very poor the administrative staff is poor run. I had to wait almost 2 months for Robertson to transfere my son's reocrds. I am still waiting and today finally contacted the principal. I am not sure why everything at Roberston has the mentality of 'tommorrow'. Maybe that is why the kids also have that mentality.
Robertson High School, as we all know, does have its problems. However, do not forget that this school, despite all the odds, did, in fact make AYP last year. This means that there is something going right at RHS. The wrestling team just achieved another state championship!! The MESA group has won several state titles and awards. FFA and BPA are repeatedly placing in the state and national competitions. The new mariachi group, which has only been together for two years, sounds like a professional group. They are phenomenal. That, my friends, is only a taste of all of the positive things at RHS. More teachers than not work diligently to prepare their students for life beyond high school. My children are graduates of RHS and one attends currently. She is an honor roll student, is challenged, and will be fully prepared for college!!! Thank you RHS and teachers!! A grateful
For the most part, the administrative staff is not interested in helping students find solutions. They are more likely to encourage a student to drop out than to help the student find solutions to their academic problems.
RHS is an open campus school. From a parents point of view I can see how that seems like a bad thing. However, having an open campus isn't RHS' problem, especially since campus is isn't official open 'til after fourth mod. If students are going to ditch, they will ditch whether they are allowed to or not. The problem is a majority of the teachers don't care to teach. If students were challenged they probably wouldn't consider ditching as often. Buy hey, it's HighSchool, how many people can honestly say that they had the time of their life in class? HighSchool isn't just about going to class, it's about finding yourself. I have a friend who went to from RHS to a school in Florida, he said that RHS was much more challenging. Overall RHS isn't that bad. It doesn't deserve the bad biased rep it's been given latley
I am a student at RHS and I must say that this school is all about sports and not about education. There is problems of fighting ditching class and coming to class late. This school needs to change.
RHS leaves alot to be desired in providing a good education. It seems to be on a par with many schools in NM, however, in that they are all poor academically. The school has an open campus, which promotes an environment of not taking school seriously. There is a major problem with children 'ditching' classes and coming in tardy. Unfortunately, as this is a small town, there really isn't much of an option as the only other high school is even worse.
