This is a great school. Teachers are fair. Math departments and social science is something to be proud of here. This school, though, has its dirty secrets. For one, the principle doesn't take any responsibility and doesnt follow the rule of, 'dont judge a book by its cover '. He's not one to hold grudges but as soon as something goes on in the halls,up stairs, he wont be afraid totake the the whole upstairs into detention or suspension. I personally think he does'nt know what he's doing. I say that if we got a principle who actually cares about wat goes on in school and doesn'nt hide behind his desk, the students, staff and school would be happier. Thats not to say the staff or administration is bad. V.P does exellent work and staff and students are great. Year 2010
I believe since there is new leadership in the school you can see a very obvious transition in the culture of the school. My child is now a senior and I can honestly say that the assistant principal has made RHS a safe and accountable school. His desire to truly care about kids has enabled the school to be one of the best in NM. My child plays sports but is also very involved with academics. I am very pleased with RHS.
You have to go to a good quality public high school in another state to realize how substandard the academics are in Ruidsoso High School. I am not kidding when I say that it has the educational equivalency of an ok middle school elsewhere. I attended both Ruidoso High School and a High school in Colorado. Its shocking.
