As a former student ('13) , I have mixed feelings on this school. On one hand, there are so many opportunities. There are AP and honors classes, business classes that actually apply to the real world, after-school activities, and sports. If you get involved in a lot of things such as these, you will get a lot out of it. I also think that the majority of teachers care about their students, and want them to succeed. If you try, teachers are willing to help. As in any school, there has been a lot of budget cuts over the years. Some of the classes and activities that I enjoyed are now gone. Also, due to a lot of behavioral issues, I felt as if the school was "policed" a lot. Although teachers seem to care about their students, others automatically see teenagers as troublemakers. As an honors student who tried really hard in high school, this irked me. Overall, I'd say that Ketcham is a 4-star school.
This school is a really good school. The teachers are wonderful and they try to help students succeed! The principle is excellent and he works very hard to keep the students happy. I think anybody or any student who is apprehensive about this school is worrying too much. Trust me, this will be the best 4 years of your school career.
RCK is a great high school. Students are safe. Teachers are great. Many clubs and sports are offered.

This is the best school I've ever been to,there's such a wonderful sense of home here. The teachers are wonderful as well as the Principal, surrounded by people who will help you when you need it. I have many friends here and one very special friend who was shy before I met him, now we're really close friends looking forward to what else Ketcham has in store for us.
This is the worst school I have ever heard and attended. There are several problems ranging from the horrible condition of building and the even more worse student body.......
As the mother of a freshman, I was nervous. However, the teachers, guidance dept and principal quickly put me at ease. The teachers work hard to keep the students interested! Bravo!
My daughter attends this school. The programs are amazing and the teachers are excellent. Two thumbs up.
I graduated from RCK in 2001 and went on to join the Marine Corps. I have very fond memories of High School and a small part of me will always wish I could relive it. The teachers, for the most part, were very involved with the students and a couple I looked at as friends. I will never forget Mr. Lowery, my Social Studies and World at War teacher, was always my favorite. He made class fun and we all looked forward to the period we had him.
This is a very good school. Though it is not the richest or most expensive school, it is a truly unique learning experience and a place where many students each year, have graduated off to great colleges and universities.
I attended this school from 1991-1995. Over that period, I had noticed a change in the type of kids arriving at the school, mainly negative. A lot of this had to do with IBM's downsizing. I'm not sure what the climate is now since I have now moved away and live in another state. I will say that the teachers were generally caring, and were knowledgeable.
