An amazing school that I have attended for four years. I went to a large public middle school and had a pretty bad time of things. After coming to RCHS, I have found a group of people I love and have become confident in myself and my abilities. This is an amazing school that shapes amazing people. Take advantage of this opportunity to recieve a public education that goes above and beyond that of even some private schools.

This school is great I am currently enrolled at this school and I love it. The other student are nice, the teachers are a big help, and I think that this school is better than most public schools I have been to.

Great school. They need a better dress code. The dances are full of young childern doing very inapropriate things. On the good side the teachers are great, and the parent involvment is the best I have ever seen.

This school is fantastic. Newsweek rated it one of the top 10 High Schools in the entire United States. It has no discipline problems. Many of its teachers have advanced degrees and industry experience. The principal and staff are innovative and very accomodating of parents and students. It has very strong parental involvment and a very motivated student body. It offers lots of advanced placement classes. Small size permits teachers to get to know their students and to help them excel in academic interests. I have 3 kids in this school. My children and I are completely satisfied with the opportunities it provides. In terms of SAT scores, this school is the best public non-residential school in North Carolina.

This a a great school for a student who wants strong academics and is willing to study. The standards are high and the teachers are dedicated. The students are motivated and there is no stigma about being the smart kid. We find the size to be a real plus. The teachers know the students and the students know each other.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
