The person that said 'Randleman High School...is the greatest thing in the universe' just proves to you how little exposure these kids in North Carolina get. Academics here barely meet the requirements for 'Basic'.
I attended Randleman High from 2002-2006, and my experience there was alright with friends, but the teachers and staff were, for the most part, just not interested in their jobs. Just like out of every school, there were the few that really cared about the kids and their education. I can remember multiple classes that my teacher literally did not have a lesson plan for the day. We would just sit and talk, goof off, and do nothing. Other classes had teachers who would spend the whole class focusing on who to write up and who to send to the office. It just got old. I wouldn't send my children to this school. I would choose a school that is in a more cultured place. The chorus teacher, Ms. Anne Shirk, is definately a shining star in that school. I hope she moves on to a more appreciating school!
I use to go to this school and I love it I would go back if i could but only for my junior and senior year. There are some really good teachers there a few come to mind but the main teacher that makes that school would be the chourus teacher I would have to sat.
To start I attended Randleman High and really enjoyed the school and the teachers were wonderful. I now have 2 kids in the High School and I am not saying it is perfect, which no school is, but they love it and the teachers that my kids have had are wondreful. I have also worked in the Asheboro City Schools and the High School have a lot of problems (with the students) they can not handle. I have told my kids that I rather have them at Randleman than the city schools. Randleman really does not have the violence that everyone thinks, I have seen it at Asheboro High and I know it is everywhere. But I am very pleased with Randleman High. I don't feel they get the respect they deserve from everyone even from the Randolph County Board, they just look over the School,like they have no concerns.
Randleman High School is an average school. There is nothing spectacular about it. I would home school my child I could.
Randleman High School is the epitome of all things great and beautiful in the universe. I particularly enjoyed the spacious warm inviting cafeteria that also doubled as a gymansium for the cheerleaders after school (also was the home of many fights.) We have a beautiful campus that is brand new and lush with vibrant plants and greenery. The academic scholars that we call teachers (ie Williard Suttles and Shelma Hammond) are always there to brighten a students spirit and raise their self esteem. I take pride in our excelling athletic programs, even though we havent been close to going to a state championship game in decades. Students are constantley engulfed in the rich culture that Randleman provides. Many students from RHS go on to do great things and attend Ivy league schools. In general, RHS goes above and beyond the call of duty.
This school is the worst school in the county! I have a child that attends there but will not contiune to attend. The academics are horrible. Non challegning. The students who want to learn can't because the teachers are always having to deal with the students who disrupt and don't want to be there. I also have another child coming up but he will not attend there either. We will go to a private school or to another county. The Randolph County School Board should be ashamed!
I have 2 ninth graders at this school and am very unhappy with the way the day is taught. First the school is in a county that has no other options for educating your high schooler. The school throws all of the money that it raises to the football program (since the county gives very little to athletics) and the football team has not had a state ranked team since the 80's. If there is a PTO I have never seen evidance of it bettering the school. And we have a convicted felon as a student. I have no room to complain further.
My daughters graduated from Randleman High School and were in Honors classes. Their teachers were excellent! Both are upperclassmen at prestigious North Carolina colleges and are grateful for the dedicated teachers who prepared them well.
I don't see the school this way. I have a 15 year old in the school and the staff as well as Ms Smith has always work real well with me on all matters brought to their attention.
I used to be a student and now I'm a parent. The parking and getting in and out of the school is almost impossible. The principle has a chip on his shoulder all the time. The AD is always 1 step behind. I think they need to listen a little better. Without saying thats another parent complaining about something.
