My son loves RTHS. He has been given opportunities that are quite challenging. RTHS has taken my son to new level. He has participated in debate competitions, volunteering, robotics & business clubs. I have never seen him get the opportunities to grow in other wake county schools. He will be a junior in 2015-16. RTHS is a STEM school, and I have not seen this many AP options in Science and Math. I am sure RTHS will grow to be the top school in this area

Our second year at the school and my son loves it. After first year he remarked, "that was a great year, but I think next year will be even better!" Never heard that from my daughters who attended another Wake County public high school. Impressed with the teaching and administration. He's challenged but not overwhelmed. Counselors available for conferences and respond quickly to emails. This school does get better each year!

My son is a freshman at RTHS. I was nervous at first because the school had only been opened for a couple of years and I was worried all the kinks hadn't been worked out. However, we have pleased. The school is organized, all of the teachers are very approachable and organized. The classes are small and the idea of self-directed learning is a new concept that my son is embracing. The commute is long going from downtown Raleigh out to the Park but it's talk my son more life skills since he has to transfer buses. With free Wifi on TTA buses he's also been able to get work done during the commute. Athletics are great and the clubs have something for everyone. In short I could not be more pleased.

Love the school. The teachers are awesome. Teachers and staff respond to emails very quickly. The teachers are very encouraging and try so hard to make learning fun and enjoyable. Even though the school is new, I feel it runs like a well oiled machine. Couldn't ask for anything more...

My 9th grade boy is an average student who was getting lost in the big wake county middle and knew it would only get bigger with High school. The things I like about RTHS is that EVERY and I mean EVERY administrator is approachable and the takes the time to help either make my guy understand why the administrator did what they did or be in my child's corner for help with a teacher. The pros and cons are everyone knows everyone. My boy enjoys the small school atmosphere and that you can not melt into the back of the class, everyone has a voice. This being a new school there are bound to be hiccups, things that do not go to plan, BUT I like that, I like the thought that I am shaping this school into the model that all school will aspire to be. I am proud and love helping be a RAPTOR!

We have been thrilled with this school, we are so lucky our child got a spot. Small classes, flipped learning, lots of tech are just some of the high points. However the teachers are really what has been the best part of this school. It's a great mix of veterans and young teachers. They all know your child, are willing to talk, etc. IEP support and administrative support have been great as well. Doors are open to parents, emails get answered quickly. We love that the students can get really involved with things. It's such a nice change from Wake County middle schools. The sports programs are new but there is a lot of enthusiasm. Art and drama are fantastic. No question it is a challenging school, there is a high homework load but it's so varied the kids don't seem to mind it that much. The 9am start means they can stay up late to get through stuff and be ready in the morning.

RTHS is a fantastic example of the flipped-classroom model of learning. Students use their personal devices daily to access "homework" videos and submit assignments. Teamwork, group project work, presentation experience and hands-on labs are used extensively and are valuable tools for our students.

My son is in his second year at Research Triangle High School and he loves being there. I've never heard him speak so highly of his teachers before, and he has been in both public and private schools. Besides all of the other wonderful things mentioned in the previous posts, I love the school's diversity. There is a very nice mix of students from various nationalities. There are also a lot of opportunities for involvement with all of the clubs that have been started: Robotics Club, Entrepreneurs' Club, Computer Club, and so on. I also appreciate that the teachers are willing to come in early or stay late to tutor those that need extra help. Any way you look at it, RTHS is a wonderful school.

RTHS has a summer program called SHARP, which is a partnership with UNC's Biomedical Research community. Participating students have the opportunity of spending three days in the summer on the research campus of UNC Chapel Hill, getting a behind the scenes look at the life of a scientist and cutting edge research. SHARP participants engage in hands-on lab activities, interact with scientists, learn about college opportunities and careers in science, and have lots of fun. There are a limited number of participants in order to keep the interaction with the scientists personal. Selection is based on student application (including an essay) and teacher recommendation.

Research Triangle High School has opened a new door for my son. I have seen him excel and grow personally. The staff is top notch and each has a unique background. There is passion within these teachers that I have not seen in a long time. The student body is very diverse but they work in groups getting them ready for the real world. Great STEM program. Flipped learning. Use of the internet and computers is encouraged.
