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.
STEM school. Technology based. Flipped learning. Enthused administration and teachers. Helpful IT Director. Parents willing to chip in. Lunches brought in from outside vendors or food trucks ocassionally. Charter School. A+
Fantastic school. Teachers are caring and excellent educators, classes are small and hands-on. Love the flipped learning method for my child.
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.
This school has been wonderful for my daughter. The flipped learning has really worked out well for her. The teachers are excellent and go out of there way to help when needed. The small school environment is also a great plus.
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.
