Don't let the official statistics of this school fool you! It is a newly opened school with fantastic energetic teachers and great leadership. Everything is tailored to have your child succeed and enjoy learning. My son occasionally without any previous mentioning starts saying how awesome his school is. The cool things they learn in such an interesting way. This school is the definite way to learn and educate the youth.
Please don't listen to negativity about Charter schools. RTHS is the absolute best choice for High School if you live in the Triangle. From the stunning new building to the caring staff, you cannot beat the experience your child will have at Research.
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...
