I am not impressed with Rock Hill High School as communications with the school and teachers is sporadic at best. Even the apps and programs that a parent is supposed to be able to use to keep up with their child's assignments, grades and attendance don't work, are not utilized by facility, or end up with false entries. The only way a parent can keep up with what's going on is to be annoyingly overbearing to faculty and staff at nearly every turn. School policy changes that are made tend to lean toward making things more difficult, and communications about these are not concise nor succinct. If your child fails a class, they have "credit recovery" which is computer based to bring the students grade up to a "D" so that they may pass. The counselors push this as the preferred option instead of letting the student retake the class to go over the material again with an instructor. Applied Technology Center students (vocational) that have second half of the day class at ATC have to basically run to cafeteria have about 4 minutes to scarf down what they can then run to the buses or miss their ATC class(es) as the schedule stood for first part of the year then the school changes the three lunch schedule to a two lunch schedule which makes it even harder for these students to eat and make the bus. Also, lunch selection option are bad. Vending and canteen options are also bad. School office phones go to automated answer almost immediately after the day dismissal bell chime. So you better make sure your child has a cell phone. Which is actually reckless. As long as the school is open to school operations, this includes after school activities on campus, there should be the ability to reach faculty and/or staff by phone. Yet, this seems to have become fairly average procedure for middle and high school today. All in all, I do not recommend RHHS if you are looking at choosing a high school for your child.
I have had two children graduate from Rock Hill High School. They both have successful careers. I currently have a freshman there. I serve on the school improvement council. The school has a caring staff. It is important that parents are involved with their child's education. The school district has a great superintendent who is working to improve all of the schools in our district.
My school is okay. NOT handicap accessible, If in a manual wheel chair. The school spend money on things like golf carts(because the principals are to lazy to walk around) and the athletic department when we need more books/new books, new computers, new elevators, AND A LOT MORE. The teachers are pretty good. The Principals are decent. The counselors DON'T know how to do their jobs. If youre considering a rock hill school, South Points the worst. Northwestern is the best. Rock hill was the school I chose. I am no longer able to traverse the school therefore I am on homebound permanently, The school is good at making accomendations for students that need a 504, or IEP. Good Luck!
The policy changes implemented this year have been extremely positive. Previous reviews mentioned IDs and dress code which are district policies, not those of the individual schools. Overall, RHHS has a caring environment with teachers striving for academic excellence from students.
I am proud to be a RHHS teacher. We have great kids, committed teachers, and administrators who care about the kids. I teach social studies, and am proud to present challenging lessons that are standards-based (with real world application!) on a daily basis. Rock Hill High School is a great place to learn and thrive!
I really dislike RHHS i agree they are very picky about stupid stuff like the ids and lunch and tardys the school is pretty big and to many kids 6 mins is not enough to get to class on time I refraise that i HATE RHHS
Rock Hill High School was overcrowded and they pay too much attention to their atheletic department rather than their academics. The students their are overly disciplined on small issues like wearing the id cards at all times.
School is extremely overcrowded. when it comes down to lunch times for these kids, they wait forever in line and are left with only a few minutes to actually eat. I do believe that the teachers do an okay job but when they are forced to teach as many children as they have in one class, there is not much time for individual attention. Their school policies are extremely stiff. They have kids tucking in their shirts, they look terrible this way. Cell phone usage during school is not accepted or the phone will be taken away for over a week and they make the parent come get it.
