The assistant principle brakes school dress code more than the students do, the teachers don't follow rules assigned by the state, when their is a fire drill/Marshall there, they take down and cover up things that brake code, the list goes on and on. Many teachers have scored very low on teaching scores and when the majority of the whole grade level fails by that teacher, the said teacher assumes a new position instead of being fired or made to take additional classes to be able to teach what needs to be taughted. Our literacy rate is 1, but our football team is #2 in the nation... Now tell me where does their dedication stand? Many teachers care, but the principles/head of the school does not have any leadership capability. A very sorry excuse for a high school

This school is average at best. They are trying to improve but have a long way to go. Parents definitely need to be more involved.

I just finished Freshmen year at this school, and it has been an amazing experience here at Rhea County. :D The teachers are very helpful, detailed, and funny. The students here are very friendly and have a lot of school spirit when it comes to sports. We have the unique "hour lunch" where the students have a whole hour to socialize, workout, and pig out on our pizzas :) I can't wait for what Sophomore year has to offer here :D :D

I think RCHS is a wonderful school. Most of the teachers are dedicated to their jobs and are wiling to help students by coming in early or staying late to tutor them. I am a graduate from RCHS as well as my oldest. My youngest is currently attending RCHS, so I have experienced several years with the school. I do wish that they offered more vocational programs and classes such as drafting. There are may wonderful programs available for students at RCHS. Parental involvement is no where what it should be. These kids need to know they are loved and cared about.

This school is accelerating in every area compared to several years ago. I am a new teacher here, but I also graduated from here in 1991. The teachers are highly qualified. There is a new 1 hour lunch program that enables students to attend tutoring, writing workshops, guitar playing, singing, intramural tournaments, Christian prayer groups and clubs, just to name a few. The curriculum director works beyond the mandatory to ensure that RCHS is now competitive with all other high schools. Data is required now by all departments as far as the writing and other test scores of students. This helps administration and teachers to identify target areas and students that need further instruction or differentiated instruction. School is the cleanest...in a beautiful rural area, and parent involvement is increasing!

The academic programs are of good variety. There is a wonderful music program, but would like to see more art come through. Extracurricular activities are well rounded for the teenagers. Need more parent involvement.

My son is a senior at this school and after taking honors classes and dual enrollment classes, I can only pray that he will actually be prepared for college level work. The band was the best aspect of his high school career. I would rate this school a '3' at best for quality of programs. Most students are quite content to get by with as little as possible, school is called off very frequently for any possible excuse. I will be glad when he goes to college & can be in a different environment. Parents definitely show up for all sporting events & band activities but the halls were totally empty for teacher conferences.

My son attends Rhea County High School. I was a little afraid he wouldn't like it because it is bigger than the other school he went to but he loves it. The teachers are all nice, the school is clean, and although there are drugs in a lot of schools, our school is doing its best to KEEP THEM OUT! There are also a lot of after school activites for the kids to be involved in as well.

This school has really changed for the best. It prepares you more now for college than it did and that's great.
