I am currently a student at this school and enjoy it... I am on the cross country team and feel like I do belong! Although the lack of foreign languages is disappointing (Spanish and sign language...seriously?!) I have had good and bad teachers but they were all good people!

This is an unorganized campus with an overcrowded commons area when you first enter, where all grade level students stand and walk and jump about, and mingle, but do not seem to be watched at all. The students come and go through doors I'm sure they are not supposed to be using. They have one school psychologist that runs IEP meetings on at least three campuses including the high school and it's the same with the resource room teacher who duals as the only student counselor for several schools, over 1300 students! I have yet to meet an official general education teacher, although I've been there eight times, and for more than two hours each visit. I've many para type educators. The school needs to hire more student counselor professionals, and more persons capable of running an IEP meeting. I'd say the frequency of students in the hallway is an indicator something is not right. I have never seen a Principle in the lunch room, or hallway, or main office. Safety is certainly an issue as students come and go without the use of a metal detector, not wise in gun loving rural Texas. I'm just worried about what appears to be a lack of adult supervision and student free 4 all!

A great place to prepare for college. Full slate of AP classes and well trained teachers in all of them, Ended up with 30+ hours of credit from AP courses in Calc, Physics, History, English, Chemistry, Biology, Govt & Economics. Great music and theatrical program as well.

This school has had problems with drugs and fighting in the halls. One incident was so severe, my teen was afraid. The other teens have complained of bullying and no response from admin

The school altogether is average, but lacking in a few sectors. The foreign language department for example has only one foreign language which is Spanish. What about the other students who want to learn the most universal European languages like French and German? Too much attention is given to athletics which is not that important. So maybe one or two athletes get a scholarship, the other football champs learn how to pump gas because no attention was given to academics. The only honor club present at Randall is Key Club, no National Honor Society, and no International Clubs either. The campus is also filled with litter due to the lack of student care for their campus. The school needs help.

I graduated from Randall in 2004, and when I came to college, I felt pretty behind compared to most people in my class. My teachers at Randall were great, but I find the overall leadership of the administration and the board somewhat lacking. When I was there, the AP program and foreign language department were both kind of a joke...we watched The Price is Right every day in AP Economics. I'm glad I had this educational experience to compare to my college experience, but it's hard to catch up at a good university unless you're a real self-starter.

RHS is a good school. Many academic programs available along with clubs, sports, music, etc. My daughter enjoys attending RHS. The only problem I have with RHS and CISD is the money waisted on the new cafeteria set. It is money that should have been use to develope a healthier lunch program.

Randall High School is just plainly a great place to learn. The teachers Care about their students and are serious about their job. This year we won district dominating all the other competitors. They have great teachers, great facilities, and I am proud to be a student there.
