Posted April 06, 2015 - a parent I ran and served on the school board because I was concerned with scores in some of the schools. RFHS is a pretty good school considering we are in Texas which somewhat lags the nation in education. There is a fair amount of turnover most of the teachers are caring and helpful. My son went through the schools here and recently graduated from UT and will be going to law school. A child can get a good education here.

I have a freshman at Rockport H.S. who is in all Pre-AP classes. There are no books, no book reports, haven't had any field trips. Way too many half days. They pull kids out of school around 2 p.m. for sports tournaments making it difficult to catch up on classwork. Several assignments are not even graded. I think the teachers are doing the best they can with a weak administration and a majority of parents who look at school as a babysitter.

The school offers advanced placement and dual credit courses. There are multiple extracurricular activities, and groups for students to join. The teachers are very professional. The counseling staff works very hard to accommodate students and their needs and questions regarding post-secondary education..

RFHS is a wonderful school with caring teachers, staff and administrators. The teachers and staff work very hard to make sure all of the students meet their potential. My child is excited everyday to go to school to see her teachers and her friends.

My child is a senior this year and has had issues with college prep. Fortunately we started early and knew what to expect and the timelines to meet. Our child was under a great deal of stress trying to complete the applications without guidance. The councelors have a meeting with parents/child during this year to make sure the senior is completing applications and FAFSA forms! Too late if you want early decision. This all should be done during the junior year so the senior knows the timelines if they don't already. They also push hard for CCA&M, UT and A&M but if there are other colleges of interest they know nothing about them to help with applications. This is unfortunate since there are many colleges with there own financial aid to offer, scholarships and alumni funding.

as a former student and now attending college, I can tell you that the school system does not prepare the student for college and I had to learn how to fill out admissions and apply to college without the help from any school official. At the time I was 16 looking into my future. I would not recommend this school.

It seems like the district only cares if the children are in school till 10 am to be counted for so they get there money . Why are there no school books? Where does all the money go? The school does not supply school supplies the parents have to.

The principal does not back up the teachers. The only sport that matters is Football. They need more tennis courts. Kids get way to many half days. Mostly for football games. This school needs all new people in the administrative department and new principals.

Rf high school is awful. The administration is a disgrace. Drugs and violence is rampant and the admin does not seem to care enough to do anything about it. Bad behavior is ignored.

Discipline at the high school is pretty non existant. Many required reportings of assaults and dangerous conduct is not reported or acted on in a proper manner as to avoid the state calling this high school a dangerous school. Teacher turn over around 30% per year. Administration at the high school turn over is 20+% a year. While this may look like it is a high school problem this is a directive from the superintendent. I believe if the pricipals were left to run their schools in the manner they saw fit these problems would not exist. Recommendation is; this was once a superior school. It will again be one but not until current top administration is replaced and teacher turnover is stopped. This will allow the superior teachers the right to control their classroom and the will feel loyal to a school and then again it will be a superior school.
