It is wonderful to see that Round Rock has improved in the little time we have been attending. When we moved to Round Rock I was concerned that there wasn't a principle and that the score on this school was at a 6. Round Rock now has a wonderful Principle who connects with the students. He took time to shake hands with them during his first month. He seems to make everyone accountable from teacher to parents. Without the trio of Parent, Teacher, student working together, you can't expect a school to be successful. My son enjoyed ever teacher he has had. He says they joke around and have fun along with the lesson. He only complained about one teacher in Spanish who never attended class until testing time. Overall the teachers are wonderful. There is a lot of construction but it only shows signs of growth.
RRHS is an average school at best. While attending there a year ago, I found myself being placed in classes where they had to have another teacher in the class at all times to help the students who slack off get their diploma. The teachers do not really have the drive/passion to teach, they are just there because that is where they make money. Since graduating, I now attend UT Austin, and from a personal standpoint, RRHS did absolutely nothing to help prepare me for what UT has to offer. The classes are tough, and it just turns in to more studying for me. If you are looking to move to the area, I would recommend Westwood HS, or Mcneil HS. Both far exceed what Round Rock has to offer.
