Rowlett High School is a big disappointment. My daughter is an outstanding student but is not able to get the classes she wants, the lunch food is horrible, and the administrators only care about the numbers. The counselors are no help with anything. If she wasn't a senior I would pull her out and let her test scores help a more worthy school.
This school is great! I love coming to school 99.9 % of the teachers and staff are amazing,and there ams many friendly students. On a rating from 1-10 the school its self would be a 7. The way this school could have a better ratting is if the bathrooms were better matemanceed, I walked in to two bathrooms where there was no toliet paper and there was trash on the floor. A way the school can get more attention is give the school a paint god and make it stick out as of right now the school looks really boring. An other way is to get teachers in the hall way to tell kids to get to class during passing periods OMG how I hate trying to get to class with the hallways so crowded that nobody can get threw
A great group of teachers and administrators run this school. The teachers communicate well with the parents and keep them informed about their student's conduct and grades. Some teachers even call just to say, 'Hey your kid is doing great, and keep it up.' They work with the student on any subject that they need with free after school tutoring and some classes even have online tutoring. School is dismissed at 2:30pm which is great for students with after school activities. The kids get done with their after school activities early enough, that they have time to complete their homework at a decent hour and spend time with their families. Before my son attended RHS, he wasn't able to get home on school nights, until after it was dark. At times he didn't get all his homework done until after 10pm. The district really thought about these kids when they set-up the schools' schedules. This school has the student's best interests in mind and they truly care about the kids and want them to succeed.
Rowlett High School. This school has no business being called a great school...a great prison maybe. The Rowlett police department runs this place and students are too often treated as inmates who have no rights. I wish I had known what bullies RUN this place.
Rowlett HS implements a trimester schedule instead of semester schedule which I like. RHS also uses exam exemptions based on grades as well as absences which helps to keep the kids motivated to attend classes. There is frequent communication from Faculty and Staff at the school.
They really seem to have it together, there efforts are always from the heart and I have to say Carol Little is outstanding and the Principle stays on top of everything which truly makes things run so smoothly they really do care about there students and there school!
Rowlett High School is a great school for any parent looking to put there child in that is well-controlled, clean and has a great education opportunity as well as a great group of well disciplined kids. We enjoy the sports activities as all of the town ralleys behind the kids!
Rowlett High is a great public school. Yes, sports are focused on a lot, but the choir & band are never left out & are always recognized. The principal is strict, but for all the right reasons. The school IS crowded but with free choice on school there's not much anyone can do about it. The dress code isn't as strict as it sounds. I got through Rowlett High with no problems at all.
