Administration, faculty & staff treat all students with respect and love. The professional manor of each individual makes RHS the safe well respected school it is known for. I am very proud to say I graduated from RHS and currently have two children there.

Both myself and my husband graduated from RHS. We have 1 daughter graduated and 1 daughter still attending RHS. When purchasing our second home neither myself, my husband, or our girls would have considered moving from RHS school district. Great school/Staff! and Great Parents!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Course tests to assess students in reading, writing, math, science and history/social science subjects at the end of each course, regardless of the student's grade level. The SOL End-of-Course tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. High school students must pass at least six SOL End-of-Course tests to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
