I graduated from RUHS in June of 2018. Going to Rock University prepared me for so much more in the world than a traditional high school would have. We would have these workshop days where people would come in and teach us how to file taxes, phone etiquette, interview techniques and tons of other stuff that we would need to know after high school. Another way RUHS prepared me for "the real world" would have been the types of classes and the way they were structured. Having the college based schedule kind of showed us what we could expect after graduation if we decided to go to college. With that we were also able to be a lot more independent. We had to learn time management and take responsibility for ourselves, by making sure we were on time to classes and getting our work done. Yes we were able to be independent, but if you ever needed anything all of the teachers were right there to help you.
RUHS prepares you for college better than other schools. You have to learn to keep up in your classes and be organized. They give you a lot of freedom and responsibility. That can sound scary but they give you a lot of support. The teachers and counselors have plenty of resources. They genuinely care. Every student is their top priority and they are here to help you anytime you need it. (Senior, Class of 2019)
I think RUHS has helped me not only grow academically, but personally as well. Our school gives students a chance to grow and learn in ways that other schools can't offer. Our school teaches a lot of life skills for the workforce and other areas of students' lives such as time management, effective communication, and responsibility. (Senior, Class of 2019)
Open campus and block schedules make the school day seem less long. RUHS prepares you for college, and grades are assignment based rather than test based. Some classes are worth one credit per semester! My advice is to enroll in RUHS. (Senior, Class of 2019)
RUHS is a great school that has great classes and of course great staff. Everyone at RUHS is super loving and caring. They are kind of like a family in a way. RUHS is a really great high school and I enjoyed every single year I spent here. (Senior, Class of 2019)
They (the staff) will do everything in their power to make you go above and beyond. This school is full of potential, the more you put into it the more you will get out. (Senior, Class of 2019)
Great school with a lot of resources. The school offers many opportunities that normal high schools can not offer. This school has an international theme as well as research driven. I recommend this for students looking to expand their research skills, and those who love different cultures. The school is able to challenge every student on a more one to one basis between student and teacher. The schedule is also unique and help prepare students for a university setting.
