The last of my three children graduated last spring and I believe that any child can get a good education here if their parent(s) get involved, get to know the staff and faculty and be willing to provide their child with extracurricular learning opportunities. There are some exceptional teachers at RCHS especially in the music (band) program which is among the best in the country. The current dress code may be too restrictive but over the past few years it had become commonplace to see girls dressed like they were ready to report to work at Hooters. Some limits are necessary if parents can't or won't take care of it.

I am a sophmore at RCHS. i think that they are begining to treat us more like prisoners than students. I am an A\B student, so i do learn things here, but i do not like being treated as though i have done something wrong when i haven't. they lock the bathrooms so that we cannot go during class unless we sign out with our teacher and the office, and only during breaks if the teacher assigned at the time remembers to unlock them. also the new dress code, they are forcing it way to much. the vice principals are forced to come into class and make us stand up to so that they can check our clothes. i dont think you should be punished for not having jeans without a fray on the bottom where they were too long when you got them!

As a current parent and former student I feel confident in saying Dr. McGriff has changed this school. RCHS is an average school with average experiences and average expectations. It has the ability to be so much more. Little parent envolvement, little student voice, a lot of I don't care. No field trips this year, strick dress code going beyond a structured uniform code. Total Obamaized school. The school motto schould be "Let them think we are listening, they will never know we are not." Due to small town politics and popularity, the teachers are as average as the education. This school needs to seek out and embrace difference in order to become a better school.

I hate this school. I went there and all they cared about were teaching us discipline, nothing on education or anything else. please try and fix that and you might have more students who want a better life for themselves. make classes interesting!!!!!

I attended this school for four years and all I have to say is that its a good school. I graduated in 2003. Jody McCloud was a good principal maybe not the excellent but he did his best. Its a good school and when I have children I hope they are so lucky to attend a school like this.

My daughter attended RCHS in 2005. Cafeteria was the best building at RCHS. Very much liked her counselor. My daughter also has disabilities and felt that they did not work well with her did not take the time to explain things where she could understand them. Like the small school size. Liked that you could walk outside to get to the different class rooms and as Jr & Sr. you could go off campus for lunch.

Im currently a junior here. Its not a bad school, though it has some major issues, namely the new super intendent. Aside from that, it has a very laid back atmosphere, and has many extra-curricular acitivities, such as sports and clubs. The best part of the school though, is the teachers. This school is full of them, like Mr. Suites, Mr. Keylon, and Mr. Young. If theres any one reason to send a student here its for the teacher quality.

I attend Roane County High School, and I must say that most of the teachers, classes offered, and other opportunities have been excellent. However, there is another issue that must be considered. Bullying has become a serious issue at Roane County High school.

I graduated from this high school in 1999. I am now a licensed teacher myself. I intend on moving back to Tennessee and sending my own children to this high school. People can say all they want to about the principal or the board of education or any other excuse they have about why the school has had some issues over the past 2 years. But from experience I can tell you it starts at home. Learn to control your own children that way the teachers job is easier. You can't make a 16 year old child learn to follow instructions or rules if they have never been told to do so. I am very pleased with the teachers at this school. They helped me realize I wanted to be an educator myself. Thanks so much!

My son has just completed his sophmore year at Roane County High School and I am happy to say that I have been very pleased with several of the teachers. My son has a learning disability and is in special ed for English, however, he is in regular classes for everything else. Not only did his English teacher go above and beyond in addressing my sons needs (and my own concerns) but also took the initiative to act as the communicator between parents, student, and the other teachers that my son had. From this effort, my son was fortunate enough to have an algebra teacher (Mr. Friddle) that came up with some simple and creative ways to best teach my son. I applaude the school, and especially Mr. Ardisson and Mr. Friddle for their outstanding contributions to my sons education.

I am not a parent, however I did attend RCHS for 4 years. I thought that overall my education there was wellspent and I had many quality learning opportunities. And yes the Latin program is wonderful. I took part in that for three years. Most students would be greatful to attend a school such as RCHS. They offer many classes that benefit most students wishing to pursue higher education. Also, there is practically no violence and a zero tolerance drug policy. It is a safe environment and I would send my children in the future to this school.

This school is not a good school for children with any type of learning disability. This school is known for 'weeding' out the 'problem' children, rather than helping them. My son will absolutely not attend this school.
