The teachers at Randall High School are devoted to the students success. They put so much work into helping students achieve their goals. If a student is struggling and a teacher notices, the a teacher will take control and make the best of the situation. I've never been to a school that invest in YOUR future, not just theirs!

There is a wide range of clubs and organizations for most every interest- from bowling to fandom club, students can join or create almost a group of people with similar interests. Students tend to be more involved with athletic clubs, but organizations such as Student Council, Health Occupation Students of America, and Key Club are popular among nonathletic, and sometimes people do both. Many clubs such as bowling, HOSA, and Student Council offer the chance to compete, some at the regional, state and even national levels. The school administration encourages student and faculty involvement in clubs and after-school activities.

All in all, the administration does a great job in creating a good environment for everyone to go to school. The principal is very involved in student organizations, or at least his heart is in the right place, participating in announcements daily and trying his best to support every school club, sport, and organization. Guidance councilors can be hard to find, but are extremely helpful when needed. Office staff members are cordial, but there are much more qualified individuals.

School policy toward dress code, bullying, and other controversial policies is very politic. Zero-tolerance on dress code (girls and shorts are a "huge" problem) and bullying create an environment that isn't distracting or unsafe. Waiting for everyone to forget about an offense and going on the way life was before a bunch of hormones get in the way of a good pep rally is about as controversial as it gets.
