    Overall Experience: I've enjoyed my experience at Randall High School so much, I would definitely choose to do it all over again. The teachers have been so helpful and understanding. I can tell they really care about my education. One of my favorite experiences is when I decided to join the soccer team. I was on the team for two years and I loved being able to play my favorite sport with my best friends and the coach was amazing; I was so sad when I had to quit because of medical reasons. I think something that makes Randall unique is the students and faculty in it. Everyone works together to make this school so enjoyable and everyone always has the best school spirit.

    Extracurriculars: We have sports and usually everyone who tries out makes it, but typically the ones who are not totally committed just quit showing up. Everyone is welcome to join though.
