The Arts departments at my school are like no other.

I am in Marching Band as a color guard, and we have won many competitions. It really is like a family. The drive to succeed as a team brings us all closer together, and makes us depend on each other no matter what situation we encounter. We will go to Washington D.C. this year and March in the Cherry Blossom Parade.

The chorus went to New York City last year and performed in Carnegie Hall! I am an alto section leader and really enjoy the camaraderie that we all exhibit.

The Visual Arts Department is also AMAZING! Mr. Coffler is an excellent drawing and painting teacher. I have won two honor awards for works submitted in his class.

I am a student with a 4.0 who also enjoys the sciences at my school. The classes are filled.with experiments and hands on learning opportunities! They offer Zoology which I intend to be my major in college.

I would choose this school again because of all the wonderful experiences and opportunities that have been provided for me! Go Wildcats!

If I was given the opportunity to attend Richmond Hill High School again, my answer would be a resounding yes. Of course, like most schools, Richmond Hill isn't perfect. However, in my experience, the positives outweigh the negatives. During my four years there, I crossed paths with some of the best students that would later develop into great friendships. I also had the honor of having great teachers that knew what they're were doing and certainly cared about my and other students' education. Thanks to Richmond Hill, I had plenty of opportunities to interact and grow with other people whether it be inside of the classroom or at a school event. I would certainly recommend Richmond Hill High School.

The teachers at Richmond Hill High School were not always the most professional, and in the past the school had dealt with teachers who had acted unprofessional and had fired them in the end.

When it came to teaching, the styles were not always easy to follow or understand, but on occasion the teacher would re-explain the problem and try to help students. Not very many teachers did this in the two years I attended Richmond Hill. The few teachers that did help however, sought to further the students in their class rather than ignore them, and gave a few good pieces of advice along the way. One teaching style that had never helped me nor my classmates, was answering a question I or they had asked with another question. Not understanding the material being taught to me and then having my question replied with another one was one of the more frustrating things I had taken with me through my high school education.

Many teachers at this high school were very focused on making sure the students made the bare minimum on standardized testing, and often lived their lives waiting for the bell to ring at 3:30 every week-day. One thing that made this high school tolerable were the few teachers that did care about their students. Those were the teachers I admired and thanked for helping when I graduated in 2015. One of whom helped me pursue my passion in Criminal Justice, the degree I'm currently in at college.
