    Overall Experience: I really liked my school. I was able to achieve good grades while playing varsity volleyball, all due to the help and support of the staff. I was even in honors and AP classes and still made a 4.0

    Teachers: Richmond Hill High School was a great environment for learning. The staff was very friendly, and knew how to incorporate all the styles of learning in their lessons. Of course there were a select few teachers I did not enjoy, but most overall had quite a passion for education and seeing us exceed expectations.

    Extracurriculars: I personally never had experience with any clubs, however I will say the Young Republicans and Young Democrats held quite an interesting and well-thought out debate that shows how committed to the clubs they are.

    Overall Experience: 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.
