    Extracurriculars: There are many different varieties of school clubs, sports, and extra curricular activities available. One of my favorites in particular is the RHHS band program. Our school has excellent instructors and most of all amazing students. We have a marching band thats basically student led with our awesome band directors and color guard instructor. Our school has one of THE best band programs in southern Georgia.

    Overall Experience: I personally believe that the children at my school are a reflection on their parents and RHHS has many kind people and whom for the most part genuinely care about their grades and graduating. The amount of AP/Honors classes and the children taking them prove that parents are taking involvement in those kids lives by pushing them to challenge themselves. Parents at RHHS are pretty good.

    Teachers: The quality of the teachers at RHHS is very rare to have an outstanding teacher. Although the majority of them are very good teachers they don't put as much passion and "genuine care" because at the end of the day most of them have other priorities. The teachers at RHHS nonetheless are very good and teach the standards that are required.

    Teachers: Most of the teachers are devoted to helping out students,and they're very respectable
