The grand majority of teachers exhibit an strong endeavor to help their students thrive in their classes. Lessons are generally engaging and require a level of student commitment that travels beyond a simple lecture, which clearly allows the teachers to know which students need help. Most teachers are willing to sacrifice time after school to continue to assist students if needed. All teachers are very kind and are willing to create a healthy educational environment to accurately prepare a student like me for college and beyond!

This is a great school! We are taught that we should strive for excellence and nothing less of that. Everyone is so close and just overall always happy. This school provides a numerous amount of opportunities for its students. And the teachers truly care and go above and beyond for its students! I would like to see a change in how the money for after school programs is distributed and more support for EVERY club and team not just certain ones. Overall this school does a great job in setting up its students for after high school!

In all honesty, I will look back on my time here and I will not miss it at all. The girls are pretty much all exactly alike, dim-witted and conforming to whatever makes them look best, likewise with the guys. There is definitely a sense of entitlement and an air of classism amongst the students here. If you're not pretty, popular, or athletic, then people are going to pretty much ignore you, and as someone who has seen into both sides, it's very frustrating to see these amazing people snubbed for being "different". The people are fake, many of the parents are all exactly the same-- picture perfect images of suburbia with manicured nails and high-end SUV's, all hiding dirty little secrets behind these pristine images of Polo shirts and nice homes all stacked on top of each other in the dime-a-dozen suburbs that this town has to offer. There is a lack of depth in the students. There is little to no intellectual vitality. People generally care very little about others and only do services for their own benefit. The teachers are alright, many do not get enough credit for what they do, but then again there are those teachers who really don't care about teaching and tune their primary focus onto coaching sports instead. I am just personally very disappointed, and I can't wait to get out of here. There is no real substance or any true sense of empathy in the students. Despite that though, I have received a very decent education here, but I wish that I had gone to school in a more diverse environment where the students were actually motivated to do more with their lives than just get married, reproduce, and never question the world around them. Rossview isn't terrible, and I'm not even sure that any of the real problems it has could be fixed by administration (okay.. maybe the administration could do something about those horrendous lunches). It hasn't been bad, but it hasn't been that great either. I won't miss it, not one bit.
