Round Rock High School (RRHS) in my opinion couldn't have been a more pleasurable experience. The school at the time was growing more and more each year. The facilities were great just as the atmosphere was. Most teachers were their not to teach, but prepare students for college. Administrators were okay at times, not the best but not the worst. But the real attractions was the diverse community and the love for tradition and sports. There was no better feeling than spirit circle on the mornings of a football game or the getting out of class for lunch and walking over to the baseball games, and going a supporting the vast amount of sports. RRHS was a great experience filled with dedicated faculty and a rich atmosphere for maroon and white (school colors). Reminiscing about a great 4 years (class of 2014) I can proudly say I wouldn't have picked any other school.

Generally the high school is pretty big, which was great for getting me used to college life. It always felt like there was some kind of event or club in at the school which made everything feel more alive, thus making everyone feel better.

The staff that I encountered was generally good, at most I could say is one or two teachers that felt overly strict. There were some fights but not that many that I can remember.

The only real criticism I feel I could give is the way the school handed out info/communicated, a lot of times I had to ask friends about changes to events because the school would not notify fast enough. This became somewhat apparent during AP testing.

Overall I feel my experience here was mostly positive.

There is a variety of extracurricular opportunities at this school. The different types of clubs include academic, gaming, political, voluntary, religious and athletic type clubs. There is a different level of commitment required from each of these types of clubs. For example, Student Council, Mu Alpha Theta and National Honor Society require more time than the Pokemon club or the GSA club. Although there are different levels of time and commitment for different schools, there is something for available for everyone to join. Student council is very big at this school, because it looks good one ones resume to college and you get to plan and decide things for your class. Administration loves to approve new clubs as long as a teacher is sponsoring it and it is a safe. After school activities range from tailgating before a football game, to student after school practices to the homecoming parade.
