It seems like a lot of schools struggle to find a balance between channeling money to facilities, arts, and sports – which is where booster committees and fundraisers come in to help.

Students who decided to take AP government this year made a big mistake. Heading into the school year, students were told they would receive weighted AP credit for both terms. This is simply just not the case. Currently only the first term of AP gov’t will receive credit and not the second. The question...

ROAR bucks were introduced not too long ago and to be honest I have not heard much about them. I do, however, remember seeing a lot of posters around campus last year. I came to RHS junior year as a transfer student, and no one was really talking about it. Moreover, I feel like no one was excited...

I need as much help as I can get with this school year. Traditionally, a junior jam packs their schedule with APs and/or extracurriculars to prepare for the feeding frenzy that is college apps. And so, consequently, I love the idea of things like Google Classroom and text reminders and classroom group...

Over 70 people during the 2016/2017 transferred into Roseville High School from other schools in the district. This is the highest number of intradistrict transfers. Somehow, despite the highest transfer rates, people still try to talk badly about the school. The numbers prove the haters wrong. RHS...
