As an RHS student who does not possess a car, most of the time, I struggle to get to school on time. Whenever I do end up being late, my parents would always know, despite the fact that it would never be over half an hour. But ever since the school implemented a policy where they call home the second...

I take offense to claims that Americans are uncultured, self-centered people with little to no understanding of the world around them. Not necessarily because that isn’t true, but because I have successfully pointed to South Korea on a map and feel I should get some credit for my elementary knowledge...

Last school year, RHS decided to implement a new sort of rule. If a parent or guardian is to bring us food, they must leave it at the drop off table in the front office rather than passing it to us through one of the gates as many students have done in the past. In theory this may be the safer option,...

Unlike most, I took both AP Human Geography and AP European History before my AP U.S. class. While people commonly misconceive that AP Human Geography is a much easier course than AP Euro, I found that both classes take a considerable amount of effort and time. However, though people claim that both...

RHS’ latest maintenance overview determines overall, the campus is in “good” shape. This is incongruent with a tradition of “exemplary” ratings from years past that competed with many students’ daily realities. The Facility Inspection Tool (FIT) has been developed to determine if a school...

Let me be the first in a long line of many to say that I love the vending machines. They are a glowing beacon of light and hope in the middle of an otherwise dim school day. Half of my energy depends on whether or not I get my daily muffin fix alone. But despite my utter adoration and the near worship...

Raise your hand if you have ever sat at home and thought to yourself ‘You know what would improve my learning experience? Meaningless, but fun, detours from the curriculum to subjects just barely related. That will definitely benefit my knowledge of the actual class-related material.’ Never? Huh,...

During the school day, I attended the Breaking Down the Walls program. At first, I was confused on what the program was, but as soon as I got there and the speaker started presenting I realized it was like a peer helping assembly that the school paid for. Now it seems like I’m trashing it, but it was...

As seniors with fourth period off, we leave school every day after third period through the front entrance of the school. Given that it’s an indoor area, the hallway leading to the doors of the entrance is not monitored by the surveillance cameras recently installed on campus. This, combined with...

From freshman to junior year, the school exclusively offers what it labels as the advanced history courses in the form of year-long classes that alternate with their respective advanced English course. This structure is designed with the hopes to improve AP test scores, as it would allow both courses...

Every Tuesday and Thursday students in PE have to complete a run of the PE staff’s choice. You do warm-ups, you go out and run, and then it's time to go change before you have to go to your next period. But now, as curriculum is changing and technology is evolving, so are PE procedures. On the M...

I‘ve spent too much money on DoorDash, GrubHub, Postmates and UberEats. This I know to be true. Has a majority of that money been spent between the hours of 7:40 a.m. and 2:30 p.m? No comment. I can’t help myself! Getting DoorDash is like when you were in elementary school and you came back from...
