RJUHSD placed tenured teacher Doug Mason on administrative leave late last month in the wake of multiple sexual misconduct accusations against him, according to a district communication to students’ families. This action has been a long-time coming and falls nearly a year after a Woodcreek student...

To exploit American students, one must slow the progress of American education as much as possible. The best way to do this would be to place education in the hands of one organization that squeezes every penny out of students, yet uses none of it to benefit society. Some sort of monopoly would establish...

On the first day of the second semester, I experienced certain heartbreak. It was a terrible, achingly dramatic ordeal with a side dish of betrayal. I remember feeling hollow and disjointed. Almost like it was a freshly dead beloved household pet that nobody wanted to mention by name, I was forced...

I have what most consider a “grade obsession.” And if you take a look around RHS, you’ll find that this sanity-reducing ailment affects an abundance of other poor, unfortunate souls. I realize it probably isn’t the healthiest thing for me, but what can I say, I grew up with it and I haven’t...

Spirits days counterintuitive by lack of inclusivity

Spirits days counterintuitive by lack of inclusivity

For the sake of full disclosure, I might not be the most outwardly spirited person at this school. While my more meticulous friends would religiously don attire for each spirit day, I spent my morning snoozing my alarm clock until I had to make a dash to school. Still, I appreciate spirit weeks as a ...

Financial literacy is something seldom found in high school graduates. When the school district introduced the idea of an online financial literacy course, the majority of my acquaintances saw it as just another hurdle to leap on the pathway to graduation. This was the first mistake. In my experience...

With a deep sigh of half relief and half skepticism, I finally believe we are on the right track to having organization and consistency for parking in the senior lot … well, at least we’re on the right track. With the new implementation of applications and purchase for personal parking spots,...

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,...

December 12, 2017

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...
