Open Quote The school is amazing for the student body. I had such a great experience at RHS the last four years. But that’s not why I gave them a 1 star rating. THE ADMINISTRATION TEAM SUCKS. They rather see your kid fail then succeed. Bullying. They never help the situation. They side with the bully not the victim. I’m sorry but carasco is the worst of them all. He thinks he’s
Such a good principal. He’s NOT. He is not professional. And he compares athletic, and honors to students who are struggling. He compares you to his own children. One who he kept from GRADUATING just so he can keep him on the football team. HORRIBLE ADMINISTRATIVE TEAM. They should all be replaced in my opinion. They also SUCK AT ANSWERING THEIR EMAILS FOR STUDENTS. How are they supposed to do their work when half of them don’t answer phones, meeting requests, emails etc. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
