The RHS staff want to extend their heartfelt thanks to all families attending our recent Parent-Teacher Conference. Your active participation and dedication to your child's education is greatly appreciated.
The conference provided an invaluable opportunity for us to discuss your child's progress, strengths, and areas for improvement. Your engagement and insightful questions during the conferences were truly remarkable.
We look forward to continuing this journey together and working hand in hand to support your child's academic and personal growth. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher or our school staff.

RHS Building Connections with Dimmitt Middle School Honors and IB Program
Eigth graders from Dimmit Middle School visited Renton High School this past Friday. They had a great experience attending classes with IB students at Renton High School. It was wonderful to see the RHS and DMS students connecting. Shout outs came from Dimmitt MS to the RHS staff for welcoming their scholars, and to their scholars for jumping right into the learning! Thanks to Mr. Collie for helping make this happen. We hope that this is an opportunity we can present to more of our Dimmitt Middle School scholars throughout the year.

Attention Families of Sophomores and Seniors
Washington State Healthy Youth Survey 2023
Our school is participating in the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey during fall 2023. The survey will be given to students in Grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 in large districts and students in Grades 6 through 12 in small school districts.
The Healthy Youth Survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, sexual behaviors, abuse, risk and protective factors, and access to school-based services. Survey results are used by schools, communities, and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.
Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous. There are no codes or information used to match a survey to a student.
