Conferences being scheduled for 9th and 11th graders

Advisors of 9th and 11th grade students have begun scheduling conferences. Our goal is for each advisor to have at least one face-to-face meeting each year with each of his/her advisement students and parents.


Spring conferences target 9th and 11th grade advisement students; in the fall, we held 10th and 12th grade conferences.


If you have a child in 9th or 11th grade, please be on the look out for an invitation from your child's advisor to come in for this conference. If you don't get this invitation by mid-March, please let me or another administrator know so that we can work with your child's advisor to make this happen.

We need your feedback

Each year, stakeholders are surveyed in an effort to collect information about our school from varied perspectives. These survey results are used to help compile our CCRPI Climate Star Rating. For the 2018-19 school year, RHHS earned a 4 star rating (out of 5 stars).


Please click this link to take the Georgia Parent Survey. The survey is administered online. Your participation and feedback is important and will be reviewed and used as we continuously plan for improvement.
