As summer approaches, students have begun to reflect on their year. They reminisce on their favorite parts about the high school, and the many features the school has to offer. 

Many of these parts enhanced the students memories and are the factors that went into making the school year really special. 

Many popular places inside RCHS include the alcoves, where many students go to hang out with friends, the band room, where many students can express their love for music, or even the cafeteria, where many students enjoy eating and talking with their classmates. 

Not only are these locations some students’ favorite parts, but also the opportunities they are given throughout the year. Teachers, clubs, or even classes can become a highlight of someone’s year. 

The seniors will miss the locations and features of RCHS that were special to them, and the underclassmen will look forward to the following year, when they can spend a part of their school day in these special places while experiencing the opportunities RCHS has to offer.  

Senior Hannah Stephens shares her favorite part of RCHS and also includes why.

“The community and environment that the courtyard has created is something that I will miss. It is a place that we can go to not feel stuck or just have a moment,” said Stephens.

Locations throughout the highschool that can help to provide students with quietness or a moment to themselves are very popular, as many students are stressed and have overwhelmingness because of school. These spots bring comfort and peace to many.

Junior Josie Caldwell shares one thing that she loves about the school.

“My favorite part of high school is getting to see my friends throughout the day. This is because seeing my friends makes my day better,” said Caldwell.

As there are different types of students all throughout the school, some find more happiness and have better days in the socialization aspects of high school. 

The feeling of being able to see friends and talk to them throughout the school day can be comforting for many, especially when they may be having a rough day or need a friends’ kindness to boost their week.

Sophomore Brennen McDaniel shares his favorite part of the high school.

“My favorite part of RCHS is all the CTE classes because they are a fun and different way to learn life skills,” said McDaniel.

CTE classes can help students adapt skills that they may be able to use in their future jobs. They can help teach them aspects of the workforce and help enhance their education and high school experience. 

There are many different places that can help students on a daily basis. Whether they provide peace, happiness, or life skills, they are all important to students while at school.
