Reeltown High School sees 10 percent jump in enrollment | News
“Here we go again!” Kim Counts, Counselor, stated as another student enrolled at Reeltown High School. Reeltown High School has surpassed another record by enrolling over 800 students for the 2012-2013 school year. Over the past five years, attendance has jumped by over ten percent while many other schools have seen declining student enrollment.
“We have a tradition of leading our area academically. This edge can be noted through empirical data supplied via the State Department of Education. We continuously have the highest graduation rate in this area. Also, we consistently exceed minimum standards via Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP).” Principal Tom Cochran stated.
Complementing the academic strengths are the high quality extracurricular programs offered at Reeltown High School. “Two examples of leadership are found through our band and football programs which are led by Belinda Wright, Band Director and Jackie O’Neal, Athletic Director. Both of these programs annually provide our students with positive outlets via exceptional programs. With superior ratings and championships, each program stands at the top.” stated Ms. Nancy Baker, parent of two RHS students. Parents and students are attracted to these and all other programs which provide for their son/daughter to become a successful, well-rounded student.
“In the end, this is simply more verification that people are attracted to the best. We will continue the established traditions from the past, but also work diligently to prepare our students for the future,” reiterated Mr. Cochran. He may be correct given that RHS students have had so many accomplishments, not limited to, but including: 3 State Championships in Football, Superior Ratings for Band, National Spelling Bee participant, AYP for five years, school featured on CNN for technology usage, AP courses, highest graduation Rate in area, and many more. When Abby Burton was asked why more students are selecting Reeltown High School as home, she stated, “They finally realized we are the best school.”
