Jesuit High School located in on the Missouri-Kansas state line (on the missouri side) in Kansas City..
Famous for a nationally ranked athletics programs- specifically excelling in football, soccer, tennis, and Golf..
A place that can be recognized again and again for outstanding academics.. Even with a 1000 student enrollment with a minority rate of over 10%, Rockhurst owns the second highest average ACT scores in the entire Kansas City area. The only school higher is 1/3 the sized and twice the admission fee (Barstow)
For being an all male school, Rockhurst guys continuously are harassed my people from the in city schools- specifically shawnee mission school district- for being "gay".. it is usually the only "fact" that they can come up with to counter state champion arguments.. also.. rockhurst boys have two all girls schools- saint teresas and sion- at their disposal to go along with pretty much every public school in kansas.. great ratio
Rockhurst is commonly accused for recruiting 7th and 8th grade boys.. This is 100 percent not true.. Rockhurst does not go find athletes, but athletes go find Rockhurst.. why would anyone who is serious about playing football in college waste their time in the Kansas Football district?? they wouldnt.. its not the rocks fault that they get all the talent ever..
SMEAST kid- "Hey Rockhurst dude.. your gay!"
Rockhurst guy- "stop bothering me im too busy stealing your girls and winning state titles"
SMEAST kid- "whatever dude... ur gay"
A prestigious high school in the Kansas City area. Rockhurst guys get all the ladies especially from Sion and St. Teresa's. Rockhurst has the second highest ACT test scoring in the Kansas City school district, falling shortly behind Barstow, a school located a few minutes away. Rockhurst is known around the region for it's state championships in football, soccer, and swimming. Students from other school around Rockhurst (especially St. Thomas Aquinas) try to call Rock students "fags" but this is just because of their insecurity and the fact that Rockhurst has more state titles.
However, Rockhurst is not perfect. The basketball program is very political and you will either make the team because of A) You have a famous relative or B) The basketball coaches want you for your height and strength. Rockhurst does not value the skill of their basketball players. Rather, they select their players so they can out rebound other teams and score down low. Rockhurst teams have no skill and the head coach will cut you from the team if you don't play how they want you to, which is to drive and pass the ball to the post. They don't care if you are a Michael Jordan, they won't take you if you don't meet their qualifications.
Guy1: Hey bro, you go to Rockhurst?
Guy2: Yea.. (Thinks, why is this Aquinas kid talking to me?)
Guy2: Keep telling yourself we're faggots. You mad because all the girls like us and we are better academically and athletically.
A private, all male high school located in Kansas City, Missouri. If you are an outstanding athlete from the ages of 8-14, chances are Rockhurst will be trying to somehow get you to come play for their high school in one sport of another. The school is strategically located on the border of Kansas and Missouri for two reasons.
1.)They can be located as close to the middle of the city as possible.
2.)They can pay cheaper taxes in Missouri.
I hate Rockhurst, they take all the best players...yet somehow manage to blow more state title runs than any school in the Missouri.
