There are students of questionable character, probably even criminals at RAHS, but that's the real world, they are at every high school. Lets mention that the 2010 Rhode Scholar list has 32 winners on it (32 winners out of thousands of applicants from around the country. . .) Out of those 32 winners, TWO are recent Roseville Area High School graduates? (Thirty-two Rhodes Scholars are selected each year to represent the United States – and this year two of them are from Roseville. They are Prerna Nadathur and Priya M. Sury. (November 22, 2010 | 1:13 PM | By Bill Wareham). In addition, last year a student from RAHS earned a perfect score on his ACT test. . . so did a current Roseville Area High School senior. She was one of three students in Minnesota and 63 in the United States to earn a perfect composite score of 36 on the October 2007 ACT. (Twin Cities.com Pioneer Press) And that's just to name a few accomplishments of RAHS graduates. . . 73% of the 2010 graduating class took the ACT test with the average composite score of a 24 compared to a 22.9 for MN and 21 nationally.
Roseville Area High School is going to have diversity and a wide range of socio-economic levels - it's a first tier suburb. With that comes poverty and crime. It's a tragic reflection of the world we live in and the lack of education. Education that is available to all students in Roseville, unfortuantely you cannot make the ignorant learn. They have to want to learn and better themselves.
