Raleigh Charter High School, a very prestigious charter school in downtown Raleigh. It is a hospitable environment to the growth and maturing of a variety of individuals. The blend of social and academic perfection led it to become top 9 on Newsweek magazine's school ratings in 2007. However, there has been a lot of recent trouble with drinking, drugs and other nonsense.
Hey, I go to RCHS.
Wow, I applied there. But I didn't get in. My life would have been so much better if I did.
Hey, I go to RCHS!
Oh, I know that school. It is really good at the academic competitions, like quiz bowl and world quest.
Yup, that is the one. We pwn.
Raleigh Charter High, one of the hardest high schools in the country (#20 on US News). Admission by lottery, no tuition. Really, we're just 520 "wannabe-successful" middle class preps playing catchup with those rich Ravenscroft kids.
If you think we have no life, then that's partially true: Status revolves around the course-load; average is around 3 APs a year (destroyed the exams, as well: 85% 4s and 5s, 90% pass rate!). Quiz Bowl (1st in the Nation!), Science Olympiad (1st in the State, tied with those science nerds in Durham), Mock Trial, and Crew dominate the competitive scene.
Notable for not having a football team or homecomings (until this year).
"Thank god I didn't get into RCHS: They don't even have football. Or homecomings! And APs will be my only friend."
"Yeah, I know... Those junkies take like 5 APs and cut themselves." (Hehehe, freaked out one guy)
Richland Collegiate High School. Something that doesn't actually exist because its pretty much the same thing as going to Richland College and doing dual credit. The only difference is that you're still treated like a kid.
Guy 1: RCHS? Richland Collegiate High School? That sounds made up.
Guy 2: That's because I made it up.
