RBS High Named Among the “Best High Schools” by US News

Below is an exciting headline and paragraph concerning Red Boiling Springs High School:

            RBSHS named among the best high schools by US News. 

            Red Boiling Springs High School was named this year’s US News best high schools.  The school received a bronze rating.  Of the 350 schools in Tennessee, five were awarded gold medals, 18 earned silver medals, and 66 earned bronze medals.  The stats used are always current—these are from the 2012-2013 school year.  The school is listed as having an Algebra proficiency of 2.5 (47% of the students are proficient).  And an English proficiency of 2.6 (59% of students are proficient).

            This is the second time RBSHS has won the bronze award from US News.  In 2004 RBS High was also the recipient of the above mentioned award.  We salute Don Jones, the Principal of the high school, English teachers Chad Butler and Tammy Marlow, and Math teachers Angela Ballard and Tammy Kirts.  Time and time again studies have proven that the best schools are the small schools.

            We are proud of the educators and students at RBS High and we thank the very great elementary teachers at RBS for their hard work in getting their students ready for the upper grades.  For the 6 ½ years I have been on the School Board, it has been a joy to watch the two schools at RBS move forward academically.  A special thanks to all the teachers and staff at the two schools.
