Six RHS students have been accepted to Governor’s School this year.
Governor’s School is a highly-selective residential summer program. Rising juniors and seniors spend nearly six weeks taking advanced courses in an academic subject of their choice.
Governor’s School is not based around grades or tests, and focuses on giving students complete access to challenging courses.
It is very difficult to get into. For the musical programs applicants must audition, and for other programs, academic testing and grades are heavily considered.
Interim counselor Rojulynne Fike noted how difficult it is for students to get into Governor’s School.
“It is a very rigorous process, it is quite an honor to be accepted,” said Fike.
