"Only as high as I reach can I grow. Only as far as I seek can I go.
Only as deep as I look can I see. Only as much as I dream can I be." - Karen Ravn
Welcome to the Red Lodge High School website. We are very proud of our students, faculty, staff and our tradition of excellence. Our students, staff and school have been consistently recognized for their level of academic and extracurricular leadership achievement in Montana and in the Northwest. As a school, and as a community, we have taken great strides over the years to create a school of quality here at RLHS and we are committed to maintaining our excellence well into the future.
Red Lodge High School is a comprehensive high school; we are fortunate to be able to offer over 75 courses and 24 extracurricular support activities. We encourage our students to take advantage of the academic and extracurricular opportunities that are available at RLHS. We challenge our students to take the toughest courses they feel they can handle. Our student's success in school will be directly proportional to their efforts. This school belongs to our students, parents, and to this community. We have a valuable and important history here at RLHS. We look forward to having a vital and positive future. We want our students to be a contributing part of that future.Red Lodge High School has moved to a new campus on 800 North Chambers Avenue. We invite all RLHS parents and community to stop by and tour our new high school facility and the RAMS Event Center.
We are here to help, motivate, support, and to inform our students. Students and parents are urged to discuss any questions or suggestions about policies and opportunities with the staff and administration.
Our goal . . . "that every RLHS student will leave the school capable and willing to make a difference in the world", a mission that provides the focus we need as we look to build student successes for the future. However, as we celebrate our successes we look to our past and believe it too, is equally important. We are reminded often that our character, our customs and our traditions are built on the spirit, devotion and high ideals of those former students and staff who passed before us.
As you tour through our website and develop a snap shot of what, and who we are, I hope you will feel the same high level of "RLHS Pride" that those of us associated with Red Lodge High School have grown accustomed to.
On behalf of the RLHS Instructional Team, and myself, I would like to thank our parents and community who have stood behind our school in support of the positive accomplishments we have achieved throughout the past eleven years that I have been serving as high school principal. The 2014-15 school year will be filled with incredible successes for RLHS students because so many of you volunteer your time, stop by and visit, drop in to resolve problems that arise, and offer supportive suggestions that help us continue to strive towards making RLHS one of the top schools in our state. This is an important time for our youth where parents and community can unite to support RLHS, our school system and the crucial programs that strive to make this place of learning a grand experience for all students who enter our doors. I invite you to please stop by and visit or call if we can answer your questions, resolve concerns, or assist you in any way. To continue being one of the best high school programs in the state requires our entire community-parents and school working together--moving in the same direction as partners. When you visit our new high school campus, I think you will see the incredible pride and renewed spirit that is present in our new "state of the art" facility.
Please contact us if you need more information about our wonderful school and community.
With Sincere Appreciation For Your Continued Support!
