Dear Parents and Students:

I am privileged to have the opportunity to serve as the Principal of Rabun County High School, and am excited to welcome you to the 2018-2019  school year. I continue to be blessed by the warm welcome I have received from this wonderful community and look forward to building on the rich history of pride and tradition here at Rabun County High School.

Each new school year arrives with great promise. New beginnings provide an opportunity to renew our commitment to each member of our school community. Each student plays an important role in making our school unique and highly successful. RCHS offers a wealth of life changing experiences in the areas of academic life, athletics, fine arts, leadership, and community outreach. I urge you to take advantage of these amazing opportunities to broaden and enhance your high school experience.

It is our expectation that by providing high-quality instruction and multiple opportunities for extracurricular participation, all of our students will be prepared to make informed choices about their futures, whether their paths lead them to our nation’s most prestigious colleges and universities, to pursue technical or vocational training, to join the workforce, or to serve in the military. 

A strength of any school community is the joint effort of parents, faculty, and staff to establish and maintain high expectations for all areas of student growth and development. To this end, we have created this Handbook to help you become more familiar with the educational opportunities and responsibilities of RCHS students. 

I am excited about the upcoming school year. Working together, we can continue to make our community proud of the accomplishments and traditions of the Wildcat Nation!

Jonathan S. Gibson
