US News Ranking

On Tuesday, U.S. News and World Report released its annual ranking of the nation’s best high schools. We are pleased to announce that RTHS has ranked #22 of the top 50 High Schools in North Carolina. This accomplishment is a true testament to the hard work and dedication that all members of the RTHS Community have displayed over the past year. A special thanks to our staff, students and families for working together to make sure our school continues to be great.

Research Triangle High School provides globally competitive Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education by pioneering models of teaching and learning.

The Impact

Chartered March 2012
Opened August 2012

I like being able to take notes on my own at home (while watching Flipped videos) because then I don’t have to slow down in class. I’m able to take in more information that way.

I’m comfortable here because I have teachers that care about me. I don’t feel left out…

I like how they offer AP classes or options – we had AP Biology and AP World Civ last year (9th grade). 

I like RTHS because the labs and the hands-on activities we do in class are really fun.
