Randleman High School is located in Randleman, NC, home of Richard Petty and close to the NC Zoo. We have a student body of approximately 940 and are one of seven high schools in Randolph County.
I taught here for 23 years, retiring in June of 2014. RHS will always be near and dear to my heart!

During the fall of 2013 advanced students in Mrs Hager's fine crafts class and advanced students in Mrs Walker's drawing class collaborated on an installation featuring life size figures, posters and tags based on their study of graffiti. The theme for the project was "Issues in Education". Students researched these issues, studied graffiti and social protest art, then created their posters and figures based on issues in NC education that were of interest to them.
On Sunday, March 9, our local newspaper featured our installation on the front page of the Lifestyles section. Here is a link to the article: courier-tribune.com-Randleman_art_students_explore_public_education.pdf

Last spring, advanced art students at RHS completed a new mural to hang over the cafeteria. This is just one of several murals art students have completed around the school. Go TIGERS!

Torres recycled aluminum cans to create the tiger. He spent weeks cutting (read more)
