Ropes High School and Junior High is set up to provide the best education possible to prepare students for success in a global economy and to be productive citizens in society. We accomplish this vision for our students through several avenues. The first avenue is the curriculum that is offered to students. We have both AP/Honors courses and Dual Credit courses available to students throughout their high school careers. We offer AP Calculus, AP Chemistry, and AP Biology. We offer any and all Dual Credit courses available through South Plains College such as College Algebra, English, Government, Economics, Agricultural Finance, etc.
In junior high we allow students to accelerate into high school Algebra. The second method we use is through our iPad program in which all high school and junior high students have access to both iPad and Wifi at school. We continue to train both our students and our teachers in the use of wealth of technology that is available in society today. Thirdly, our students participate in many efforts to give back to their community by raising funds for worthy causes such as Breast Cancer Awareness, Ovarian Cancer, Food Banks, etc.
We have been very successful in all these efforts and our students graduate from Ropes High School with a great education that will carry them on into their future lives and careers. We have students that have gone on to Major Universities, local community colleges, the military or the job market. Ropes High School was selected in 2013 by U.S. News and World Report as one of the “Best High Schools in America”, this is the second time for this honor which was also awarded to our high school in 2007.
