Richard Montgomery High School- my Alma Mater. While attending this fine establishment for four years, I have learned to love (and hate) most of what the school has given me. From homecomings to proms, open lunch and in-school suspension, here are 10 things you know if you went to RMHS-Go Rockets!
1. The IB Program.
During my time at RMHS I have seen multiple breakdowns, denial letters from Ivy Leagues, obscene amounts of homework, and a disheartening lack of social life with this magnet program. Shout out to all my friends and fellow classmates who graduated with their IB diploma!
2. Open Lunch.
While most students were forced to either pack their lunch from home or stuck in the cafeteria, we were allowed downtown to grab a bite to eat, pretty blessed!
3. Mr. RM.
The Annual Senior Male Beauty Pageant which was always a hit with the school!
Junior and Senior boys who dressed up and performed at the pep-rallies. For sure one of the more exciting events!
5. Wiz Khalifa’s Black And Yellow.
RM's anthem for sporting events. Plot twist- our colors are actually Black and Gold.
6. RM-Rockville Rivalry.
We will and will always be better than you, Rockville High School. Go Rockets!
The infamous morning announcement show. Shout out to Eric Rodney for always doing an amazing job with it!
8. Black Maskers
The hardcore theater kids who always managed to put on an incredible show. From controversial topics to timeless musicals- there was always something magical happening behind the curtain.
9. Main Street
Chances are you and your clique of friends had a reserved spot to sit at before school started.
10. The Path
We’ll just leave it at that.
Well there you have it. 10 things you know if you went to Richard Montgomery High School! Let's just hope the next time you walk into school they don't make you change your clothes because you are distracting other students, or encourage you to take more IB/AP classes!
