Welcome to 2021!

Hello Panther Scholars and Families!  Happy New Year and Welcome to 2021!  For many of us, the end of 2020 is a welcome event and we are looking forward to greater things in 2021.  As we review our year, I want to take time to acknowledge that our scholars and families have risen to the challenges and we have overcome.  As we prepare our return to school plan for our scholars, please keep in mind that safety is always at the forefront.  We realize that distance learning may not have been easy for some of us but please bear with us as we plan the best possible re-entry plan to school.  

Classes will reconvene Monday, January 4, 2021, with our online distance learning format.  At this time, we are working diligently to plan and ensure that all safety measures are in place before our students re-enter the building; this takes time.  As we have further information in regards to our re-entry to in-person learning, we will share with you all.  It has always been our goal to have our students in-person but we are mindful and cautious of the safety measures required.  Please also be reminded that we will continue our Quarter 2, which concludes with the end of Semester 1 on January 29, 2021.  

We appreciate your ongoing support and diligence throughout this online learning.  This pandemic has presented some challenges, but we have worked together to ensure that we are always stronger!

At River Rouge High School, we believe that all students deserve the opportunity to excel and be challenged in a safe and nurturing learning environment. We also believe that in order to be successful, students must have a growth mindset and focus on learning from challenges.

We provide a multi-faceted program that encompasses excellence in academics, athletics, and the performing arts. We believe in our students and provide caring support for them and their families through wraparound services as well as the efforts of our outstanding staff. 

The 2015-2016 school year was an extremely successful year!

  • River Rouge's Class of 2016 earned over $7 million in scholarships. 
  • Two River Rouge students (Britney Rivers and Lord-Amani Cooper) were awarded with the Bill Gates Millenium Scholarship. 
  • Our football team played in the state finals and were awarded distinction as Academic All-State. 
  • This year saw the return of the River Rouge Theatre Ensemble, who produced two shows. 
  • We successfully added Advanced Placement and Honors courses to our schedule. 
  • The Culinary Arts program successfully opened the Taste of Rouge Cafe right inside of RRHS. 
  • A partnership between River Rouge School District and Beaumont Health resulted in the River Rouge Teen Health Center, which serves all of our students' medical needs, as well as health awareness, prevention, and support. 

It's a great day to be a Panther, and if you would like more information, please contact our enrollment office at (313) 297-9605. Go Panthers!
