Welcome to the official home for Roswell High School
Shop With a Hornet
We are taking care of our community for the holidays! RHS’s National Honor Society is hosting its first Shop with a Hornet event. This one-day event will celebrate future Hornets in true Roswell spirit and pair them with our students for activities and holiday shopping fun! We hope to support at least thirty Roswell North Elementary children and families. Sting will join the kids for their shopping adventure, gift-wrapping and various activities. The elementary students will take home a swag bag of RHS regalia and a grocery gift card.
To help us raise enough funds for each Roswell North student to Shop with a Hornet, NHS is selling event T-shirts and taking donations. Visit the link below or scan the QR code to help support our future Hornets!

Personal Fitness Waiver Update
Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, the School Governance Council has approved the adoption of the Universal Fitness Waiver. There are a few key differences from the waiver currently in place (and expiring in May 2019) and we want to ensure everyone has the information in a timely manner.
New Personal Fitness Waiver requirements beginning fall 2019:
1. Successful completion of 2 seasons of a GHSA sanctioned sport (not including One-Act and Literary)
2. Successful completion of 2 seasons of marching band
3. Successful completion of 3 credits of JROTC
The new waiver guidelines will not allow students to use prior years activities to meet the requirement. Beginning in fall 2019, all students who want to apply for a waiver will only be able to use completed seasons from fall 2019 and later. As a reminder, waiver requirements must be completed by the end of fall semester of senior year. Students eligible for a personal fitness waiver under the current waiver guidelines are strongly encouraged to submit their Personal Fitness Waiver form to Student Services by May 23, 2019 to take advantage of the current waiver requirements.
