Technology Needs

At RTHS, we have a policy of "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) — that is, we expect students to bring a device with them every day that is capable of interacting with the systems used in classes for class work and homework. We also award laptops to students who qualify as in need of a school contribution.


Carpool & Busing

Research Triangle High School has developed a traffic plan designed to help ensure access to RTHS for students from every part of the Triangle.  Our students come to school by both carpool and public transportation, depending on family choice.


RTHS does not have a cafeteria, so students bring a lunch and eat in designated classrooms and outside in the patio area in the front of the school building.


Students who are eligible for federally approved lunch are eligible for a free hot lunch, available daily at the front desk.  The form for this eligibility is part of the student enrollment package.

Grievance Policy

April 2018

Families that have a disagreement with the school may file an official grievance and follow the school's grievance policy. Filers must begin with their student's teacher, and then may discuss their grievance with the Principal in order to progress through the Grievance process. Conversations are always encouraged and welcome as the first step to resolve any disagreements and maintain relationships. Aggrieved families are welcome to download the policy and begin the process as described within, and will be given all consideration and attention as proscribed by the policy and state education law.  

School Calendar & Bell Schedule

Inclement Weather Policy

Should the weather interfere with our normal school schedule, please listen to WRAL-TV (Channel 5) or WRAL-FM (101.5 FM) or log on to www.wral.com for information about closings or delays for Research Triangle High School. In addition, information will be posted to our Facebook page, and on Twitter (follow us @restrihigh). Because our population is split between counties with often different weather results and policies, it is important to check the RTHS report rather than looking at the county schools themselves.


Through online access to PowerSchool, students and their families can keep up-to-date on student progress and data. Grades and attendance are viewable and trackable here.




Meningitis Requirements

Senate Bill 444, referred to as "Garrett's Law," was signed by Governor Easley on July 17, 2004. Garrett's Law mandates that at the beginning of every school year, local boards of education shall ensure that schools provide parents and guardians with information about meningococcal meningitis and influenza and their vaccines.


To support this effort, the bill states that the Division of Public Health, Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Public Instruction shall make available these sample educational materials that can be provided to parents and guardians.
