Rhinelander High School has been successfully building a school-wide framework aimed at closing achievement gaps and increasing the number of students who graduate from high school ready for college or for a career. National research shows that full implementation of this type of framework leads to improved student outcomes.
By establishing this framework, RHS is increasing the consistency of effective instruction for all students, building staff knowledge and skills to support all learners, using data to more quickly identify and provide support for students, and shifting to a culture that supports stronger relationships with students and their families.
RHS is working to increase positive student outcomes in reading, mathematics and behavior. Schools that have received training in this framework, adopted evidence-proven practices, and have shown progress on implementation are honored by the Wisconsin RtI Center's Recognized Schools Program.
RHS has been recognized by the Wisconsin RtI Center with a Bronze level award for its specific efforts in behavior. To earn this level of achievement, schools must meet specific criteria that can be found on the Wisconsin RtI Center website.
This recognition program provides encouragement to schools and districts during the construction of their framework, and helps them celebrate progress toward full implementation. As schools continue the work, they will map out how to sustain their previous work and continue to build increasing levels of student supports in additional subject areas until the system is fully in place.

Fitness center, pool and hall walking at RHS are free to the public
The Aspirus Community Fitness Center and the Heck Family Community Pool, both located in Rhinelander High School, are free for the community to use during specified hours.
The fitness center, which includes weight machines, free weights, treadmills, bikes, and more is open to the public before school (6 to 7:45 a.m.) and after school (3:15 to 6 p.m.) on the weekdays. If you are interested in using the fitness center, please stop down during hours of operation (enter through Door #19) and speak with an attendant. There is a short informational form that must be completed prior to using the fitness center.
The pool is open to the public for open swim and lap swim on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Open pool consists of a combination of family time which includes open water with floaties, rings, balls, kickboards, and other equipment available for use, as well as a few lanes set up for those who want to swim laps. There is no form associated with Open Swim, however, sign-in is required upon arrival. Youth under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Designated hallways are also open free of charge for community members to walk whenever the fitness center is open. This is great for when the weather gets cold and the sidewalks get icy. For hall walking, please sign in at the fitness center desk prior to beginning your walk.
