Rossview High School is a high school located in Clarksville, Tennessee. It is part of the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System. The current building was completed in 2001 at a cost of $28 million. 1,350 students were enrolled as of the 2005-2006 school year. The school's mascot is Squawk The Hawk, and the school's colors are red and gold, though many sports teams prefer the more 'stylish' black and red. A special tutoring and peer advising program was implemented after "inadequate performance" in the 2003 No Child Left Behind tests, which helped to bring the school up to all federal benchmarks by 2005.[1] The school far exceeds state achievement score averages for each grade for Reading/Language arts as well as for Math.[2]

Athletics[edit]

Rossview High School has had a total of five state championships brought back to the school since opening back in 2001. Wrestling, Track and Field, and Girl’s Golf have brought home individual championships. Girl’s Golf has also won as a team twice. Many of the sports teams, such as boys and girls varsity tennis, have won district titles.
