Roseville Area High School (RAHS) is a public high school located in Rosevillemarker, Minnesotamarker near the Twin Citiesmarker. It serves Roseville and the surrounding communities of Falcon Heightsmarker, Lauderdalemarker, Little Canadamarker, Maplewoodmarker, and Shoreviewmarker Minnesota. RAHS is the only traditional public high school in Roseville Area School District 623.

History

RAHS was founded after the 1986 merger of Alexander Ramsey High School and Frank B. Kellogg High School. The merger took place due to declining enrollment at both schools. The new high school used the facilities from the previously existing Alexander Ramsey complex, and the former Kellogg High School became Roseville Area Middle School.

Plans originally called for construction of a new high school (replacing both the Ramsey and Kellogg school buildings) on district-owned land near Lake Owasso. In the early 1990s, it was decided to expand and remodel the existing Roseville Area High School instead. The land held by the school district was sold and the proceeds were used to finance the construction at RAHS. The community built on the sold land is now known as Owasso Hills.

During the 1986-87 school year RAHS operated on two campuses, with both East Campus (the former Kellogg site) and West Campus (formerly Ramsey) serving grades 9-12. From 1987 to 1997 RAHS was only 10-12th grades with 9th grade at Roseville Area Middle School. Upon completion of the construction in the fall of 1997, 9th grade was moved to RAHS.
