The schoolEdit

Rim of the World High School has a student body size that ranges between 900 and 1,000 students. Rim of the World High School is believed to be the first in California (and among only a handful in the nation) which has utilized both solar and wind energy for direct use by the High School.[1]

The school teams are "The Fighting Scots." The official mascot is the Scottish Terrier, but the more widely accepted, unofficial mascot is William Wallace. At the school, there's a large mural of Mel Gibson dressed in the same garb he wore when he played William Wallace in Braveheart. A common rumor around the school is that Mel Gibson himself came to the school dressed as William Wallace and posed for the mural, though this is largely unproven.
