The current building is the oldest in-use high school building in north Fulton.[9]

The school offers many extracurricular activities, including 72 clubs, 11 academic teams, and various services clubs.[4] Some other activities meet as elective classes such as musical groups, drama, and art. These classes are supplemented by after-school rehearsals, meetings, and outside concerts. Students may also compete in the school's 42 varsity, junior varsity, and freshman athletic programs.[4]

Roswell is a member of the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) and Region 4-AAAAAAA for athletic competition, as of the 2016-2017 academic year.[10] The school's mascot is the Hornet, and the school colors are green, white and black.
