Rochester City School District Reviews
Most experiences I’ve had being one of the many students within the RCSD were bad. From teachers kicking me out of class for no reason, to me being accused of very wrongful doings in the classroom. Nonetheless, I’ve had my good memories that I will hold on to forever. For example, me graduating was the most important part of my whole experience in school because it’s the main goal, focus and reason for me continuing to the finish line and striving to not give up even when I felt like all odds were pinned against me to fail.
The RCSD needs some serious reform. I just saw in the news that my old elementary school was shut down due to ADULTS stealing funding money. This makes me sad. Security isn't tight enough. Kids are able to sneak in weapons and drugs. School is a place to learn not a place for recreational drug abuse. Children shouldn't be able to have sex in blind spots where cameras cannot see. Not all teachers are good but, some of the teachers in the RCSD truly do have passion when they teach. Over all I rate it a 6.5/10. I say this because I came out of it fine but only because of the teachers and a good parent.
I feel as though the district didn't do enough for our schools or kids. They didn't care about what was best for us, but was best fro themselves and the budget. I wish faculty and administration tried to connect and understand the kids more instead of labeling them. I wish that they didn't spend millions of dollars trying to get us flat screen TVs, instead of the textbooks we need. Compared to other districts and schools, the Rochester City School District I feel as though our kids are at a great disadvantage when it comes down to education, resources, and the proper nurturing that a teen or pre-teen needs.
