Rochester City School District Reviews
What I like about Rochester City School District is that the teachers put forth effort to help students achieve academically and use various techniques to help them learn and understand the material being taught. The teachers can also be very lenient and flexible. Though with that being said, changes that can be done is more life skills classes, which may be a major change to the structure of schools systems itself. If life lessons are taught in schools it can ensure survival in the real world. Some basic life skills may consist of time management, social skills, and a more healthier nutritional lifestyles. Overall, my school experience in the Rochester City School District is average, but there is always room for improvement and soon there will be a change in the school districts that will benefit and impact so many more lives.
I would like to see the community as a whole more involved in academic readiness and involvement. Helping each other out makes the community stronger and brings people together. Going to support sports teams or academic teams shows not only for students and parents, but also shows that the schools and community are striving to be stronger together.
I am at Joseph C. Wilson Magnet High School right now and I am very glad to be in the International Baccalaureate Program. I feel challenged with these rigorous courses. I am very proud to be in this district where they provided me with these high level thinking. I am also proud that there is Upward Bound Program, which I am apart of. This program has helped me with my college applications and learning about colleges. Due to the opportunities that the Rochester City School District provided me, I am able to make it to the University of Rochester this fall. I would like to thank my school and my district for making this possible for me.
