Rochester Community School District Reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed my time. There were so many things to get involved with and the school spirit was definitely there! Most teachers were very fun to learn from and inspired me a lot! I have many great memories here! What I will say though, is that the disciplinary actions made by administration in the high schools seems to be unfair and sometimes discriminatory. I would like to see the administration take more actions to be more sensitive and treat people of all kinds the same.

I enjoyed the many different opportunities my school has offered. I enjoyed being a part of the cheer program, and the many different activities that they have allowed us to be a part of. I appreciate that I am college ready as a senior, and I appreciate the focus on making a student well rounded. My school always strives for excellence in whatever they do.
I appreciate the extra help I have received along the way. I have an IEP and RCS has always allowed me to work on their team to come up with goals that not only challenged me but has always focused on becoming the person I am today. They have taught me to be a hardworking, assertive, determined individual.
Over all my experience within the Rochester Community Schools distract was good, although the biggest change that I would like to see would be an improvement in food taste and the preparation for college. I eat lunch at school almost every day, and while I do understand that they have regulations they must follow for the rate of healthiness of the food I do believe that it could taste better and be a better experience for those students who buy or receive free lunch. The teachers try their hardest to prepare the students for college but there's such a rushed feeling to it, rather than starting from freshman year with the preparation, it really begins in junior or senior year because that's when everyone begins to discuss and attempt to make decisions on what they want to do with their lives and the school they want to attend. The cramming of college preparation along with the decisions is overwhelming and at times discouraging.
