Rochester Community School District Reviews

The Rochester School District is a very quiet district. It is filled with primarily white middle-class students and families. The amount of violence in schools is minimal, but that is not to say that teenagers don't still participate in finding other "recreational" ways to spend the time. In general the education system is very good!

I really enjoyed my time in the Rochester Community Schools District. I started in this district in first grade, now I am a high school senior at Rochester High School. I beleive RCS has made me college ready as a student, and a young adult. RCS is always out to help students in any way they can! They always encourage enolvement and acceptance! I have met many great educators and friends throghout my time in Rochester Community Schools.
I attended Rochester Community schools from 4th grade through 12th grade, graduating from Rochester High School in 2011. Overall, I enjoyed my time at all three schools I attended in the system (McGregor Elementary, West Middle, and Rochester High), making lifelong friends, including some teachers who have impacted my life in a very positive way. I felt as prepared for college as they could have made me, and any failures I've had can certainly not be attributed to the teaching I was given. Would highly recommend to any young family looking to settle in a place where their children will be well taken care of until the day they graduate.
