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.
Review Your School
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.
Growing up in the Rochester School District, I am thankful and very fortunate for the resources and education that I have been given. Overall, the Rochester Community School District is a great community to educate children of all ages and all ethnicities. It offers many opportunities to be a part of what you like, such as a wide variety of athletics, clubs, music, and national programs.

The teachers and the people you connect with while going through the school system is something Rochester strives to make great. They promote learning in a safe and fun environment, yet they are not afraid to challenge a student or put them out of their comfort zone in order to create growth. They make sure we come out of graduation with a full knowledge of how to not only be able to read and comprehend material, but to also be independent thinkers in an evolving world such as this.
