Rochester Community School District Reviews

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.

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.
