I had a great experience at Rochester Community School District. They have a hardworking and caring staff that ensures high quality education and have prepared students for college and their future. Everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed and are there for those who need financial assistance such as free lunch programs. Both academics, arts, and athletics are supported and well funded.

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 have been a member of the Rochester Community Schools District for 13 years. Overall, the experience was good. However, the one thing I would like to see change is specifically at Rochester Adams High School. I think our school has a problem with admitting that there are cliques, and the administration likes to believe the students here are accepting of everyone. The problem is many kids have already formed group, and although they may not outright exclude someone else, there is an unspoken rule on who you can and cannot associate yourself with. Some kids have known each other since elementary school, and while that is great, I think many of the students could be more open to making new friends despite not knowing them as well, or if they think they're too different.
