Rockcastle County Public Schools have teachers and administrators that encourage and educate students to their highest potential. The teachers and counselors are qualified, dedicated, and care for the students immensely. If anything, I would like to see more diversified opportunities to have under performing students branch out and challenge themselves. I am honored to be a student in Rockcastle County.

Rockcastle County Schools helped me become the college student I am today. They insured that you got an education, and attended school. It is a decent school system, and they do help you in furthering your education. They are somewhat understanding in many different situations. Overall, I would definitely recommend this school system to anyone living here locally.
Great connection with teachers. A lot of clubs/activities for students to join. Very laid back. Sports are very important here. Your last name means everything here. Mildly diverse.Bullying is one of the main problems that went unsolved. Drugs were often used in school. tobacco was often found in water fountains, sinks, and floors.
