Great faculty that really cares for students. I never felt that I was shoved in a box to succeed. MANY programs of study for a high school. Classes like sewing, building, lifestyle, child development, jewelry making, construction and more!

I really enjoyed my time at Rockford High School. They created fun activities for students, I was on their gymnastics team, and they had a lot to offer. I enjoyed most of my teachers, and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The athletics program at Rockford is amazing and has so much to offer. This is one of the big reasons I decided to switch from my homeschooling education to public school, and I was not disappointed!
I have attended Rockford since 1st grade. Overall, I think the school did best with what they were given. I think that it was an accurate representation of a public school district. There were instances where I think that the teachers that were hired should have been put under better questioning during interviewing about their teaching style. Meaning that instead of actually teaching students, I had an experience where my instructor would criticize us for not already knowing what they were teaching. They expected us to look ahead in the textbook, that wasn't related to her lessons, and teach ourselves the curriculum before class the next day. On another note, not that the school district can control this, but it is a very white community. There wasn't any problems that came up that I can think of, it just created outsiders of different race because they thought they didn't belong with the rest of the school.
