Rockford Public Schools Reviews
As a student in the Rockford Public School district, I am happy to say that I have had an incredible experience. Perfect? No, but nothing really is perfect. I have always felt safe and cared for by both the staff and students of the district, and Rockford Public schools provides countless opportunities for each of its students in academics, sports, arts, and clubs. The Rockford Public School district strives for excellence, and its goals for each individual's achievement and the support provided lead Rockford students down paths toward greatness.
The faculty, sports, and all around learning structure is 5 stars for Rockford Public Schools. The biggest flaw of not only Rockford Public Schools, but the community as a whole is the "status" or "ego" of the community. Going to and living in Rockford without having a upper-middle class home with parents that didn't have an extra car or a vacation planned to Mexico for spring break was more than difficult. I was told from other students that it didn't make sense how I "looked the part" and was pretty but I didn't have any money. When I turned 16 I asked what kind of vehicle I was getting, when in fact I would be riding the bus until I graduated. The expectation of class and money within the Rockford community, even throughout the school system is appalling.
When it comes to Rockford, you have to look for the small things. Like most schools it does have it pros and cons, but I found the schools positives out weigh the negatives. I was able to find the academic support I needed with the help of some amazing staff, and I was presented with some amazing opportunities. In the world of athletics, Rockford is the school where you want to be, there are numerous teams that have been extremely successful. However the size of the school or the number of students can make it difficult for an individual to thrive and succeed and students tend to be lost in the crowd. The special education system is definitely lacking, I know students who were pulled out of the program and transferred to other school districts or went to home schooling. To put it simply Rockford is the place for the cookie cutter student, who can push through and find the positives in the small things and strive in different situations.
