Rockford School District No. 205 Reviews
The school district made it easy to access grades online, report cards. Very understanding staff with a no bullying tolerance! Allowed diverse food options for students' needs. Staff would make every student feel involved in sports, tournaments, school assemblies. Family time was all the time!
What I like about my school district and school is that I am given great opportunities to help my community and to get ahead with my education. For example, being apart of the National Honors Society at my high school, we participate in food drives, trunk or treating during Halloween, cleaning up highways, and decorating our town for holidays. Doing these many things around my community is a great way to give back to our fellow members, and to meet many new people. Another example, as a student of the RPS district I am given the option of participating in a Dual-credit system with the community college. I attend the community college and take classes there to make up for my high school diploma and associates degree. By the time I finish high school I will leave with my Associate's degree and High School Diploma.
Rockford Public School District has had a lot of ups and downs over the years, and one thing I hope they can improve upon is the fine arts area. Most schools have little to no arts, and even the Creative And Performing Arts Academies, housed at West Middle School and Auburn High School, could use updated materials, technology, and more teachers in the field they are teaching in who are passionate about their work. The sports teams throughout the district get a lot of the media, and they should, but the clubs and other aspects of high school life should be shared more often.
