Rockingham County Public Schools Reviews

Rockingham County Public Schools is an incredible district that cares about its students as well as its administration. From janitors to teachers, they strive their best to provide a well-balanced education for the students. The only issue is the self-determination in some students. The administration should focus on areas to inspire students because many of them believe an education is unimportant, and means nothing. Of course this might not change, but I would sure like to see more effort out of teachers to deal with the issue.

A generic school system with little excitement. There were very few advanced courses and a limited number of academic clubs. Very little violence, bullying, or gossip. Some very nice and capable teachers, and some not very nice teachers. Overall, it was a very average school system that did little to advance or detriment its students.
Rockingham County Schools are all different, but they all share a common love for the Shenandoah Valley area. The schools are competitive and supportive of each other during sporting events, musicals, and other school events. The students are proud to represent their respective schools, but are also willing to cheer on other neighboring schools in their successes. The Rockingham County Public School community is a positive, caring, and academically successful place to be.
