ORR, as we call it, is definitely a great school! There is a wide range of Academics offered, all the way from AP Chemistry to AP Art or even AP Psychology. There is a ton of "elective" classes that you can take, such as Philosophy and Architectural Engineering. The teachers are all dedicated to what they are doing, and the students go on to a wide range of universities (recents include Tufts, Georgetown, and Boston University). Outside of school, there is a club for everyone, including the GSA, Latin Club, ESports, Knitting Club, and more. Our sports are highly ranked, they include Cross Country, Golf, Football, Sailing, Baseball, and many more. The school itself contains around 800 students from similar backgrounds, as well as School Choice students and foreign exchange students. Our band and arts programs are excellent as well. Our theater program is probably the most popular club and is also excellent. The school is clean, in a good area, and has resources for everyone.

I had a good experience at old Rochester until the rules became so strict. By my senior year we weren’t able to have our phones on us at all, backpacks weren’t allowed, being in hallways during class was very limited. This ruined the experience for me personally. Besides that the athletics program was amazing and was the best part about the school. I also felt that almost all teachers genuinely cared about the success of their students!
Overall I think Old Rochester is a great school if you are looking to pursue higher education after graduation. The academics are very on-par with (if not better than) private schools in our area, and many of the teachers are passionate alumni from prestigious institutions who really do go above and beyond to help their students succeed. There are a myriad of clubs available to join, and the principal makes it very easy for students to establish new ones if they so desire. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because those who choose to join the military or pursue a trade after highschool instead of college tend to be looked down upon. There are not as many resources for those students who don't want/are unable to pursue a college degree, and the guidance department tends to focus mainly on valedictorians and legacy children while leaving others to struggle through a large chunk of the college process on their own.
