Overall, as a bi white woman, my experience at Rochester Community High Schools was good. While the teachers and academic courses available were all fantastic, I was unfortunately surrounded by bullying and administrative failure to do anything about it. However, I still enjoyed my time there and credit them for my preparedness to pursue my college education.

I loved everything about RHS! The teachers and staff were always so helpful and took time out of their day to understand our personal needs. The academics and diversity of the school was perfect. I learned a lot about the medical field before entering college because of the medical classes that were offered in school. I made memories that will last me a lifetime because of high school sports and different outings that we had together. Overall, the atmosphere of the school was incredible. I would go back to high school if I could.
I was in the Rochester district for just about 4 years, with one semester at RHS. Sadly, I was forced to move due to familial issues. However, the one semester I had at RHS was genuinely amazing. I'm still a freshman, but my freshman experience at Rochester was spectacular. Every teacher really cares about the students. I was allowed to take the courses I wanted to succeed in. The coursework isn't too easy or hard- I find it was a nice medium. The facilities at Rochester are nice- not insanely nice but nice enough. The teachers at Rochester are amazing. They are hands on and interactive with students. You can tell they really care. Student life at Rochester was great- kids are nice and generally not troublesome and it's easy to make friends. Compared to my current experience at a city school, Rochester seems like Heaven. While RHS doesn't seem especially spectacular on paper, I cannot state enough how much this place meant to me.
