Rochester is a great high school. The school has great teachers, it is very diverse, it is very safe, and awesome school spirit. Our student section is often voted the best in the state of Michigan. All of the teachers are extremely caring, and all want their students to succeed. The school was recently renovated within the past few years, and so nothing is broken down or old. Rochester has great technology; everything is very innovative and new. They even recently got a therapy dog! The only thing that I would say is not to love about this school is how strict the administrative staff is. The principals are all very kind, however, have very strict policies.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a falcon! Rochester High School has incredible faculty, great after school activities, amazing sports teams, modern facilities, and impeccable school spirit. However, I wish there was more diversity amongst the faculty and student body. As well as I think the curriculum in classes lacked diversity.
I love everything about Rochester. It’s such a progressive school that is constantly trying to improve. As a member of student council, I try to help in any way that I can, including fun school events, dances, and promoting all of our extracurriculars! We even paint the hallways and classrooms! It’s a very fun environment overall. The only thing that I would change is I would love for more arts classes to be offered, like a drama club, a fine arts, or even dance classes!
