Rochester High School Reviews
The offerings Rochester High School had on me made me a successful college student. I was offered multiple college courses and the teachers were knowledgable about the topics. On the other hand, the cafeteria was outstanding. We were able to choose different foods every day! We could choose from sub sandwiches, salad, French fries, fried food, ice cream, etc! Our sport teams were also very athletic. Our football team won eight state championships in the last decade! Our sporting facilities are all updated as well. As I went to school everyday I didn't have to worry about the safety in our school. Because of the recent school shootings around the world, we kept an officer on site of the campus at all times. I felt completely safe every day at school and I felt that the environment of the school was very pleasing and made students eager to learn.
I had a great experience with teachers that genuinely cared about their subjects and their students. Academics, arts, and sports couldn't be beat in the area and the facilities are new and kept in nice condition. When I graduated in 2017, my graduating class was between 190 and 200 students. Each classroom had between 15-30 students depending on the course level. The school has extremely low diversity, enrolling over 99% white students.
Rochester High School does a very good job of staying on top of the most recent technology. They do their best to expose their students to the best resources they can afford to give them. The teachers do a good job of helping students outside of class time, but they can improve on searching out kids to give extra help to. The teachers usually wait to be asked but some students are embarrassed to get extra help unless it is offered.
