Rockaway Collegiate High School Reviews

Rockaway Collegiate High School has been an interesting experience overall. My graduating class is full of kids who help one another and strive to bring out the best in each other. My teachers are people I trust to talk to if I ever have a problem, academic or personal. They do their best to ensure that I graduate on time and most of them are very fair with the time appointed for an assignment. However, that doesnt mean the course work isnt rigorous, it most definitely is. As whole, the school needs a lot of improvements safety wise and they definitely need more after school clubs and activites to give students a sense of involvement. (I.e a gardening club, band, art club, etc). Like every school, this one has its highs and its lows.

The school was pretty good, but their need to be a few change to the schoo. Like more involvement with administrators, letting them hear the student on how to improve the school.
Through out my experience in this school I have always had to be direct with staff such as counselors, due to the inconsistency of keeping students updated with grades, credits and classes. However one good thing about this school in the free AP courses they give. Although if I could do it all over i would not choose this school because of the lack of activities, unbalanced structure and freedom and inconsistency of notification.
