Rockbridge County High School is a fantastic school for it's location. Being smack dab in the middle of a heavily agricultural area would make it seem like all it would teach is the next generation of farmers how to tend to the lands. But, not only does it allow any and all students to learn excessively about agriculture, it provides a plethora of other choices for students interested in the math/science field. I enjoyed my years at this high school and would happily send my children there!

I really enjoyed my four years at Rockbridge, with that being said, I also have some complaints about the school as well. Although, there were some amazing teachers, there were others that seemed to only care about the (small) paycheck and not influencing and impacting students. The academics weren't all that great unless you took AP or honors courses, no one took it seriously. Although I have some complaints, Rockbridge was my home and I never felt unwelcomed or unsafe there. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Rockbridge, but as a college student now, I wish that the school was more revolved around academics. First semester was of college was an extremely difficult transition due to the lack of college readiness that the school provided for students. Rockbridge could definitely use some improvements but I believe they are on the right track to becoming a great school.
It is an ok school. There needs to be some updates the the building itself. For instance, the windows are very small and at the top of the wall making it hard to see out. The bathrooms are quite nasty. The food in the cafeteria is unhealthy and small in proportions. As far as the actual education goes we have a pretty well rounded amount of classes to choose from with all skill levels available.
