It's the typical small town Tx experience that you usually see portrayed in the movies. Everyone knows everyone and everything is about Football. Although there are the usual academic organizations such as NHS and the student council, there's not much more unless you're in the band or you play sports.

My school has prepared me for my future success. I willl always be grateful for all the opportunities my teachers have given me and the way they have guided me all my many endeavors. Rockdale High School/ Rockdale Career Academy have prepared me for a career in Sport Management. I took classes at RCA that will count towards my college career. By taken college courses early, I know what expect when I start In the Fall at Kennesaw University. I will always have a love for my high school and all the life- long friendships that were made over the course of 5 years. If there were anything that I would change, it would be to become more technologically advanced so that each student would be ready for college.
The people at Rockdale High School was great. We had really good, funny, interactive teachers. I liked the events that Rockdale High School had on certain days like pep rallies, red ribbon day etc.
