Rockford High School is a very big school in west Michigan, around 700 people in each graduating class. With such a big school you would think that it wouldn't be very successful, but I have succeeded here with so many others and loved every experience we had.
Multiple clubs, sports, and other activities for you to do. I have been in Rockford's Marching Band. I was a Drum Major, a Drum Major is the highest leadership position possible in our band, we only have 3-4 out of 300 every year. Our band has been very including for everyone to come into our large family.
Our teachers here are very knowledgeable, they love to share what they know with everyone in their class and out. They make sure we are ready for the upcoming challenges like college, Jobs, and anything they know we'll face in our lives.
Rockford is an outstanding school, I'm very happy I went here!

Rockford Senior High School is academically a great school. Plenty of opportunity for high school students to find what interests them. At Rockford, there is plenty of honors and Advanced Placement, art, and gym classes to take. There are about six hundred students per class. Due to this high number, athletics are competitive for varsity and junior varsity sports. Many varsity players practice year-round to keep their spot on the team. At Rockford, students can easily find themselves feeling like a number due to how many students are at Rockford; however, there are plenty of amazing teachers and clubs within the school to subsidize this. I would like to see more racial diversity in the school. The majority of the students who attend Rockford are predominantly white or of caucasian background. Rockford is diverse in the sense of financial backgrounds; however, predominately Rockford is an upper-middle-class area.
There are many opportunities and many things to be involved with. We have many different clubs, plays, and sports. You also can easily start a club with a staff member’s help. We are on trimesters which allows you to have a lot more elective classes and take some more classes of your choice! It’s a great school with a great atmosphere. The facilities are nice and up to date. We also have lots of security guards to make sure everyone is always safe and being taken care of. I would definitely recommend it if you want a great education and a safe atmosphere.
