Rockford High School Reviews
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.
I really liked my experience with Rockford High School. Although it's a big school with about 600 per class, its size is its advantage. It's just big enough where there's a group for everyone, but small enough so that it doesn't feel overwhelming. I would like to see more diversity in Rockford High School in particular, however. The majority of students are white while a minority are Asian. Even rarer are African American students and hardly ever seen are students of other ethnicities. It may be hard to achieve this diversity since the majority of students are from the primarily-white suburb of Rockford, but it would make the school more inviting and accepting.
Some things that I loved about Rockford was the passion that every teacher seemed to have whenever any of them would step foot into the classroom. Even for classes that would have students frustrated in, the teachers did the best of their ability to assist those that needed and wanted to learn more from them by either teaching lessons a different way or by waiting after/before school for students who couldn't come in for the extra help during lunch. Some things that I wish would change is the funding that is towards the athletic program vs the funding towards the music departments. Even though we have a terrific staff for teaching freshmen to seniors at Rockford, the supplies necessary to carry out all of the hard work is left short. Whereas the other sports teams are getting new fields and new equipment, the Rockford High School is in dire need of some new practice rooms with new pianos that aren't falling apart.
