Rockwood Area Junior/Senior High School Reviews

I loved growing up in Rockwood with such a small, tight-knit community. my school is very small, about 45-50 kids a graduating class. I think i would choose to go to Rockwood over a larger school because here, everyone knows you, everyone knows your name, and when you need help, you won't have a problem finding it! I also feel due to our low number of students, and great location we have the chance for many opportunities and feild trips other schools don't get. honestly their isnt very much I would change about my school. I'm grateful I was able to attend such an amazing school

Honestly, education here is wonderful. However, the teachers are either amazing or horrible. The students are very nice most of the time. There are a lot of opportunities for after high school offered. Most of the teachers truly care about your well being. They have fairly nice facilities.
Love the small class sizes, awesome teachers and community involvement and support. My first inspiration for a college education came from the recognition and awards given by my teacher Mrs. Henry for academic excellence.
