I have attended Rocky River since my freshman year. All throughout my years of attending this school my teachers and the administrators all have poured their hearts out into the students and their jobs. I greatly appreciate our principle for all that she does for us, for both our education and our safety. The only thing I would like to see change is how teachers prepare juniors for college. I think they should be more encouraging and helpful about college to the juniors because when they don’t we as seniors are trying our best to fit everything into our senior year. Overall I appreciate and love RRHS for everything!

My school, Rocky River High is a great school. Everyone is very supportive and teachers and staff go out of their way to make the school very family oriented and constantly keeps students and family members involved. We have many events that bring students together and teachers continue to dedicate themselves using hands on teaching. I would not change anything about my school!
While at Rocky River I did not feel very helped about college, the school did not help first generation college students they assumed we knew what was going on. Thankfully I joined student government and it was there where hers helped me apply to colleges. The school is not very diverse most of the student population is hispanic/Latino or African American. Rocky River had few teachers who actually cared about the students. After being there for 3 years I never felt connected to the administration who favored students who weren't on a good path. I believe they did this to try and mentor them4 but nobody mentored the good grade students, unless they joined clubs.
