Rocky Hill is a fabulous town to grow up in. The town itself provide ample opportunities to get involved with the community all year round, especially in the warmer months. The school system has knowledgeable teachers and kind staff who provide an excellent education. Many restaurants across town serve a variety of delectable food; no need to travel far! Overall, Rocky Hill is considered a small town with a large amount of features sure to please all who live in or near the town.
I attended elementary and middle school in Rocky Hill and then transferred to a magnet school for high school. The town itself is small and peaceful in nature, with a safe environment to raise families. However, I would love to see the diversity increase in the town as Rocky Hill tends to be limited to the experience of its residents without regard for other lifestyles. Once this diversity is acknowledged, I believe it can better the education system as well as the transition once leaving Rocky Hill.
