I have children that attended the Rock from elementary through high school. We have had a great experience with the school. The teachers are not only excellent academic instructors, but they care about the students. Since the student body is small than that allows more contact with the teachers. The smaller student body makes it difficult to piece together sports teams. If you want a school where the goal is to have a godly atmosphere as well as superior academic standards, then this is your school.

I am an alum here. The Rock Academy was great until the new administration stepped in when I was about to graduate. A lot of students left because of that. I see one of the reviews here saying that some graduates from the Rock go to Dartmouth and Cal, but this is partially incorrect. No one has ever gone to Cal. I got lucky and currently go to a well-know school, but I honestly feel like the Rock has not prepared me well academically as I am struggling in college. However, I shall point out that some of the teachers here are excellent-- some teachers and admin staff are not. Overall, I have a mixed feeling about my alma mater.

This school is honestly the nicest school ive ever stepped into, in both ways. The staff and kids are so helpful and positive, and the campus is small but homely. I love the help they give literally every student to ensure a fantastic education. The only thing they could improve on is connecting the church to the school more. Also, the library is barely used as a library and I love to read on my downtime as a student.

The Principal and Student body at this school are the worst. They lack people skills, they bully and have major attitude. If you want to go to a school full of bully's from 6th grade on, then, this is your school. Your child will not be safe at this school.

THE BEST PRIVATE SCHOOL IN THE COUNTY. My children have attended Horizon Christian Academy, Francis Parker, and Torrey Pines High School. When The Rock Academy opened it's doors for the High School I had to give it try, and ever since I have not looked back. Their faith based college prep courses, championship athletics, and elite performing arts are bar none. Let me put it this way, two of my son's best friends graduated last year from The Rock Academy and are attending Dartmouth College and Cal Berkeley... They both have straight A's and are setting the curve in every class. Whether you are Christian or not, the morals and principal's that this school instills in its students of integrity, honesty, loyalty, and hard work, are what is good in society today. It is comforting to know that there are still academic institutions out there such as The Rock that are building tomorrow s leaders.

We have been at The Rock Academy for two years. The teachers are great and the academics are EXCELLENT! The admin people are great as well and they are tight on security. My children are ahead of other children we know around their age group. I highly recommend this school to parents.

My son attended the preschool for 2 years and is beginning his first year of kindergarten. We are very happy with the education he is receiving and the environment he is in while at school. Our friends have 3 children - 3rd, 4th, and Sr and they all love the Rock!

I am starting my third year at The Rock and going into 9th grade. The school is well organized and has an amazing academic program. I have never been great at math but The Rock teachers will sit down with you and go through the material until it clicks. I have always been very reserved and not really open to talk with other people unless ive known them for a long time. The Rock has changed that mentality for me. Yes, they can be too on your case and not very open but, overall its a great school...as a student I definetly reccomend it...

I am very happy with the school environment, academics, social beat, and staff. My son has been there since Kindergarten and he's well mannered, well educated, and enjoys going to school. Parents and kids there are all great. This is definitely not a place for the uninvolved though.

Our daughter has just begun this year at The Rock, and so far things have been great. She is academically challenged, the teachers and administrators are excellent and dedicated, and the school is amazingly organized and efficiently run. I will recommend The Rock to anyone who is looking for a safe, well run and academically challenging school for their kids to attend. Great grown ups and friendly students!
