Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective
July 06, 2015
Horrible, because the way they set up their classroom standards. It's just sad that they let students do whatever they want during classes.

Amount of homework: Not enough

Very very very little amounts. And if you're kids don't like doing Homework or studying this is the right school for your children.

Not really. The School said it has a strict policy in their handbook, but they never enforced any punishment for breaking the rules

It's just horrible respect within students and teachers. The students are worse. The students would fight so much most of them would get detention.

During my classes teachers wouldn't care if international students or students during an exams use their "translators" AKA IPads to help them translate the sentence; instead they use their IPads during an exam and use google for answers. So they basically cheat every time. Which isn't fair because I actually study my butt off for exams while other students cheat.

THe Rock school has great teachers, a strong hard-working principal and vice principal, and a challenging academic program. Although I will never say any school is perfect and I have known some problems to arise, the comparison of this school to my children's prior public school is like night and day. No profanity, no teasing, no writing on bathroom walls, and only students that want to learn, care about grades that are respectful to teachers and parents exist here. Occasionally rules are broken but repeat offenders are removed from the school. The Christian guidance is great! Also as students graduate from the Rock, they clearly stand tall ready to face the world outside, unafraid of the future!

I emailed the school to ask if they were still enrolling. I sent a very nice letter almost a page. I got a one line response back telling me (the Principal) that he did not know if there was an opening and I just needed to stop by and get an application. No greeting, no closing. I was NOT impressed at all. And it is even a "Christian" school. What a dissapointment. It is very difficult to find a good school in Gainesville FL.

This is a truly amazing school. I am beyond pleased with The Rock and my children absolutely love it there. The teachers my children have had so far have been AMAZING! (dedicated, the highest quality, creative). There are high academic, behavioral and character standards. Also, for a smaller school, I was blown away at the quality of the sports program. There is also an atmosphere of peace, order and God's love on campus. I am so thankful for this school!

The Rock School in Gainesville Florida has taught my three children for the previous five years. The school has given my children a excellent education, confidence in themselves and a desire for truth and wisdom. I would recommend every parent find a place like the Rock School for their children. Sincerely, H.Moses

By far this is the best school for education, teaching core values, and for instilling a deeper love for Jesus Christ. I'm proud that my son attends this school!

There are not adequate words to describe this amazing school. Absolutely the highest quality of teachers, academics and sports. Firm but loving discipline.

About this school

The atmosphere at our school is conducive to learning; my teachers are born again Christians that care for their students and try to instill in them more than academics. Character and integrity are integral parts of our daily lives.
