Great school. Could use a lot more parent involvement. Academics great and the availability of all the arts is fantastic. Good teachers too.
In essence, this arts school serves as a feeder to the wildly successful Lois Cowles Harrison School for the Visual and Performing Arts in Lakeland, Florida. Arts training starts young, with serious dedication beginning in the third grade. Although K-5 students are still exposed to lessons in all of the arts, middle schoolers dedicate all of their elective classes to one of the 'majors': band, dance, drama, orchestra, visual art, or vocal. While the academic load is exactly the same as any other school, the two-period per day arts emphasis provides these students with training that allows for successful auditions at the nearby high school for performing and visual arts mentioned above. Parent involvement is extremely high, with most of these parents going on to support their students at the high school level. The fine, dedicated teachers believe they are providing lifelong education and direction to their students through the arts.
My daughter has just started 1st grade at this school. I chose it because of the wonderful program and very caring staff. We are very excited about this upcoming year at Rochelle.
My daughter has attended Rochelle since kindergarten and now she is going to the sixth grade. The teachers have so much concern and care about the students. Grade A school all the way.
I think that the classroom size is a lot smaller so the teacher gets to spend alot more one on one time with each child.
