The school will always be my favorite but the only issue is the super strick rules there like rips on your thighs or a womans bra strap showing. I was wearing a simple v-neck t shirt and made me change because of my breast. Most teachers are very vert strick and are like robote with no fun in the class room, some amazing teachers are Mrs.Waldo the band teacher is the sweetest. Mr.bugos understands what kids have so much eork and tries giving less work so kids don't have ti stress so much. The worst thing about the school is lunch and free time they get 2 mins after lunch to talk and have to sit in line order with class, dismissed by table, it serious feels like prison at lunch, but yea shoutout to Mrs.waldo for being the best teacher
Our son will be entering the 7th Grade at Rock Lake for the coming school year. He spend 6th Grade at Rock Lake, and it was a very positive experience. He comes in with some challenges... ASD, ADHD, Dysgraphia, and EFD. He is mainstreamed, and the assistance provided from the IEP staff has been stellar. Gifted teachers are outstanding. There is a bit of fighting at this school, but it seems to be addressed and handled immediately. The Band teacher is amazing, and my son thoroughly enjoyed this teacher along with his Science teacher. Great school, great admin... all in all, a terrific experience.
my son with an IEP was singled out and bullied not by the students but by staff . One going as far as to saying my son with autism was turning it on and off at his convenience. The teachers have favorites and are likely due to whose parents make the most money. it is a good school if you are wealthy and . and plan not to have a child with any type of disability
Rock Lake Middle School is basically a jail. The students are treated like prisoners with overly strict rules, the manditory use of lanyards, and the lack of freedom. The school is in major need of updating. The students have only the option to choose band, chorus, and robotics as their electives, all other electives are randomly given out to students. Some teachers are not prepared to teach their class, especially in the math department. Teachers lack enthusiasm and rarely do anything fun in class. The kids have no choice on where to sit in the cafeteria and only have 2 minutes of free time outside. Overall major improvements are needed at Rock Lake.
My experience is that this school has shown many examples of poor leadership, surprising unorganization with lackluster enthusiasm. There are some great teachers who stand out, but not nearly enough. Many of my child's teachers have no passion and are just dead lifeless robots. Too many teachers display a sense of dissatisfaction and unhappiness there. This school is not impressive, it gets a grade of a C - .
