This school has serious issues with the professionalism with the staff and the students unless you are Rockmart itself. If you were to choose an area to live and let your kids go to a good school, then avoid Rockmart and Polk County AT ALL COSTS.

I have to say that I am glad that my child transferred out of Rockmart High School. The staff are unprofessional to the point where they don't know how to control themselves more than the kids. I know that schools have their problems, but this place, well, they have their "tradition." If you're not following tradition, then good luck.

I myself have attended RHS, and the staff, including principals, are racist, and the whole town has 'good ol boy' syndrome. I would not trust Rockmart High School with my cats let alone my own children. If you move to this area school, you will feel the tension and racism as you walk in.

I spent the first three years of my high school years here. It is great!


Posted August 26, 2003

I had a child to graduate in 2003, and I have one there now in the 10th grade. I have had a very pleasant experience with the principal, vice-principals, office staff, and teachers. Any time I had a question, problem or to just thank them, they have always made time and listened. We may not always have agreed, but in the end my child always benefited and I know this was due in part to the great leadership we have at the school. I have been very pleased.
