Sixth grade was a great year for my son at Rocky Hill. He had fantastic teachers for all of his academic classes who were engaged and enthusiastic about their classes. The only less than thrilling experiences were with the FACS class (home economy) and shop class. These teachers had no desire to be in the classroom and the kids picked up on it. PE department is also great along with the administration. A positive environment for middle school.

My daughter is going into 8th grade and she loves Rocky Hill. She is challenged by the classes. She says her teachers are approachable. She loved her principal her 1st year (Mr. Edmondson), but only kinda likes her current principal. We are happy with the teachers response in posting her grades.

I'm an eighth grader at Rocky Hill who has been going to school there for three years now. Rocky Hill is a great school overall. The teachers are mostly good and try to engage the students. Its a very diverse school but is a little cliquey. Most people stick to their groups of 4-5 people. There are fights OCCASIONALLY and drugs/alcohol are not commonly seen and mostly occur in eighth grade, if seen at all. A lot of people say it is a "ghetto" school, but compared to other middle schools in the area, it is pretty decent. The atmosphere and classes are interesting and help us learn. The schedules can be confusing at first, but most students get the hang of it in the first month. The only down side is that Rocky Hill was WAY overcrowded. the hallways are always packed and at times it can be hard to move from one class to the next because of all the people. They are working on fixing this but its difficult to have that many people in a school that was made for a lower number of students. They have a good selection of extra curricular activities and sports teams. I would recommend this school.

Our daughter is in the 7th grade and in her second year at Rocky Hill. She loves the school and I'm happy to see the teachers and administrators so involved in the students' learning.

We pulled our student from this school, a lot of bullying and disrespect towards teachers. Foul language runs rampant, little girls (7th/8th graders) dressed inappropriately. Administration was somewhat receptive but really nothing they could do of benefit our student. The school is very over crowded and the hall ways are not monitored well. The education standards do not even come close to Department of Defense schools. I would not recommend a new student come to this school.

As a student at Rocky HIll, and a previous student at a small private school, i would just like to say that RHMS is a great place for learning and the 'pride' program is teaching the students how to be good. so i think the school deserves a 10 out of10!

I felt very fortunate to send my child to Rocky Hill school. She learned alot in the whole 3 years in RHMS. Teachers and staffs were great and helpful. My daughter was in Honor list and now she attended Magnet program in Poolesville. Good environment and great school. I am more than happy to send my child to RHMS. I am specially thanks all to the teachers and principal to help our kids successful and make different in our community. I am Highly recommend to RHMS and continues to do the best.

Rocky Hill is a great school. We're a military family that has experienced good schools whereever we've lived but, I am impressed by the motivation of the teachers and mostly by the principle, Mr. Whiting. This school has great spirit, motivation and has a great curriculm. My daughter is now a 7th greater and loves it here. I see that she is challenged in her courses and that there is alot of activities to get involved in. She likes the people and there seems to be no real distractions in the student body. Everyone here is encouraged to take pride in school.. 6th grade was the best experience for any new middle schooler. I highly recommend this school to everyone who wants to get a great education with great teachers and a cool principal.

The teachers are great there; they're encouraging, fun, and willing to spend time with a student struggling and answering questions . The only reason a kid is failing is that they don't ry or struggling with their studies and don't ask for help. I'm one of the first eight graders to complete the whole 3 years at the new RHMS and watch how the school is improving each year. The PRIDE program is pretty fun and probauly is the reason why suspention rates are going down. I love those paw stickers. :) RHMS also tries to regonize students in different areas and for their acheviments ( academics, communtiy service, after school activites, reading, and respect). But the bathrooms are already falling apart and some kids slack off.

I belive that rocky hill is a very well educated good school and I would recommend everyone to let their children study in this school. They let the children reach the highest of there potentials and they help every single child that needs help. The new rocky hill middle school is also bigger than other middle school and it is cleaner then other school since it is newly made!
