The new building is wonderful - a big improvement over the old dump the students were forced to endure before. The next step is to improve the quality of education. In a few areas for a few grades, there is slow improvement. But Rockland still is in the lower levels of the state when it comes to education at any level. The problem has been the lack of desire of the residents of Rockland to support properly funding education - not a big surprise given the lack of understanding by residents that good, strong schools are what attract people to a town and help property values. For some, they seem to believe that bars, gun shops and liquor stores are more important than education children - that's pretty sad. But the good news is a new population has been rolling in and they hopefully will care a lot more about education than the old guard.

this school is amazing now due to the rebuilding project. It look almost like a collage campus. Then teachers are always there for the students and go the extra mile. Same with the staff.

Parking is awful, be careful for kids running through the parking lot, children get a zero everytime they forget homework, teacher puts too much pressure on the kids, they have kids that bully other kids, your child will struggle if they are not already an A student. Almost all staff yes the parent and don't follow through. They don't go the extra mile it is up to you and your child to struggle through this school.

Enthusiastic /Encouraging/Brilliant Teacher Staff - They love what they are teaching as a result the kids love learning. My child comes home from school and gets right to her homework with out me asking her to do it- She wants to do it.

Sad to say this school is not working for the kids at all. If you got a smart kid they will be ok if your child needs help the school may reject them or put them in a sped class no middle of the road for those who need just a little extra help

Despite the school falling apart and very little in the way of financial support from the town. This middle school does an excellent job at being a student centered school. The teachers and administrators do well given their limited resources.

I am positive that safety is an issue in this school, and if something doesn't happen soon there will be some type of tragedy. The school is literally falling down and not up to code. The principal & asst. principal work very well together and are available for any problems. There is a very strong parent advisory council but need more parent involvement.

I think this school is very well put together, although the dress code should be enforced alot more . That does not change my entire feeling for this school. I have not missed honor roll once so far and I has just started 7th grade. The level of parent involvment is very good. Parents can come in and talk to expierienced teachers and staff. Although i don't think they have enough extracurricular activities.

'My daughter just completed the GRADE 5 schoolyear at this school. Her teachers were extraordinary and she not only made the honor roll 3 terms in a row, she enjoyed her learning experience this year. Her reading, writing, & math skills have improved dramatically. These 'Dream Team' teachers were amazing. Ultimately, it is the Teachers & Employees that make the school what it is for the students - and in this case they went above & beyond! A++++ to this school!' - 2003-2004 GRADE 5 PARENT

I think this school is more concerned with making it look good by passing kids on to the next grade that actually should be staying back, but to keep them back would make their teachers look bad, so they give out passing grades to kids that do not deserve them.
