RHS provides small classes, a challenging curriculum and a warm, nurturing environment that allows children to thrive. My three children have all graduated from Rockport High and have gone on to excellent liberal arts schools. There are also great art, theater, music and sports opportunities. They also offer a successful DECA program.

Lacks activities. Lacks professional coaches for sports. Lacks school team spirit. Lacks challenging my kids educationally even though they are in honors - And the principal is the worst... There isn't enough space to write the problems due to his lack of follow through and inability to listen to parents, kids and staff. You can even ask the teachers, in private of course. Mention his name, they just frown and shake their heads. And the school lacks social services for kids and families BIG time.

My child is an 8th grader and we are about to leave. Core class education is good, however small school favoritism is evident. Seems like the same students chosen for roles in plays, in athletics. Limited afterschool activities, and I don't see much parent participation at the middle school. Maybe that's normal. May be due to vision and/or lack money. They have a new superintendent - maybe there will be improvements. Either great teachers or poor teachers.

The school does very little to help the students that are floundering. There seems to be great favoritism toward the ones who succeed with little effort. My child came home one semester with all failing grades(her own fault ) but not one teacher contacted me to let me know what was going on. Progress reports are only sent via e-mail and if you don't have an e-maill address or haven't signed up then no effort is made to contact you.

Both, my wife and daughter('07) have graduated from RHS. High % of 'highly qualified' teachers and good standardized test scores. Every student has an opportunity to fit in here. Opportunities abound for AP offerings, student activities, sports, etc. Each teacher learned about my daughters abilities and pushed her to excel. I am thrilled to have had my daughter have her HS experience at RHS.
