Everyone acts like ROC is the greatest place ever. It isn't. The teachers are amazing but many of the kids are judgmental, small minded, and bullies. It wouldn't be as much of an issue if the school was bigger but because it is so small a few peoples opinions of one person can influence the whole school creating a very emotionally unsafe environment for the people that have been chosen as the school punching bag. I would advise you to go here if you need teachers that can give you individual attention but really beware.

Let's be honest here. This school is NOT a "clean, drug free, and sober environment.", but it IS somewhere where you can feel completely comfortable being yourself. So far there don't seem to be any cliques. Everybody talks to everybody. If you're shy, don't worry about not making friends... people will come up to you and talk(: The teachers are awesome and they are constantly encouraging the students to do their best. The work is fairly easy, so if you aren't the smartest student, no need to worry(: And if you're behind on something, they'll help you to catch up and maybe even get AHEAD. :D So drop your drama at the door, and come join this open, AWESOME environment.

I like small schools and the teachers are great. Jay, our Principle, is the best guy you'll ever meet and is willing to give anyone a chance to make it in school. We're not like other schools, we're more like a family, cause everyone has respect for everyone. Making it so there are no fights and not as much drama. This is the best school I have ever been too. Thanks for having ROC as a school in Rochester. Parents don't worry about sending your kids there cause the school is a clean, drug free, and sober environment. We plan on keeping it that way too.

ROC has been been a life saver for my daughter. My daughter struggled through elementary & middle school and we feared that she would get into high school and have the class work be way over her head and for her to give up and drop out. My daughter gets up for school everyday she still struggles with getting work done but she is learning and growing everyday. Thanks to Jay and the staff my daughter is competing her 10th grade year and is excited to go to college once she graduates from high school. Rochester Off Campus Charter High School is a dream come true.

ROC as we like to call it is not just a school for us, it's our home. And a home we helped to create at that. ROC is not made up of students that are drug deals, criminals, drop-outs and all the other crazy sterotypes that we have had to listen to. Myself, I'm a single mother and a rape survivor and ROC has helped me through the tough times in raising my son and going through the court process of trial. Jay Mar isn't a principal but he's our best friend, our Papa Bear. If it wasn't for ROC and Jay Mar I truly believe that I to would be a single teen mother that dropped out. Thank you Rochester Off Campus and most of all Jay Martini. Please come and visit our school our doors are always open. 'ROC it's not just a school... It's a attitude!!!' Samantha D.
