4 Heads of School in 7 years 4 Directors of College Counseling in 7 years Lack of stability in school leadership

No issues during my many years at RHS.

The ACE program seems to work really well for students who need additional support outside of the classroom beyond what their teachers can provide.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Four Heads of School in seven years. Enough said.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
Some are really good (take the Holocaust course and Human Physiology), but others are to be avoided like a certain someone in the Math department who should have retired years ago.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Some classes like Honors English 10 have hours of homework per night. Some teachers think that they are "good" only if they assign WAY too much work.

Rocky Hill provides a great environment to learn and create friendships. Our daughter attended grades 9-12. While a smart student, she struggled at the larger public middle school with the numerous distractions. While every school has distractions, RHS class size is small and the Harkness Table approach allows the students to focus. She thrived at RHS and made many friends. The opportunites beyond the classroom are numerous and the campus is outstanding located on Narragansett Bay. One minor issue is the turnover of personnel in the upper school over the past few years. That may be normal for a small private school - not sure. Overall our daughter had a great experience with many excellent teachers and I would recommend the school.

One of the highlights of Rocky Hill School is its ability to provide each student with individualized attention. The faculty have a deep dedication to the progress and well-being of each student. The curriculum is supported through many community activities and hands on experiences. Additionally, student progress in the arts, sports and community activism is reinforced and publicly acknowledged. There is great communication between the school and the families and we are grateful to be a part of this wonderful community of faculty, staff and families.




- a
This school is overall wonderful and my children love it. However, the teachers could become more proactive in helping students strengthen the emotional part in their lives. My children often tell me about struggles they face with little assistant, and even added pressures or stress. Other than that, Rocky Hill is wonderful and sending my children there was the right decision. They have become more independent and self reliant.



- a
Rocky Hill School is an exceptional learning environment and it is also such a welcoming community. While I am always struck by the sheer beauty of the campus, it is the dedication of the faculty that makes the school outstanding. The small class size allows student's to be enriched across disciplines. My daughter has been able to explore interests in robotics, programming, sculpting and the marine environment and she is only in sixth grade. Rocky Hill is exceptional.
