This school has improved over the last years. New teachers have been hired and the administration is really great. They also have a wonderful after school program

If you are considering moving to this community- DON'T. If you were not born here, you will never be treated like a valuable member of the community. Our family has lived here for over 10 years and are still treated like outsiders. In addition, this town cannot make a good economic decision to save it's life. Yes, it is a poor economy but the people who run this town just don't have a clue and are grinding this town down to dust. Try Thorndale or Milano, they are improving.

My kids were doing very well in Rockdale elementary. The teachers always involved the parents, and had many activities and programs for my kids. We had to move and we miss it there!
