This will be our son's second year at this school. If you are looking for a school that will help your child "find" whom he/she is or if you are looking at an educational climate that is about as free from bullying as an institution can make it, then you have found your school at Rock Point. This school is a place where your student will receive a 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th chance to discover what they are doing to themselves and to others and finally get that " AHA!!" moment so many mainstream kids pick up with little effort. This is NOT a therapeutic school, but is a supportive one. They will take a chance on your child if you will, and more importantly--your child will.
Rock Point School is amazing. My son attended for all four years and he grew into a wonderful, considerate, respectful, and intelligent young man who is now in the process of joining the military. He was exposed to caring adults who really knew him and could accept him for all that he is. They cared about him and held him responsible for his decisions. He was part of a community who worked and played together. It was always a joy to visit him at school and see how much he belonged and how he was valued as a student and as a person.
Rock Point is life changing. It is for students who want to change, and be the best that can be, but for some reason or another, do not have the resources or have gotten off track. I went to Rock Point as a freshman and it was the best decision of my life prior to that point. I am now a successful college student at an amazing liberal arts school. Not only did Rock Point help me turn my life around, the staff always saw the good in me, even if I could not yet see it in myself. They pushed me academically and artistically, as well as socially. I learned to be the person that I always thought I could be, but never knew how to become.
Our daughter spent her junior and senior years at Rock Point and emerged as a confident, competent and well prepared young adult. Rock Point was a small, nurturing environment that recognized and developed her strengths as well as identifying and supporting her as she improved in areas that needed help. The Rock Point community of staff and teachers is phenomenal. They are a group of caring and dedicated people who are involved in every aspect of student life at Rock Point. Our daughter is now a successful and happy college freshman thanks to the preparation that she received during her years at Rock Point.
Our daughter recently graduated from Rock Point School. We were very impressed with Rock Point and have only positive things to say about the school s staff and model. The dorm staff, administrators, teachers, and support staff are remarkably knowledgeable, humane, insightful, supportive, devoted, enthusiastic, and constructive in their approach to teens and their families. Rock Point s admissions process is extraordinarily thorough, which enhances the likelihood that students who enroll are a good fit and will thrive. Rock Point accurately describes itself as a school for students who have struggled in traditional school settings, done lots of hard work, and are on their way up. We were particularly impressed with Rock Point's use of constructive behavior management tools, extending the leash and pulling it in as needed for each student. Staff are always thinking about ways to provide students with constructive social and educational challenges, appropriate incentives, and reasonable, fair consequences.
We have found that for the tuition of this school that after graduating you can not attend any thing other than a community college without your child attending the public school at an additional cost for the classes. If we wanted our child in public school then we wouldn't have put her in a boarding school. We have also found that the supervision of the children does not meet the standards of most parents.
