A really awesome school where most parents are involved in their children's lives. Seriously, these kids have manners! Teachers are above par, AAP teachers way above average.
Just putting this out there, Rocky Run Middle School is the BEST SCHOOL EVER!!!!!!!!! I'm a 7th grader there, and the curriculum is full of challenging material. To all the people who think Rocky Run is not a great school, we outnumber you 5 to 1.
Great teachers and love the new principal. School counselors are very nice. Great teachers, especially math and civics. They stay after school for help. History dept. is very creative. Overall, Rocky Run is a great school and a great learning facility.
Great energy, teachers, extra-curricular programs and culture. Teachers are allowed flexibility in how they present students information and they are top-notch!
I am i student here at Rocky run and I'll say this, it is the best school I've ever been in. I haven't heard of any drama going on yet and everyone is already halfway through the school year. The history department at Rocky Run is the best because of their teaching styles and the interactive activities they make us do. The only bad part about it may be the science department, I feel like the teachers just give us busy work and sit at his desk all day.
I am sorry the most recent post from the parent before this is so hostile. I am writing this to counter their arrogance and note about "TJ" (Thomas Jefferson High School). I am assuming they moved to the area JUST to push for their child to garner acceptance at TJ, and may have RRMS as their scapegoat if their son/daughter does not get accepted. Our child is in the GT (now "AAP") program and doing outstanding. The school, teachers, and principal have a great, caring, and academically challenging team. Our student is in 7th grade algebra honors -- all of his courses are interesting -- and the teachers are incredibly supportive on all fronts. Our student's history teacher was the school district's teacher of the year last year. 'Hope this helps offset some of the previous post's negativity.
Rocky Run is a big disappointment, it tauts itself as the "junior TJ", we have been there two years and yet to have one challenging or even interesting project or assignment, and teachers are mediocre at best.
I'll be graduating from Rocky Run in about two weeks, and I can say from the bottom of my heart that it is the Best. School. Ever. It has amazing teachers, who are soooo understanding and ALWAYS there for you no matter what, the principal is really nice as well as the administration, and the academic department is both challenging and fun, and very beneficial. Rocky Run is very diverse, and there is a place for everyone. I'm so glad I went to Rocky Run!
My son had the choice of middle schools to attend because he is in the AAP program .... he chose Rocky Run. We are only in the first 3 months of 7th grade, but choosing RRMS was the best decision ever made!! The school is well run by the principal; the teachers are fantastic and really challenge their students. My son is really living up to his potential - he has made Honor Roll, and really likes going to school. The teachers really encourage and inspire their studients. The school itself is clean, updated, and fosters an excellent learning environment! So glad we are part of the RRMS community!!!
This school has horrible teacher turn over rate. The principal is rude. My daughter got hurt at school and the staff refused to let her call home and get help.
RR teachers and staff care about the education and well-being of our kids and their community.
Wonderful school with caring involved leadership, excellent teachers, motivated students who are also great kids from great families - everything you could wish for in a great school! In six years in the community I've never heard anything negative said about this school, feel fortunate that my son can attend here - he loves it.
Both our children went to this school and later on to Thomas Jefferson High School. The grounding and basic training at Rocky Run has helped them withstand the academic stress of TJ - 4 years for my son and three for my daughter who is currently enrolled - my daughter's grounding in drama and theater at Rocky Run has helped her acting career at TJ. Both my children were able to maintain their grades and secure high SAT scores because Rocky Run gave them a foundation for self-study, committment to achievement and an excellent group of friends who have stayed around for many years and reinforced each other through the tough times. To the teachers at Rocky Run, Thank you!
I attended a private school before I first came to Rocky Run, and I thought I wouldn't fit in. I love it here! The teachers are amazing and the curriculum is very strong.
This school has a rigorous curriculum. The principal is a forward thinking leader who is grounded in reality. The teachers are energetic and love their jobs. This is a safe environment to which you are happy to send your blooming teenagers.
Rocky Run Middle is an overall great school. There have been no incidents of major bullying, violence, or drugs that I have heard of since I have started attending there. Most of the teachers are well trained and there are a variety of after school activities.
Rocky Run is a really great middle school. Teachers are fun and friendly, almost always upbeat and happy (unless they're sick). The kids there are good people, and in my two years here I've never seen a single bullying incident, or any of those kind of things.
I was reluctant to send my daughter to this schools as all her siblings had attended Franklin Middle but I was pleasantly surprised at the welcoming nature nad high academics.So far I am happy to say it has been a great expeince with the teacher responses and help with homwork. I would suggest this school to others in the future.Keep up the good work and try to hold more outdoor activities in the future.
Rocky Run Rocks! All the kids are very happy there. It is a very wealthy school and the teachers are great. All the kids are awesome and everyone gets a great education.
