I love my school. Although we have an extremely small population of students, it is a great school. The teachers are great, they take the time out of their schedules to help each student. I wouldn't change a thing!

I think Rocky Gap is a wonderful place to go for anyone of any age. It is so friendly and has wonderful after-school activities. The teachers are wonderful and make the children feel like they are intellegent and are worth the time of teaching them. And it is a small enough school that you know just about everyone and there is no 'cliques' or 'cool' or 'geeky kid' groups.

I believe that Rocky Gap High is one of the best schools that I have attended. Not only are the academic programs great, the people are very respectful and nice. There are many extracurricular activities if students wish to get involved in them. Parents are very involved in the school by organizing funraisers and sport events. Rocky Gap not only has high education quality but good people.

The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
