I believe the Rock School is AWESOME! One of my children's class is 50% minority and I have never seen or heard of any prejudice actions occuring. I think people would be surprised to find out how many children attend on scholarships and to describe as 'preppy' is completely absurd. Yes, the children must wear uniforms but have freedoms with hair and shoes. I've seen mohawks and dayglo Converse! No locks exist on the lockers; book bags and lunches hang freely in the halls and on many occasion I've witnessed high schoolers helping elementary school kids carry books and tudor homework.
I feel confident that my children will never be bullied EVER! And I praise the strictness of Principal Bob Carter for maintaining that great atmosphere! I feel that the punishments fit the crimes. If you send your unrulely smart -mouthed children to the Rock, please expect that your child's attitude will be expected to changed or he/she will be punished. Attitudes are not allowed here!
The school graduation rate is superb and scholarships are offered to MANY of the seniors. The curriculum is great and many AP classes are offered. Highshooler are issued a netbook.
