Open Quote The teachers help me when needed and make sure I have all the knowledge I need. They focus on you graduating and succeeding in life rather than your ability to sit at a desk and stair blankly at a wall. If you get bored or need help they have your back. Bullying isn't even close to tolerated anymore. If they see someone acting violent towards another or hateful comments the leave as soon as possible. It is a great at helping students academically excel and I recommend it to any parent wanting to give their child the opportunity to succeed. Close Quote

Open Quote Rochester high school is less than desirable. The principal is very lacking in being competent to run a school. The superintendent has no clue what is going on at the schools. She follows the principals and staff because she lacks confidence and skills to lead. There is no enforcement of rules if your one of the good ol boys kids. Bullying is out of control and staff do nothing to prevent it. One teen suicide recently because of bullying and the school district still won't change how it handles bullying and reporting. School district is great at giving lip service but there is no follow through. It has gotten so bad I removed my kids from the school for fear of their safety. If your looking to go to this school in encourage you to look at other schools. You will be glad you did. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
