  • Zebra New Tech High applies to all four grade levels. But more than "new tech", RHS strives to meet student needs. Great opportunities exist for students in all areas:
    • Studying Biomedical Science in our science department
    • Studying Spanish or Chinese to improve foreign language speaking and listening skills
    • Studying World Languages while also gaining an understanding for the cultural aspect
    • Studying engineering in our Project Lead The Way curriculum
    • Learning 21st Century Skills in all classes (collaboration, work ethics, oral presentation, written communication, research, technology)
    • Vocational courses leading to certification in designated areas
    • Fine arts (art and music) and practical arts (agriculture and family and consumer science)
    • Over 30 classes to earn dual credit for high school and college
    American students are falling behind the rest of the world. As educators, students and parents we need to rededicate ourselves to excellence. A stronger partnership needs to exist between parents and educators. Please check your student's status using Harmony (report cards and attendance) and Echo. For Echo, the day to day organizational system used by students, use your student's login and password to check assignments, due dates and daily grades.
    As educators we need to communicate with parents when students are excelling or struggling. Our focus must be on student success.

Press Release from Rochester Community School Corporation

Of the 120 certified teachers at Rochester Community Schools, 37 have registered to take a personal day off of school on Nov. 19, 2019.  That is Organization Day for the Indiana General Assembly and various Teacher Associations around the state have called for teachers to rally for what is called Red for Ed Action Day, supporting education funding and policy changes at the state level of government.

The Superintendent and School Board support equitable funding for public schools, while also believing holding school as scheduled is in the best interests of the students and the educational process. Administration has determined that sufficient staffing is available to provide a safe and educationally viable day for students. 

School will be in session on November 19, 2019.
