Indiana Department of Education Letter Grade Ranking 2014 and 2015

Welcome to the Rochester Community High School web site!

As Principal, I believe you will find our website informative and a useful tool to gather information regarding RHS.

Rochester High School is an outstanding high school where we are committed to the success of each of our students. Strong parental involvement in the education of their children is a vital component to our success. Working together, we are helping the children grow into readers, writers, creative thinkers, and problem solvers, as we prepare them for life in the 21st century.

Many changes are coming to RHS. New courses and dual-credit opportunities are being expanded.  More Project Lead the Way classes are being offered including CIM and Biomedical Sciences.

There are many ways for you to communicate with us. Our address, phone numbers, and email address are listed here on the website. We look forward to hearing from you regarding anything that can help us continue to thrive as an excellent school.

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.
To get login information to access your child’s Echo program which contains, their class agendas, grades, assignments etc., send an e-mail to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and she will fix you up with login information.
