It seems is a really good school. However, the heavy bullying is out of control. My daughter had to be hospitalized due to bullying and self harm. When you speak with the principal or counselor is very limited to what they can do. It's sad to say that the school is not focus on. The safety of the students. All I see they evaluate is performance & IQ. We send our student to school to get prepare for their life as adults not to get harass and or bullied by others.

Rocky Hill Middle School is an amazing school to which I am proud to have gone. By no means is it an "advanced" school. Students who try should easily be able to be successful in this less-than-invigorating program. Higher knowledgeable students may feel disappointed by the lack of challenge, but they will soon find their own in above-grade math classes. Some teachers lack knowledge of the subject, but that is a problem all schools must face. The majority of teachers kind, smart, humorous, and all-in-all a pleasure to be around. Extracurricular activities range quite a bit, but aren't too broad. Every month there is a set of sport available for students to participate in after-school for no extra charge. These activities vary from archery, to dodge-ball, to field hockey, and everything in between. The arts-rotation program gives students a healthy dosage of different types of art so they may choose which to pursue, should they feel it's their cup of tea. Not going to lie, the lavatories are often under-supplied, at least in my experience as a female. The cause lies in the school's lack of female building-service managers. The school has 3 floors, each assigned to a grade level, though I see it as a bit inconvenient. The first floor is for 8th graders, the second floor is for 6th graders, and the third is for 7th graders. I always thought that the first floor should be for 6th graders but, then again, after 3 years of middle school, the 8th graders earned the break. All-in-all, Rocky Hill is a good school with fun staff, fun events, and an average curriculum sure to fit students of all levels. Students often take the school for granted, though, not realizing that it's probably one of the best behavior-wise out there. I can't stress enough, though, that some very particular teachers work the extra mile to make the school a better place, but I'll leave that for the new students coming in to find out who they are. Overall rating: 8.5/10

I do recommend this school to others because it's a rating of 7/10 and that's a pretty good school to go to. Also the teachers and people there are really nice. It's a very big school from the inside and it has 3 floors how amazing is that!!! Some schools don't even have that.
