A Message from the Superintendent
Welcome to Rockland Public Schools. The last few months have seen tremendous changes in our district as our new middle school has opened and our high school renovations near completion. With the fifth grade moving to the middle school, the elementary schools have, for the first time, space for art rooms, science rooms and expanded libraries. For the first time, we have full-day kindergarten in our district and we look forward to expanding it. We are very proud of the quality of education we are able to offer to all Rockland students.
Technology in Rockland Public Schools is seen as tool to enhance student engagement and allow students to expand their learning in a way that was previously unavailable. All Rockland classrooms are equipped with interactive projectors or SmartBoards. In the middle and high school students have laptops or iPads available to them. Our library lends of Kindle Ereaders to the students.
Our Visual Arts programs are award winning, with a burgeoning program in digital photography as well as visual art and pottery. Our theater guild produces several productions a year in our 730 seat auditorium. Our biennial Shakespeare festival is always a sold out success.
Our athletes are recognized both for their achievement and their sportsmanship. The majority of our coaches are teachers at the school which allows for our philosophy of hard work and sportsmanship to pervade our program.
Academic expectations are high in Rockland Schools. In each of the last two years Rockland students have been accepted at Harvard and our achievent as a whole as measured by the MCAS testing has steadily improved.
