Pride In Excellence

The Rochester Community School District is part of a treasured community that is rich in tradition, where partnerships between families, schools, and businesses are integral for student success. Our mission is to provide a quality education in a caring atmosphere so all students can attain the necessary skills and knowledge to become lifelong learners and contribute to a diverse, interdependent and changing world.

Programs and services include: pre-kindergarten classes for children, ages 3 and 4 years; comprehensive K-12 curriculum; adult education courses; special education for ages 0-26; award-winning art and music programs; before and after-school child care; and community enrichment programs.
