Rochester Community Schools transcends its history of excellence to enhance teaching and learning.
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.
