Rochester Middle School's educational program includes all major subjects including advanced classes for language arts, social studies, and math. We have special education and hi-cap programs and are a Title I school. Students can elect to pursue interests through courses in art, STEM technology (3D printing, CAD, robotics, etc.), band, choir, leadership, and project science. Our 7th and 8th grade girls enjoy opportunities to compete against others in our sports league in soccer, volleyball, track, cross country, basketball, and wrestling. Boys compete in football, track, cross country, basketball, and wrestling. All students can participate in a wide variety of after school clubs, including art, chess, knowledge bowl, NANOWRIMO, Latinos Unidos, and robotics.
