School Reviews

I have three students attending RBCS. They have attended since they were in K3. I believe that RBCS has helped tremendously in encouraging a Biblical foundation on for my children. They also have received an excellent academic training and are able to be very competitive in college selection.

My children have attended RBCS for the last four years, this being their fifth year there. They are thriving in their classrooms. They are maturing as individuals. They have received the best quality education that we could have prayed for. The staff is well educated, trained, family oriented, and super communicative. I always know what is going on with their classrooms, their progress, their grades. We are a family of RBCS now. We feel so comfortable and attached to RBCS that we could not imagine having our children attend elsewhere. The sacrifices we make so they can attend RBCS are so worth it. God is present in this place.

We started mid-year last year and both of my girls love attending! The academics are rigorous, and they are laying a priceless Godly foundation. The teachers are very caring, and even the principals care about each and every student. I am so thankful every single day for RBCS!

I am an alumna of RBCS, as well as a current employee. I can say honestly that God is working actively in this school! The academics are top-tier, especially in the Language Arts and Literature subjects. I know I personally felt way ahead of my college peers in paper-writing and various other subjects. There are a lot of extracurricular opportunities and activities as well. The hearts of the staff and faculty are deeply devoted to partnering with parents in raising up excellent students who are champions for Christ, and I would highly recommend checking this school out!

I have three children attending Rocky and they love it. It is laying a Godly foundation so they will be able to stand firm in their beliefs and convictions when they enter college. The teachers and staff are wonderful, providing a solid education and a loving environment. Combine all of that with a great sports program and you have RBCS! I am so glad we chose this school.
