School Reviews

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.
