Community Support: The citizens of Rock Hill expect excellence in their schools and are supportive with their time, talents, and financial resources. Our academic programs prepare students for success as they move through our schools on to higher education and the workplace. We believe that when you combine challenging academic courses with exceptional programs in the arts and athletics, you’re giving students the opportunities they need to succeed as responsible, caring adults.

Our schools have an “open door” policy. We want parents at all grade levels to become actively involved in their child’s education, and we gladly provide opportunities for anyone who wants to volunteer to support our students and staff.
