I am pleased to welcome you to Rochester Academy Middle School. We are here to support and encourage students as they navigate the middle school years. Adolescence is an exciting and challenging time for everyone, and our teachers and staff are ready to help students build their academic, social and emotional skills.
As we spend the summer welcoming new students in grades 6-8, I am also thinking about graduation this past June. The students who crossed the stage in June were in the eighth grade when I came to Rochester Academy. I am beginning my sixth year with RACS and my fourth year as the building leader at the Middle School. I came to RACS after working in a rural district as an administrator and teacher trainer, and before that I was a high school English teacher.
I am so proud to welcome our new and returning students. I look forward to seeing each Middle School student grow and change over the next several years. I look forward to sharing graduation with these students and their families at the end of their High School career.
