    I had four children attending Rockway before we moved out of the area. I truely loved the staff and students. The academics were appropriate including gifted programs and special needs. All extracurricular activities are available depending on age. Parents are highly involved in all areas of the education - right down to parent helpers in the classroom. Rockway is a great school to have your child(ren) in from first grade to eighth grade. You will find a high emphasis on preventing and educating the children on topics of bulling and peer pressure to prevent any violence in or out of school. The entire staff is dedicated to nourish a positive enviornment for students and family. I miss the school tremendously. I hope you choose Rockway as it is one of the last of it's kind.
