iPads have been issued to every student at Rochester Middle School.  Each grade level teacher has requested iPad applications that will assist in teaching 21st century skills and increase student achievement.  Many textbooks can be accessed on-line.  RMS students will be using a learning management system called “My Big Campus.”  Parents can checkup on student assignments and grades by signing into “My Big Campus” and/or “Harmony.” 


21st Century Scholar Program

Eighth graders are reminded to apply for the 21st Century Scholar Program and, if eligible, be awarded a 21st Century Scholarship that covers your tuition to a state college for four years. Online application can be found at See Ms. Menis at the office for more information.


Incorrect Phone Number

In the Rochester phone book, for Rochester Community Schools, the Middle School Attendance Office phone number is listed as 223-1521.
That is incorrect and no longer in service. Parents should call the school at 223-2280 and the phone will prompt you to push #8 for the attendance.
