    • OscarWelcome to Rochester Middle School's website. RMS leads with innovation, inspired teaching, and creative learning. Our faculty and staff make collaboration and relationship building a top priority to ensure student growth.  We strive to create a 21st century learning environment that better prepares our students for their future.  RMS students have many opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities including: sports, clubs, academic competitions, and leadership roles. Rochester Middle School is a great place to learn, grow and give as our Mission states. I would like to extend a personal invitation to all parents and community members to visit our school and spend some time with us, give some feedback, and become an active part of what makes our school such an awesome place.
