Student Supply List

My name is Mr. Ross.  I am the new principal of Rochester Middle School.  I am very excited to be here at RMS.  I have been in education for the past fourteen years.  I started my educational career in Knox Indiana.   Most recently, I was the assistant principal at Hanover Middle School in Cedar Lake Indiana.   We are going to have a great school year.  This year, all students will be issued an iPad.  This will give students the opportunity to collaborate, create and use their imagination.  In addition, we are starting a new positive behavior initiative.  We want to reward students for making good decisions with regard to being respectful, motivated, and socially responsible. I look forward to meeting all of my students, parents, and community members.  Go Zebras!

We will have registration for the 2014-2015 School Year on Monday, July 21st from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Tuesday, July 22nd from 8am to 6pm.   

This registration is for students who were enrolled in the Rochester School Corporation last year.

Students who are new to the Rochester School Corporation will register on Wednesday, July 23rd from 8 am to 2pm.

On line preregistration instructions will be emailed the week of July 14th to all RMS guardians. 

21st Century Scholar Program

Eighth graders are reminded that they have only three days left 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 before school is out.


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.
