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 Mr.Kreamer 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.



iPads at RMS!

The focus of the iPad program at Rochester Middle School is to provide tools and resources to the 21st Century Learner.
