At Rockwood Preparatory Academy we strive to have open, honest, and regular communication with all families in our school community.   Here are some of the recent comments we’ve received via social media, Google reviews, and our weekly text messaging program (POSSIP).

"Video lessons provided by our teacher Ms.Lybarger are very helpful. The way you submit and then grade your work is easy and understandable. The teacher is always available for questions and responds promptly. ZOOM meetings are always a nice break from studying alone and a nice way for students to keep in touch with each other while being out of school." - Parent POSSIP Comment, May 2020

"Mr. Morgan it's a very delicate teacher who loves his job and it's reflected every day thanks to Mr. Morgan for your hard work even on weekends." - Parent POSSIP Comment, May 2020

"The entire distance learning process has been great for us and has not had any issues. Mr. D has been attentive and responsive when (student) reaches out with any questions or concerns. I've heard stories from other parents across the country about their distance learning plans and how involved the parents are in the day to day learning and activities and I am so blessed that Rockwood is doing the online options and I don't have to be my child's teacher. Thank you!"  -Parent POSSIP Comment, May 2020
