Academics

​​​​We in the Rockford Public Schools are privileged to provide a sound system of education so each student can reach his/her fullest potential.

We offer a rich and varied curriculum that provides a foundation for effective, targeted instruction. This helps ensure that all students engage in learning opportunities that access all learning standards, every year.

RPS 205 Curriculum is:

  1. Deep: Mastery of essential skills is emphasized at each level, so students build the skills and confidence to tackle more advanced concepts.
  2. Broad: Instruction cross content areas – for example, science and social studies curriculum incorporates reading, math, and writing skills, and vice versa.
  3. Relevant: Classroom lessons are reinforced through hands-on activities and real-world experiences.
  4. Active: Students learn by exploration, using creativity, critical thinking, and analysis to discover answers to problems, and practice collaboration and effective communication.
