A partner in Cleveland’s “inner ring,” Rocky River holds a leading role in our greater educational community. Students enjoy the benefits of both a culturally rich urban area and its surrounding nature with Lake Erie to the north and the “Emerald Necklace” (Cleveland’s Metropark System) to the east. Rocky River High School (RRHS), a stalwart member of the civic and educational community, provides an intellectual landmark. With its student body of 850 and teaching faculty of sixty, RRHS is a comprehensive school that sends 90% of its graduates to college. Rocky River is home to 20,000 residents who show pride in their school system by providing consistent support.
Recognized as an exemplary performing high school, Rocky River High School earned a 2012 National Blue Ribbon Award. The Ohio Department of Education has designated Rocky River City Schools as “Excellent with Distinction” for twelve consecutive years based on its comprehensive annual report card. Students’ performances exceed the state and the national averages on Advanced Placement examinations (AP), Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT), and the ACT and SAT.Cleveland Magazinerates Cleveland’s suburbs and their schools each year, and for sixteen years has rated RRHS in the top ten in the region and #2 this past year.
