Welcome to the High Rock School

Dear High Rock Community,

Welcome to the High Rock School website.

Everyone at High Rock is excited about working with the students
and families as they begin their journey through the middle school experience in Needham.  At High Rock our work focuses on three
key school values: learning, self-discovery and caring for others.  Throughout the year teachers, coursework, activities and
experiences will provide moments when students will examine, challenge and develop in these three realms.

I hope this website provides you with information about the
learning experience, an understanding of school expectations
and routines, and communications that are relative to the 
school community at High Rock.

If you ever have questions about anything, the staff is here to 
help you.  We are so happy that you are here with us.  Best
wishes for a successful school year.
