Before & After School Programs
Consistent with our core values of learning, self-discovery, and caring for others, High Rock offers a number of activities beyond the school day:

After School Care
Daily after school care is not available at High Rock.  You may contact the Needham Community Education Office or the High Rock/Pollard PTC to find out about local options.

After School Help with Academics
Students are strongly encouraged to stay after school to get extra help with challenging assignments.  Teachers are available in their classrooms until 2:40 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

High Rock After School Clubs
There are a number of after school clubs offered to High Rock students free of charge.  Clubs meet on a regular basis and are guided by a High Rock staff member.  These clubs are open to all students.

NCE Middle School Programs
The NCE Middle School Programs classes at High Rock and Pollard are taught by Needham Public Schools staff, community members, and other qualified professionals, and are designed to give students a chance to connect and learn beyond the classroom in a fun, engaging, and relaxed environment.  NCE Middle School programs also include two athletic teams: cross-country in the fall; and track & field in the spring.

Late Bus
During the NCE Middle School Programs a late bus will be available. The NCE Middle School Programs catalog and registration materials will include details about the late bus option.
