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.  Through 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.
