Rockland School District No. 382 consists of grades K-12 with an enrollment of approximatley 160 students. The first Rockland School Building was a log house built by volunteer labor in 1883. This building served as a meeting place for the community, as well as a social center where dances and celebrations were held--not unlike the current building. Several schoolhouses have served the district since that time with the latest being built in 1994.
The District is situated in a valley surrounded by rolling hills and mountains. It is a quiet, rural community which centers most of its activities around the school. In cooperation with the family and community, the District is dedicated to educating the whole child with special emphasis placed on dignity and self worth. We stress acceptance of differences, we emphasize cooperation with concern for others, and we prize the unique worth of each individual. Our district is committed to providing an atmosphere that is safe, informal and friendly, a professional staff that is constantly learning and growing, and an environment where students work together and respect one another.
