Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rockland District Curriculum
Rockland High School offers several choices of courses in art, business, English, family and consumer science, world language, math, music, physical education, science, social studies, and technology education.

This program provides classes in different settings and in small groups, is much more individualized, and provides a nurturing environment for students. The program offers students a similar range in course options as at the traditional high school, as well as the chance to complete independent studies.

Keeping Informed: Recent Rockland Educational News
- Rockland Students Greeted With Artwork - When Rockland elementary students returned to school for the 2014 school year, they were greeted by new walls. These walls did not only contain a fresh coating of paint but also colorful murals created by the students themselves. The young artists also had a lot of say in the themes of the murals.
- Former Rockland Student Gives New Meaning to ‘Perfect Attendance’ - A former Rockland student, who graduated in 2011, toughed out the flu, skipped family get-togethers, and said ‘no’ to “Senior Skip Day” in order to achieve her dream of attending every single day of school from kindergarten through twelfth grade (that’s 2,340 total days). Although her peers thought she was a bit crazy, it had been her goal since she was four years old, when her mother had read her an article about a girl who had accomplished the feat. The Rockland grad didn’t just receive the typical “perfect attendance” ribbon, pin, or certificate for this feat—a local jeweler presented her with a diamond and sapphire ring.
- Rockland High Students Participate in Library Event - The Friends of the Rockland Memorial Library recently held an Open Poetry & 5 Minute Prose Event, where two Rockland High students read their poems aloud. Additionally, the reader at this event was a former English teacher at the school.

Chalk Talk: What Do Fourth Graders Learn in Math?
According to the Common Core Standards in Math, there are three critical areas for fourth grade math. The first involves operations: developing fluency with multi-digit multiplication and an understanding of division with multi-digit dividends. The second critical area focuses on fractions—specifically, their equivalence (including comparing fractions with different denominators and numerators using visual models) and the addition and subtraction of fractions with the same denominators. The increased instructional time dedicated to fractions also involves building fractions from unit fractions and comparing decimal and fractional notations for fractions with a denominator of 10 or 100 (i.e.: 0.87 is the same as 87/100). Lastly, geometry revolves around the understanding that shapes can be analyzed and classified according to properties such as parallel and perpendicular sides, angle measurements, and symmetry. Students should be able to use all four operations to solve problems, including multistep word problems involving whole numbers. They will build on their understanding of multiplication, recognizing the operation as a comparison between numbers.
