All students are required to take five core courses: language arts, math, science, social studies which includes world history/geography for sixth grade, civics for seventh grade, and U.S. history for eighth grade, and foreign language. Variations of courses include advanced, gifted, honors and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages).

Keeping Informed: Recent Westchester Educational News
- Miami-Dade Schools Reach Out to Community - Miami-Dade Schools are committed to exposing students to STEM opportunities and subjects in order to best prepare them for tomorrow’s jobs. In the face of budget cuts, the district emphasizes the importance of partnering with community residents and businesses in order to be able to fund hands-on learning materials for students. One example was Chevron’s Fuel Your School imitative, which contributed $500,000 to over 700 classroom projects in more than 190 schools, including Rockway Middle School.

They were then encouraged to submit their photos to the Mercantil Commercebank’s ZoolensSM Photography Project—a contest held to raise awareness of wildlife among Miami-Dade middle school students. In the contest’s fifth year, 300 entries were submitted and judged on composition, artistic merit, technical ability, and title.
- Former Rockway Middle School Quadruplets Graduate - The Tablada quadruplets—all girls—have had many of their milestones followed by the Miami Herald, including their graduation from Miami-Dade County’s Southwest High.

Chalk Talk: Celebrating Historical Figures and Commemorative Months
Throughout the school year, schools may celebrate certain famous figures or focus on a larger them like Black History Month or Women's History Month. These offer students great opportunities for personal exploration of these themes. For example, after children read the famous "I Have a Dream" speech, they can compose their own such speeches on what their dreams are to improve a world that has a great deal of issues. They may focus on world peace, including ending specific items such as war and terrorism. Racism still persists today in many pockets of the world and for many groups of people, so this may be a focus. Students' dreams may be centered on smaller scales; for example, they may wish to end bullying in their school, with everybody respecting one another. This is a great way to help the legacy of the person or subject studied to live on.
