Our Unique Community

 

Rock Point School attracts students who want to know, and share, what is good in themselves. Year after year, we have courageous adolescents and young adults who come to the school to learn, and share, and grow. Our biggest resource as a school is our human resource, our community of students and staff. The school is known for its unique educational program, but what truly makes Rock Point unique is the students. They become the stewards of Rock Point School. They support each other when things are hard. When the community, or an individual, faces hardships, our students learn how to facilitate conversations around these topics at the weekly community meeting. Students share their love and frustrations. They learn to speak up, to hear others’ thoughts, and to see that solutions are as available as problems. The entire community––staff and students––challenge themselves to understand and embody responsibility, honesty, generosity, and respect for others. Teachers and dorm staff are here to help students learn, grow, and succeed.
