Mission Statement

Community
The ROCORI (ROckville, COld Spring, RIchmond) School District has a tradition of excellence in its academic and activity programs. ROCORI is a highly regarded public school system with sites in each of the communities.  The school district of approximately 127 square miles is located about 15 miles southwest of St. Cloud MN, on State Highway 23 with excellent access to the networks of Interstate 94.  The three community elementary schools along with three parochial schools provide a strong academic base for the student-centered middle and senior high settings.  ROCORI features strong academic programs with wide-ranging activity opportunities at all levels.

School
ROCORI Senior High School, which opened in its new building in 1969, was established in 1967.  It is the sole high school that serves over 2100 students in District 750.  In 2017-2018 there are more than 800 students enrolled in grades 9-12. In the many years of existence, RHS has established a reputation as a school that holds all students to high standards

Curriculum & Scheduling
A comprehensive curriculum of over 270 courses is available to students.  It includes, College in the High School Courses (CITHS), Honors, traditional, remedial and special education courses. CITHS is designed to give 11th & 12th grade students an opportunity to participate in college level courses while still in high school.  The program provides the means for students to earn college credit without having to leave the high school setting.  We also offer an AP Spanish course.

ROCORI is under a modified block schedule, which consists of five 70 minute blocks per day. This schedule utilizes a trimester system, consisting of six terms.  Students are scheduled for 7.50 credits per year of which they must pass a total 28 credits of 30 possible to graduate.

Credits and Grades
One credit is equivalent to one academic year of study, or two trimesters (4 terms) of passing coursework.  Successful completion of one trimester (2 terms) is equivalent to .50 credits, and completion of one term is equal to .25 credits.  GPA and class rank are based on a 4.0 numerical equivalent of an “A”.  College in the High School courses are the only courses graded on a weighted 4.0 scale.  (A= 5.0, A- = 4.57 etc.) GPA and class rank are computed after each trimester.  Grades assigned that do not affect GPA include:  (NC) No Credit (W) Withdrawal, (P) Pass, (I) Incomplete.
