• 16 Rocky River High School students earned National Merit Scholarship Program honors.

• Many students and staff earned exceptional awards and recognition throughout the school year.

• A renovated 1st floor at Beach School will serve district preschool students.

• The RRHS Spring Musical, Legally Blonde, was awarded Best Musical Tier 1 and Brandon Schumacker was awarded Best Actor at the 2017 Dazzle Awards.

• The National History Day Club continues to grow in participation, as students advance to State and National competitions.

• Students, parents, and residents enjoyed the District Art Show.

• Instrumental and vocal music performances across all grades made the school year fun and memorable.

• All activities, clubs, and sport teams represented the Rocky River City School District in the most positive way possible.
