Principal's Message


Rocky River High School is an exemplary educational organization dedicated to academic achievement and the promotion of excellence while motivating students to achieve their goals. Each student is valued as an individual and the staff works diligently to ensure a positive educational experience is had by all. Emphasis is placed on rigorous academic expectations, joining and participating in extracurricular activities, and seeking to make the school culture an enjoyable place to learn.


The ideals listed above are the primary reason that Rocky River High School has received many prestigious accolades, which include, being named a 2012 National Blue Ribbon school, earning the Ohio Department of Education’s highest ranking for thirteen consecutive years, being rated as one of the top ten high schools in the city by Cleveland Magazine for the past twenty years, and making the 2017 US News & World Report’s list of best high schools.


Many factors contribute to a successful school, one of which is community and parent involvement. We encourage feedback from all stakeholders with the intention of bettering our learning environment. Please feel free to contact me at any time by phone (440-356-6801), or email (
