We Are River.
Located less than 10 miles from downtown Cleveland, our city quaintly sits on the shores of Lake Erie, nestled between the greens of the Cleveland Metroparks and the blues of the river that shares our name. With tall, towering trees and picturesque views at every turn, our landscape perfectly symbolizes the opportunities for growth our schools provide to students.
The Rocky River City School District boasts FIVE National Blue-Ribbon Awards and is consistently rated as one of the top districts in Ohio and among Cleveland Magazine’s prestigious Top-10 list of Cleveland-area schools.
Utilizing technology to help create a learning environment that nurtures student growth, our faculty, staff and administrators continue to find inventive and innovative ways to lead our students toward a 21st century education. When our students graduate, they are prepared to be the leaders and trailblazers of tomorrow.
Not only are our schools recognized for academic excellence, but students also find success in each of our 90-plus activities and athletics. Our student artists hone their talents in the visual arts and we foster those in the performing arts, with award-winning music, theater and dance programs.
Student athletes compete at championship-levels in sports, including cross country, football, golf, soccer, volleyball, basketball, hockey, gymnastics, swimming, track and field, wrestling, baseball, lacrosse, softball and tennis.
With arts, athletics and our numerous other extra-curricular activities, such as, Academic Challenge, broadcasting, Destination Imagination, e-sports, Key Club, Robotics, sailing, Science Olympiad and student council, there truly is something for everyone.
Like the ancient trees of our landscape, we are rooted in tradition, and grow to meet the demands of an ever-changing world. Where the waters Rocky River blend with Lake Erie, we provide a rich educational experience and a myriad of opportunities, giving our community something to be proud of.
We are Caring. We Are Exceptional. We Are Competitive.
At the Rocky River City School District, we hold our heads high and say loudly…
We Are River.
