  • i do not like rockwall, it is very boring.. the dress code is ridiculous. if they concentrated on teaching as much as they do clothes everybody would go to harvard. it would also be nice if they realized not everybodys dad is bill gates.

  • I agree that some of the teachers are lazy and unintelligent. I went to school there from 1980-1983 and as a result of what I considered favoritism on their part I ended up failing A year even though I was trying my best to succeed. After that my self esteem went downhill and I ended up quitting for a year and taking on A job. The following year we moved to irving where i decided to give it another shot and enrolled at Nimits high . I went from d's and f's at rockwall to straigh a's and b's at nimits for two solid years running.That should tell you something about the teachers at rockwall , at least back then. Maybe my parents just werent rich enought to warrent the attention I needed to succeed there.
