We are East Rock, where learning leads us into the world!

Our magnet theme allows our students to become familiar with the cultural, geographical and political diversity that exists in the world today. Students will take charge of their educational experiences as they incorporate community-based problem solving to promote a better understanding of and respect for different people and cultures of the world. This is done through projectbased learning, case studies, field experiences and school-wide thematic and interdisciplinary units of study. Teachers are committed to creating learning experiences that integrate creative use of technology and promote student engagement. Students will leave East Rock understanding, respecting and appreciating different people and cultures of the world.


How to Know East Rock is Uniquely Right for Your Child:

○ Your child loves hands-on learning and sees the world as their classroom.

○ Your child sees learning as an adventure and is excited by projectbased learning opportunities.

○ Your child is fascinated by digital media and its potential to connect them with the world.

What our students are saying...

“East Rock’s teachers are encouraging and always give extra help because they want you to succeed. As a new student, you are easily accepted by other students and soon you’re an important part of the East Rock community.”
