My kids went to Viera after moving from New York. I felt there were so many kids that they got lost in the shuffle. There were many complaints about the teaching skills at Viera. They are fairly new and are sure to improve I hope. My daughter now goes to Rockledge since we are out of the Viera School district. I have not heard a negative word about the teaching skills of a single teacher at Rockledge yet. Their Cambridge program is impressive and the kids that I had interviewed before sending my own daughter there were very positive. Rockledge is 982 out of the top 1900 schools NATIONWIDE. I guess as with any school a person may like or dislike attributes of the school for many reasons when they attended the school as a youth. Schools change and from what I hear and see Rockledge is much better with many years of dedication from its staff. I hope this will help. Rockledge Rocks!!
I went to Rockledge High School and it's not the best...I agree with one of the other replies; sports are favored over education. It wasn't the worst school I could have went to, but we moved around alot and mel high was much better. I have also heard great things about viera high. I felt behind when I went to college...there were just some things that I didn't learn at Rockledge high that I should have.
Questions like your are really fun for me! We live work and play in Rockledge, and my husband, a graduate of Roickledge High School, is also the police chief in Rockledge. I would really enjoy talking with you about this more! Good luck and take care.
