During the first week of school at Dorothy S. Pullen Elementary School, Hurricane Harvey was wreaking havoc in other parts of our state. Pullen students were aware that while they were greeting their friends, meeting their new teachers and dropping off brand new school supplies in their classrooms, other students in Texas would be spending what should be their first day of school in a shelter.
The Rockwall High School Chamber Orchestra was recently honored as a Commended Winner in the 2017 Mark of Excellence/National Orchestra Honors Project.

Rockwall ISD and Campuses Achieve Highest Accountability Rating
Rockwall Independent School District and all 19 of its campuses have achieved the state’s highest rating for academic achievement. The district and all campuses were officially rated “Met Standard” according to the Texas Education Agency.
“I am so proud of the excellence that has been achieved by our students and teachers. It takes everyone in our organization from bus driver to campus leadership to central office, in partnership with parents, to achieve such high student performance. It is that spirit of partnership in educating all children that makes Rockwall ISD an exceptional school district,” said Superintendent Dr. John “JJ” Villarreal.
