I would like to welcome you to Rockvale Middle School! Academic growth for our students is our first task, but preparing them to contribute to our community is a close second. You can’t separate the development of the "whole child" from the child’s academic development; the two must work in concert and both benefit from the other. We invite the community to be a part of our mission to add to the growth of our students. Together we can make this a rewarding experience for the students at Rockvale Middle!

  Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you
will never cease to grow.

April Sneed, Assistant Principal

It is with great honor and pleasure to have the opportunity to serve the
Rockvale Middle School community as your new assistant principal. I have
worked in Rutherford County Schools since 2009 as a math teacher at both the
middle and high school level, and am thrilled to join the leadership team at Rockvale.
I hope to build relationships with students, teachers, and parents in order to create
an environment that promotes learning. My aspiration is to create a culture that
allows students to develop and progress in such a way as to be academically ready
for high school. I look forward to a successful year! Go Ravens!
