Denise Monzingo, Superintendent of Schools

Welcome to Rockdale ISD! Rockdale ISD is steeped in pride and tradition with blue and gold seen throughout this community. Rockdale serves just shy of 1600 students at four campuses. With our commitment to students, we expect our graduates to leave Rockdale High prepared for their next step whether college or career. This journey begins as early as Pre K as each year builds upon the previous. We take our job to educate each and every student in RISD very seriously knowing that while we all come from different backgrounds, together we comprise the family known as the Rockdale Tigers. We are glad you have become part of our Rockdale ISD family.
