About Us

Welcome to Rochester Primary School, home of the Explorers!
Rochester Primary School is located on the I-5 corridor just 20 minutes south of Olympia and less than 10 minutes north of Centralia. We have approximately 525 students enrolled in grades K-2 with an average class size of 24. Over 60 dedicated staff members work here to help our students be successful. Rochester Primary School strongly appreciates and encourages participation by parents and other community members. 
We look forward to working with you and your children. RPS has a talented staff that provides the best possible education to our students. The hard work and dedication of the staff at RPS is admirable. RPS staff goes above and beyond to assure that each and every student has their needs met. We have solid reading, writing, listening, speaking, math, science, social studies, arts and physical education programs. At RPS, we have fully implemented an intervention program in reading,and we are revamping our intervention in math. Teachers meet regularly in professional learning communities during ACT time each Friday to focus on using the most effective instructional strategies to support our students in their learning. Our staff holds high expectations for learning for all of our students at RPS, and we maintain the belief that all of our students are fully capable learners.
