RHS Guidance Office Welcomes You!

Welcome to the Guidance website.  As a guidance department our goal is to educate our students on their post-secondary options, provide emotional support, and create academic awareness.  RHS has two Counselors available to students as needed.

Host A Foreign Exchange Student

Rockford High School is continuing the tradition of welcoming Foreign Exchange students to our campus. This is not only a wonderful experience for the visiting student,  but hosting a foreign exchange student brings new cultural traditions to your family as well.  Students need a kind and welcoming place to experience everyday life as a high school student in the United States.  

As a Host Family, you will: 

  • Be kind and welcoming
  • Include the student in your daily family activities and routine
  • Promote an active social calendar
  • Talk about conflicts and issues as soon as they arise
  • Provide room and board including healthy meals during the week and on weekends
  • Ensure transportation to and from school
  • Check in with your student and the school to make sure the student is being successful
