District Welcome Message

Welcome to the Rocky Ford School District website. Our purpose is to provide our students with a quality public education so that they may become contributing citizens.

Rocky Ford is fifty miles east of Pueblo on Highway 50 on the plains of eastern Colorado. We are in the heart of the Arkansas Valley's rich agricultural country where melons, onions, and other vegetables are grown.  Farmer's markets are a familiar sight from July through October.

Our district consists of 825 students, 60 teachers, 55 classified, and 5 administrators.  We have three schools:   Washington Primary School serves preschool through 2nd grade; Jefferson Intermediate School is 3rd through 6th grade; and Rocky Ford Junior Senior High School houses 7th through 12th grade.

We are proud of our district!  Our staff is hard working, our students are learning, and our community gives us wonderful support. So please feel welcome to explore our website and learn more about Rocky Ford School District.  In addition, more information about the academic performance of the school district and the associated plans of action can be found on the website www.schoolview.org which contains a compilation of performance information for all school districts in Colorado. 

The mission of Rocky Ford School District R2 is to ensure individual success and learning of all students, within a safe environment.
