Roton Middle SchoolServing grade levels six through eight, Roton Middle School opened in September, 1966. The current student population of 540 ranks the school as the smallest of the four middle schools in Norwalk. Taking advantage of the school's size, the faculty strives to foster a climate where learning takes place in an atmosphere of nurturing concern and close community. To further this end, Roton's house teaching structure focuses on individual students and facilitates communication among teachers and parents. 

The staff of Roton Middle School includes: 3 administrators, full-time teachers, part-time teachers and approximately 20 support personnel. All faculty members hold bachelor's degrees, while 84% hold a master's degree or above. All members of the faculty and administration hold Connecticut Certification in their areas of current responsibility. 

Roton was awarded a ten-year accreditation by the New England Association of Schools & Colleges for excellence in education. Currently, Roton is the only middle school in Norwalk to have sought this accreditation and to have met this demanding standard. Roton's high academic standards are enriched by scholastically challenging programs such as Gifted and Talented and G/T Language Arts. 

Roton's international outlook is rooted in a number of foreign language course offerings, and Roton has a very successful Japanese program. Three years of study culminates in a ten day trip to Japan where students experience the culture and language first hand. Also, Roton is one of two middle schools in Norwalk to incorporate a bilingual program. The Roton curriculum weaves a varied fabric from the cultures of many countries through language and social studies. 

The importance of Human Relations is evidenced by activities such as Roton's Community Service Club, Peer Mediation, Student Council, and the Mentor Program. Roton's extensive music program includes an award-winning band, orchestra, and women's and men's chorus. The Related Arts program allows students exposure to technology, nutrition and art. Roton takes pride in its many after-school activities, including sports and the RAMs program for academic and social enrichment. 

Roton Middle School is a caring place where the school community develops the students' highest potential through high academic expectation, respect, responsibility, and the celebration of diversity. Roton has proven to be successful in preparing its students for life beyond its walls. We, the staff of Roton Middle School, are proud of our contribution to the education of Norwalk's youth.
