Rockford Public Schools Athletic Philosophy

Rockford Public Schools Athletics provides a variety of athletic experiences to enhance the development of our students. We believe that athletics is a wonderful partner with the curricular lessons learned in the classroom. It is our belief that athletics teaches our students a number of lifelong values, including sportsmanship, teamwork, responsibility, respect, perseverance, persistence, and grit. We offer athletics at the elementary, middle, and high school levels because we believe in the positive benefits of participating in sports. RPS 205 makes every effort to offer our athletes the best coaching, facilities, equipment, and opportunities to help make their experiences positive and successful.
