Welcome to Northwest Suburban Integration School District

Cows, chickens, flowers, and buckthorn are all part of new activities at Rockford Middle School-Center for Environmental Studies. RMS-CES has many opportunities for agriculture experiences in the classroom, during exploratory, and in clubs outside of school hours.

RMS-CES offers an agriscience class for all students in grades 5-8. Keri Sidle teaches the middle school curriculum and also runs the local FFA chapter. In her classroom, students learn about United States and Minnesota agriculture including gardening, animal science, energy and agriculture, food science and safety, leadership, agriculture history, careers in agriculture, and soil and water science.

Agriscience covers a wide range of interests and opportunities for students. Sidle’s future plans for her classroom include a school and community garden, high tunnel, and greenhouse on the property across the street from the middle school building.
