About RMSST

Our motto at RMSST is Challenge, Opportunity, Distinction.  Our specialized curriculumprovides challenging courses in the STEM pathways.  Scientific Research connects the classroom with real-world problems and solutions.  Scientific Internships extend the classroom to real-world experiences.  Specialized Electives like Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology, Organic Chemistry, Astronomy, Forensic Science, Engineering Design, History of Math and Etymology extend our classroom challenge even further. 

Our Students have the opportunity to travel both nationally and internationally. Students have repeatedly placed at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair and traveled to present their research in France, Japan and Greece.  The Rockdale Magnet Math Team has been overall State Champions three times (in 2004, 2005, and 2013) and at least one student from RMSST has been on the Georgia State Math Competition team (ARML) since 2003.  Other research conferences and competitions in our Research Exchange Program include the Georgia Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (GJSHS), Intel Science Talent Search, Mandelbrot Contest, NCSSSMST Student Research Symposium, Envirothon Competition, and the Young Georgia Authors Competition.

RMSST students have the distinction of being recognized nationally by admissions counselors.  The RMSST curriculum prepares students to be successful at top-tier universities and sets our students apart during the college application process.  We offer individualized advised with college and career planning, including developing a 5-year plan for each student to match students’ interests to colleges, completing the college application process and applying for financial aid and scholarships.  Our students have the unique distinction of meeting with admissions officers and attending college application workshops at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
