Environmental Field Trip
landfill

Mr. Shurter and AP Environmental Science students had a great time learning the operations of a modern landfill that uses an LFGTE system (Landfill Gas To Energy) where landfill gas comprised of primarily methane is captured and burned in generators to create electricity on site. DTE Energy provides the engines & generators to power over 3000 homes in the local area. Smiths Creek landfill was also the first landfill in the country to use a Septage Bioreactor, where septage is injected into the landfill to increase the decomposition of organic matter and natural gas production. Thanks Smiths Creek Landfill and DTE Energy for your environmental stewardship and welcoming atmosphere!

Semester 1 Exams

As we begin the second quarter of the 2021/2022 school year, we wanted to take this opportunity to provide you with information regarding final exams for semester 1.

Model UN
Model UN

On Saturday, November 13th, Rochester High School's Model United Nations Club attended the Southeast Michigan Model United Nations Association's (SEMMUNA) Fall Conference at Bloomfield Hills High School, accompanied by Ms. Frisby and Ms. Kareem. Rochester High School students were among the roughly 800 delegates from 37 schools participating in this year’s conference.

During opening ceremonies, students heard keynote speeches from State Congresswoman Mari Manoogian and U.S. Representative Andy Levin of Michigan’s 9th congressional district about diplomatic service and the importance of global perspectives in our modern world. 

Rochester students were split into various committees where they devised diplomatic resolutions for specific global issues, including combating misinformation and hate speech, preparing for global pandemic responses, and reducing ocean waste.

Students learned more about the complex issues facing our world today from multiple perspectives, debating with other delegates and collaborating to write resolutions. The global focus of Model United Nations, coupled with engagement in real-world research, speaking, writing, and negotiating skills, makes opportunities like the SEMMUNA Conference an ideal place for RHS students to gain valuable experiences while having fun!
