In February of each year, current 8th grade students begin the process of registering for their first-year classes at Rouse. While this can be exciting, and maybe even a little stressful, do not fear… We are here to help!
We've compiled a library of short videos that may help answer some of your questions regarding not only band, but also High School in general.
