About Us
Rock Chapel Entrance

Rock Chapel School, located in a fast-growing south DeKalb community near Lithonia, originated in 1825 as a one-room log meeting house. In 1940 the school was established on the present site. After many decades of facility upgrades and changes, Rock Chapel added a new wing with seventeen new classrooms in early 1999.

Our purpose is to provide a safe and nurturing learning community which inspires all learners to perform at high levels.  We unite school, home, and community to promote and ensure life-long learning.


  • We believe all student learning is the chief priority of the school.                
  • We believe our foremost responsibilities are to provide a quality education, a safe environment, and create the desire to become productive citizens.    
  • We believe it is essential that the school, parents,  and the community share the responsibility for achievement and discipline.                              
  • We believe all children are unique and have the potential to succeed.          
  • We believe challenging expectations increase individual student performance. 
  • We believe it is the responsibility of students, parents, teachers, administrators, support staff and the community to establish and maintain a learning environment that is free of discrimination and is respectful and kind to all.
  • We believe technology is essential in today's curriculum.
