    A private school operated by the Methodist Church provided education for the children of the Rocky Hill community as early as 1867. A petition from area citizens resulted in the formation of a public school in 1883. Located on land owned by Henry Kruse, the school served the area until 1909, when a new building was erected at a site provided by Fritz Engelke. A third school building was located at this site on Henry Klatte's farm from the 1930s until 1957, when the Rocky Hill School was consolidated with the Brenham School System.
