Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver,

This first in the series of "friendship adventures for girls" from Purple Moon introduces the player to Rockett Movado. Rockett has just moved to Whistling Pines and today is her first day of eighth grade at her new school. The player follows Rockett through her day, taking pictures of the people she meets, and making decisions about how she should act (or react) to a variety of situations. For example, she must decide how she feels about entering the school alone, or about meeting a strange girl by the name of Mavis, who is clearly not a part of "the cool crowd." There are always three descriptions of Rockett's possible attitudes to choose among -- a happy, confident or outgoing Rockett, a shy or depressed Rockett, and a third choice that is somewhere in the middle whether it's annoyed, angry, or just unsure. In addition to listening and responding to the story, you can explore the contents of Rockett's backpack (which contains a camera and photo album, a journal she's writing to the best friend she left behind, an art sketchbook, and a video answering machine) or search through the lockers of teachers and students who appear in the story. (From Through The Glass Wall)

The .toast file, 1st DL is a hybrid Mac/PC disc image. The .iso contains only the Mac partition but is probably better supported under emulation, i.e. mounting in SheepShaver.

The ISO file, 2nd DL is a workaround from Emaculation member Elyus offering a workaround for SheepShaver on macOS. Mount ISO with http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/virtual-dvd-romcd-utility

Seems to require the physical CD to be mounted for the game to run.

Rockett (RNS) seems to run with SheepShaver, given the .toast was burned to CD and the CD is "seen" by SheepShaver. SheepShaver 2.4 on OSX 10.8 or lower should work, methinks, only tried 10.6.
SheepShaver on Windows works fine, as the CD support there was fixed quite some time ago.
As said before, there seems to be no way around a physical CD.
Mounting the .toast image with Toast Titanium 5.0.1 won´t work. Sad

Rockett's New School seems to work fine on my PowerBook G4 (15-inch Aluminum, Early 2005) running Mac OS X 10.4.11 with Classic Environment installed, and I found one caveat: There are some minor graphical glitches, but other than that, no other issues found!
