My daughter has attended Rose Lane since Kinder, she is now in the second grade. We feel lucky to have her here. Although there are allot kids enrolled the staff seems to manage well. All of her teachers to this point have been great! Also, parents seem to be very engaged.

I think that teachers should be more involved in students curriculum making sure they do their homework. I also think it should more challenging, the homework is too easy and the reading requirements. I have several kids in this school and I've seen different teachers how they are involved and I've seen quite few that they don't care that much. An example: my son was writing and I usually make him write straight on paper, so one day I let him do his writing without me telling him or making him write straight, so he finished and of course he writes chicken sticks can't understand it and he turns in his homework and I would think that the teacher would give him a low score... But not so! She writes excellent! I'm thinking, What on earth is she thinking? This is just one kid I can tell another one but it wold be endless. I care about childrens education and since they spend majority time in school, I believe that schools should be more time academically challenging.

Lunchtime is a disaster: Kids are rushed, don't get adequate time to eat or to use the bathroom in the cafeteria. No one supervises kids in the cafeteria bathroom who are running around, climbing the stalls and running all the water to make spit balls. Then, on the playground, again, no one supervises the bathrooms. Kids have accidents (Kindergartners) regularly because they are scared to use the one outside with running and screaming kids and the teachers REFUSE to let them use the one in the classroom during lunch because it disturbs them while they are eating. And, teacher really have no clue what happens at lunch because unlike at many schools where teachers are with kids at lunch, here, just a bunch of low-paid aids are with the kids. They don't know the kids' names, much less what their needs are. It is really a disaster.

Amazing school! My son has improved so much by going! He had a hard time with his speech and behavioral issues; but the staff worked one on one to help with both issues. His teacher actually responds to my emails within a couple of hours and helps work out any issues; daily updates. As a worry wart I don't have to worry about my son in school. One less thing for me!

Rose Lane is truly an amazing school! We have two children who attend and live outside of the district. The quality and caliber of teachers and staff is remarkable. The school is very safe for children as they practice both lockdown and fire drills on a regular basis. This school is truly the gem of North-central Phoenix and I feel blessed to have our family as part of this incredible community!!!

My kids have been above grade level in all subjects during their entire career at Rose Lane. We have a very high parent involvement rate which is amazing. I love our school.

Being a teacher at Rose Lane, I am slightly biased. However, I spent the summer furthering my education through distance learning classes with other teachers from around the state and can honestly say some of the best teachers are in our district. I was shocked by how 'ahead of the curve' the Madison teachers were in comparison to teachers from other districts. The high expectations for teachers in the Madison School District truly has created highly qualified teachers. I've never been more proud of being a member of this team.

My daughter is in Kinder and she hated her last school, as soon as she met her teacher at Madison Rose, she was all smiles and she couldn't wait to start school! I was shocked and she's so much happier!

I have had children in this school, off and on for over 9 years. I have always been happy with the communication and committment level of the teachers. The administration has changed much over the last couple of years, to a group that is much more focused on student achievement and the importance of the community and parent involvment to attain that status. All very positive trends to an already wonderful school. If you are considering a variance to Rose Lane, I would definately recommend you pursue it--you won't be sorry.

My daughter went to kindergarten at this school. We were very happy with her teacher, who was very dedicated to her students and was a wonderful first teacher! Parents were involved in many of the student activites which is a good thing. Class size is average but in kindergarten there is often an aide or parent helper which is very necessary. Overall, my daughters first school experience was very good....we were pleasantly surprised.....one last thing is that the kindergarteners have their own playground, which I appreciated very much.

so far this school seems to be working out very well for my 1st grader, she got help on her first day finding her home room since i was unable to take her and the teacher called me to let me know what was going on. the girls at the fromt office are also very helpful and nice. i think this will turn out to be a great learning experience for my child.

The Madison School District is the best in Phoenix, in my opinion. Rose Lane School has committed teachers and good student support.There is computer trainning starting in kindergarten and it is obvious that this district has money and puts it into thier schools for the students.

School is fairly big sized (about 800 plus students?) so not very personalized. My child's teacher (2nd grade) was a young teacher who was very nice, caring, and personable. Unfortunately, I believe the principal was not all that involved with students, probably due to being overly concerned with administrative duties and pending retirement. New principal Ms. Jones seems to be a lot more caring and more 'with it.' Other staff appear to be nice, esp. Janine (name?), at the reception desk, as well as Nurse Marney. Problems abound w/bullies, esp. on bus -buses were also struggling retaining drivers. Otherwise, it's a good school and I'd recommend it. Definitely need more programs for lower-income families, not everyone can afford $115 for chess -but all should have some access to extracurricular activities (sound like something PFC should worry about!)

My son has attended rose lane on a variance for the past 5 years (k thru 4th). We love this school. I am sad he has to leave as this school only goes up to grade 4. It is a down to earth school with a homey feel. I love the cutsey neighborhood and all the staff is great. There are several fun events throughout the year which we always look forward to. The school has a fantastic math program in which my son has accelerated through to advanced 5th grade and he loves it. They have rotating days with music, art, and p.e. They have an after school program which is pretty decent although a little pricey. Rose lane has late start time of 8:45. The end time is 3:30. Wednesdays they get out at 2, which is kindof annoying for working moms but it is for teacher collaboration.

The teachers at this school work hard to meet the needs of all students. They continually modify instruction, so that all children are learning at their own academic level. They challenge students beyond the state standards and have high expectations for every learner. Currently, I am satisfied with the amount of time provided for music, art, P.E. and library. I wish there was a technology teacher to provide lessons on using computers. Parents are moderately involved. You often see the same parents involved in everything.

Madison Rose Lane is one of the best organized public schools I have experienced. Their communication with parents is excellent and their parent involvement is also excellent. Both of my children attended this school. The music program is well run and the art program is also excellent. My children received an excellent education and had fine teachers at this school.

Madison Rose Lane school is a very proactive school. They focus heavly on attendance and high acheivement and set goals for their students and work extremely hard to attain those goals. The staff is great and encourages parent involvement - which is critical for a child to succeed. The lines of communication are completely open between parents and staff. My children love their school and are learning so much so fast and it is very exciting to see. The Parent Faculty Club is very active and does everything it can to help support the children at Madison Rose Lane. Arizona has teh worst educatoin record of the country, but Madison School District is the best in the state.. why wouldn't you want the best for your children?

Teacher collaboration is awesome. The school communicates well with the parents through daily folder and homework lists. Lots of areas for parents to be involved in the daily education or just special events. My son really seams to bond with his teacher. The teachers move the children around the classroom as they see neccessary so they can work more closely with those students that need it. The curriculum is always being tweaked for better performance according to the childrens needs. I like seeing that teachers from different grade levels collaborate to get the advise and guidance of their peers and to see how they can improve the education for the students this year based on how they are progressing from the previous.
