This school deserves a much higher rating! I considered sending my son to a private school, but am so happy I decided to try Rosewood. The education rivals that of the best schools. His teacher is warm, supportive, inclusive, available, and a wonderful educator. The principal, Mrs. Crowder, is phenomenal. She knows the name of every student, and is always available to them (and to the parents). I know few people more dedicated to their jobs, and she works incredibly hard for the betterment of the school and its students. Mrs. Crowder even goes to all the same trainings she requires of her teachers. For a public school, Rosewood has an impressive array of enrichments, including PE, art, music, dance, computer lab, and outdoor garden. The extra-curricular activities are likewise broad, from sports to robotics to drama/school musical. This is a truly diverse school, both racially and socio-economically, which for us was a real plus. My son loves going school, which is the best test of all.

We have finished two years at Rosewood and absolutely love the school. The Principal and Teachers are amazing, it s a great environment with a lot of programs for the kids. It all starts with Prinicipal Crowder, who is spectacular. She is always available to the kids and to parents for any issue. We have met with her several times and always been given terrific advice, we have really come to depend on her. At the volunteer cleanup events, she arrives first, leaves last and works harder than anyone else. We have had terrific teachers as well, every teacher we have had was caring but demanding and our son has loved each teacher he has had. The school has a great atmosphere and the entire focus on learning and self-improvement. We looked at every public and private school in the area and chose Rosewood. We are so glad we did.

I am amazed at how much my child has learned from the beginning of the school year. The Kindergarten teachers are both terrific teachers. They are respected and adored very much by their students. Upon entering the school there is a very friendly, safe and warm feeling one senses. The office staff are always very cheerful and helpful. The students at Rosewood even look happy when you pass them in the hallways. Mrs. Crowder, the principal, truly cares about each of her students and goes above and beyond her duties for her students. Mrs. Crowder is amazing, she greets every student who arrives in the carpool line with a smile which makes kids feel welcomed and ready to start their day. There is an amazing music program with a truly fabulous teacher. All the students, in the school, participated in 2 music shows during the year which were awesome. We also have a beautiful garden the students have enjoyed creating and wonderful parent volunteers assisting them. My child is lucky to have this wonderful school in our neighborhood.

My daughter is just finishing kindergarten here and we've had an amazing year, she absolutely loves her school. Yes maybe I'm guilty of looking at the API scores in the past, but I realized through the year that this number does not define my school. Our teachers have implemented the Common Core Standards of teaching instead of teaching our kids how to do well on a test. This school offers balance, my kindergartener is reading and writing sentences, knew her 1st grade sight words by the middle of the year, and we've got a morning mile club, dance classes, P.E., Art classes, plays and more. We've have made amazing friends in the year we've been here. If your looking for a school with down to earth parents, teachers, and principal with a can do attitude then this is the place for you. The Principal and Teachers are approachable and easy to talk to. Mrs. Crowder knows every child's name, and is a permanent fixture at the gate every single morning during drop off. The office staff is full of sweet heart too! This school is a hidden gem. Parent involvement is also the key to a child's success and through the Friends of Rosewood committee there are always ways to get involved.

As we are about to finish up our first year at Rosewood, I felt it was time to write my review. I've been so happy with our experience at this school. We toured many other schools in and out of the neighborhood before sticking with our home school Rosewood. In the end I was most comfortable and excited about Rosewood after touring it. After nearly a year there with 2 children enrolled, I'm thrilled we made the decision to go. Being able to walk our children to school everyday is so cool and such a plus. I can't say enough about our Principle Mrs. Crowder. She knows all the kids by name and basically lives at that school! She is dedicated, caring and very accessible. With all the budget cuts in LASUD I was thrilled this year when my kids had PE, Art class, Music class and a reading buddy program. There is also a twice a year music performance that was wonderful to see. There was even a school musical! Throughout the year there have also been many fun events to attend such as Fall Festival and Outdoor Movie Night. But THE MOST IMPORTANT thing to me is the fact that my kids LOVE going to school in the morning. They never want to miss a day. That has said it all to me.

Ok... If you are here and reading reviews you are looking at schools for your little one(s). This is a big deal. Rosewood is THE BEST SCHOOL!!! I'm a single mom and I am incredibly protective of my girls and where they spend their time and who influences them. Rosewood has been one of the best things to every happen to them. The school is small enough for kids not to get lost in the flow. The staff is lead by a very open and student focused Principal. I have watched the campus change since Mrs Chowder became the principal and the spirit of the school has really come together in a great way. Be respectful, Be responsible and make good choice... the words of the Huskey's. And the teachers are balanced between meeting state standards, but also seeing the children and their real world needs when it come to learning. Both my daughters formed their foundations at this school and I could not be prouder of them. Go to an open house to get a feel for the school yourself. As a friend, as a mom, as a parent... I want to sincerely tell you, this is a school you can feel good about. Your children will thrive, learn, have fun and make great memories at Rosewood. This is a 10+ school. Go Huskey's

Rosewood Avenue Elementary values each and every one of its students and families. It is a safe, caring and nurturing environment that focuses on the educational needs of all our students. Rosewood's highly qualified teachers, along with its support staff, are constantly in communication to ensure that these needs are met or exceeded. It is both an honor and pleasure to be part of Rosewood's phenomenal team. We are also all very excited for the launch of our new school's website. Go Huskies!

Could not say more about this wonderful elementary school. When I first meet Principal Crowder three summers ago for a tour, I knew this was the campus for me and my three children. I am 100% impressed with her outstanding leadership of the school, and the three teachers that my children have had so far would give any private school teacher a serious run for the money. Thank you to all of the teachers, staff, and leadership of Rosewood for earning and continuing to amass my respect and devotion! You are making wonderful people out my little huskies and I will always be grateful to you.

It is so difficult to feel that your child is safe at school with so much that goes on at other school. I know that my daughter is safe and that is why I take the drive. In addition, every year, she loves her teachers. The teachers go beyond the requirements to teach and care for their students. I simply love this school.- Katelyn's mom

This is every parents dream elementary school. Every adult from the office to the amazing Mrs. Tina in the cafeteria to the unbelievably amazing Mrs. Crowder are incomparable. They are all so involved and invested in each child its amazing to see, it really shows on the children. The children are challenged and encourage to be the best of themselves every day. Mrs. Crowder is the best elementary school principal I've ever seen, she greets and knows EVERY SINGLE STUDENT'S NAME! And is so supportive of every parent/families needs and situations, she goes above and beyond for every student; you can see her love and dedication to all her Huskies and the school. The teachers are phenomenal, Mrs. Aochi the Kindergarten teacher is absolutely the best! I am so thankful my son is a Husky!

I Love Rosewood! Its such a great school. The teachers are all very nice and the principal is the best. They all seem to know my daughter by name. I don't remember the principal at my elementary knowing! It just seems so personal and that the faculty actually cares. Another thing I like is that the school goes up to 6th grade. And the after-school program - STAR. I can't wait until my 4 year old starts in a few years! The only thing I would like to see is if a grassy field was added in the corner lot, right now all they have is concrete. Other than that I would definitely recommend this school!

It is true that the scores at Rosewood went down last year - often this is the case when a new principal comes to a school. Mrs. Crowder, however, is doing an amazing job at the school - the scores don't tell the whole story.

This year at Rosewood has been AMAZING so far! Our 4th grader is engaged and challenged and loves his teacher. Our Kindergartener LOVES school. He came into school not knowing his letters and now is beginning to read!!! We owe it all to his wonderful teacher. She is nurturing and makes learning fun and exciting. They have gone on field trips, they bring home tons of art work and sing songs. We have vocal music and dance and PE. My older son is participating in the orchestra and playing the trombone. I can't say enough about how happy we are to be a part of this school. If you are looking for a Kindergarten (or any grade for that matter) don't sleep on this one, Check out Rosewood Ave. Elementary School!

So happy my grandsons attend this school. They love Rosewood. The teachers keep them learning and happy. The neighborhood is lucky to have a wonderful public elementary school in their community. This school is diversely populated with wonderful families. My youngest grandson is in Kindergarten and just loves his school. His teacher is fantastic. He toured so many preschools and just wasn't interested in going, we weren't sure how he would feel about Kindergarten. Since the first day, he is eager to go to school in the mornings and proudly shows off the art and school work he has done. His teacher is doing something right!

The thing that used to make this school so special was that it was a champion of special education. It didn't just help the children with special needs, but enriched the entire student body and added to the diverse student body. Unfortunately under the new principal this has all been abandoned in favor of simply pushing for better test scores. I am so sad about this but will most likely be transferring my children out of this school as soon as possible.

Rosewood Ave school has a caring, nurturing enviornment very condusive to learning. There is a lot of assistance for those in need and the open door policy of the Principal makes one feel that they are heard and their child is important to her. Resources is most outstanding in the way of trying, case by case, to help each student in their own individual way. It is personalized to the child. The school is supportive of the needs of its students, does all it can to provide all the elements for a well-rounded education. This school is safe, each child is accounted for all times of the day and the teachers our sons have are very involved, go out of their way to help in any way they can to make things better for their students as has been the case at this school. Unlike any other we have tried.

This school is in need of new leadership! As it appears to me, the current principal seems to care first and foremost about her own self-interest and career objectives, not what's best for the education of ALL the children or the careers of the other educators at the school. This school is lucky that it still has some parents willing to get involved and support activities for the children. This school was okay. Hopefully, one day it will be great, but today it is falling below mediocrity for the standards I expect.

Rosewood is a wonderful public school full of diversity with high expectations and aspirations for all children. Our API is 844 we compete with the best private/charter schools in West Hollywood.

My son just finished Kindergarten at Rosewood, his teacher was Mrs. Aiochi. We had a terrific experience there. We are sad to hear that Aiochi will be moving to 5th graders next year, and the Prinipal is retiring as well. We hope the budget cuts don't take away from the great eduaction going on there. The afterschool program Star is a good program as well.

I was fortunate enough to find this school last year as I searched out good schools for my son who was entering Kindergarten. I enrolled my son, not knowing too much about the school, just what I could find at sites like this. Well, I as so glad I found this school. It is has a diverse population, good test schools, supportive parents, and dedicated staff. I am always recommending Rosewood to others.

We love Rosewood Elementary! We tried out a new 'charter' school and regret that decision whole heartedly. Should have stuck with Rosewood! The school population is so well rounded... it is a melting pot of wonderful kids and families. Our son is so happy here and looks forward to school every day! The teachers are great and the principal is dedicated. The kids have art, drama, dance, P.E.! We consider ourselves very lucky to be a part of this school.

My daughter attended Catholic School until she needed to attend second grade. I was fortunate enough to hear about this school. So far my husband and I are well pleased. The curriculum has surpassed many of the Catholic Schools we have had her attend in an effort to get her the best education with moral and ethical values included. Of course liek all things their is room for improvement. The principal is highly involved and the teachers are great at what they do. They work hard to give the children the opportunity to get a well rounded curriculum. My daughter also attends the star program and she loves it. It ranges to be about $400 per month and is well worth it. The star program offers more than many other programs in the area. The school may wish to consider implementing a PE program with a curriculum which includes uniforms.

I have a non-verbal autistic son. Rosewood is a RARE find, it integrates disabled students so naturally into the environment that to be a typical student is a gift. This school employees the most exceptional teachers in Los Angeles. For anyone who is lucky enough to attend Rosewood , they are in for a great education, and a life of understanding.

Any school is only as good as it's teachers and great teachers make Rosewood Elementary a great school. That's why I love the Principle, she is very dedicated and involved with the school. The 'Friends of Rosewood' parent organization meets monthly and is a great place to talk to Principle, teachers and other parents. The afterschool program, STAR, has a veriety of great classes like: chess, magic, rockband, dancing, literacy, painting etc.. My son will be in second grade this fall and I've been very happy with Rosewood.

Generally average. Almost zero PE program. STAR enrichment programs are expensive and provided extremely embarrassing results over the past 2 years. STAR after school program is excellent, but expensive, as are the STAR summer care options. Overall better than some local Hollywood alternatives, but considering the Principal's attitude, the swelling class sizes and expensive after-care options.....there's a lot of room for improvement.

The school is great compared to other LAUSD elementary schools it small and a close communtiy school. There special education is not that great because they have a new teacher and in my opinion 1st time teacher from other career fields shouldn't start out teaching kids with various learning disabiliies.

Average on all accounts. Academically the school would do a lot better if the teachers teamed up within grade levels to elimate the huge differences from one class to the next. The best thing about the school is the Friends of Rosewood. Keep up the good work!

The principal and staff are serious about education as well as good health at Rosewood. Rosewood provides a safe environment for your child. My son now attends Rosewood and is very happy there. There is aloso a great Beyond the Bell after school program that leaves me worry free while I'm at work.

Our children have progressed very nicely at Rosewood. The teachers have proved to pay attention to the children and monitor their progress, and I believe the quality of the education they're getting to be on a par with the best schools in LA. We've found the Principal to be very open to new ideas as long as you don't try talking with her about something important while her attention needs to be focused elsewhere. Timing! The diversity of the student body was very important to us in choosing Rosewood, and our children have had good exposure to many different cultures. The Friends of Rosewood parent organization is extremely dedicated and active. Wish more parents would take advantage of the many invitations to join (we disagree with the parent who gives the group a D-), as the same parents have a heavy responsibility to keep funding going. We are very happy here.

I used to think that this school was a great school until my son went into the fourth grade. Then he had a new teacher, that didn't really teach but the only way I could change the teacher , was change the school (because of his learning disability). So in fifth grade thats what he did. The other school turned out to be totally better than rosewood, they gave him books and he learned more things he needed to know, ie. multiplication. But previous to the fourth grade, he had great teachers. I just don't know what happen.

We feel lucky to be in this 'United Nations' of an elementary school. The Principle is very dedicated and involved. The 'Friends of Rosewood' parent organization meets monthly and is a wonderful place to get to know a terrific group of parents. If you are in or out of the neighborhood I would seriously consider giving it a chance. The overall school scores are not as high as some other local schools due to the diversity of the children; check with the principle's office to learn more about how the school is being scored, what issues are being addressed, etc. The afterschool program, STAR, gives working parents a safe, fun and educational place to leave their children. The cost is not cheap, but there are scholarships for STAR. My son is in second grade and we have been very happy at Rosewood.

My daughter has been at Rosewood since the 4th grade (she's currently in the 5th). During her 4th grade year, she had 4 different teachers! Somehow I still believe she managed to learn consistently. This year I've become disappointed and I'm very happy that she's moving on to middle school. I find the principal good at making appearances and talking efficiently, but the school could be making bounds. At the most important times, she's callous and aloof. My daughter gets plenty of homework that does not reinforce the days activities or check for understanding...but only eats up time. Projects are assigned without rubrics or criteria charts. Rosewood has great potential but falls short. Friends of Rosewood (Parent Group) is it's crowning achievement and is to be commended. Great P.E. teacher (Coach Cliff) as well.

A very good school. Caring teachers and administrators. Parent involvement is very high. Many extracurricular activities available, although hard for kids that don't live in the neighborhood, but this is a District failure, not the school's. Very happy of having my kids attend this school.

Rosewood Avenue Elementary School is a great school nestled on the border of Los Angeles and West Hollywood. The population is made up of a very diverse student and faculty body. Rosewood has many additional resources not offered in many public schools: including, physical education, library, and computer lab. The students are exposed to art, dance, music, and the many cultures of the world. Janet Chapman and Kerry Kehrley do a superb job running the school, they keep an open door to all parents and staff. In addition to the staff, Rosewood receives numerous volunteers from various organizations. My daughters (grades kindergarten and third) are very happy and feel safe. Rosewood Avenue Elementary School is the best school in Los Angeles.

My daughter went their until 2nd grade. Kinder was Awesome. Mrs. Aochi is the best. In second grade my daughter was put in a class where the teacher told me that she was very slow and would never achieve success in school, and that she had an attitude problem. She figured all this out in 1 day. My daughter was a young 2nd grader. A september baby. She was and still is imaginative and had a hard time when she was overwhelmed or intimidated. The principal doesn't care how this teacher judges or treats children that she thinks are not worth her effort. I immediately took my daughter out of the school. She is now in the 5th grade and is at a much more academically challenging private school and has made the honor roll since 3rd grade. She reads at a high school reading level. Glad I left.

My son has been at Rosewood for four years and each year he has a completely different group of kids in his class and since they can only play with their own class at recess and lunchtime, it's very disappointing for me that he doesn't get an opportunity to be in classes with his friends from our neighborhood. The teachers are terrific!I give it an A+ for the quality of the academic programs.The homework is minimal so you have time for after school activies. Classrooms clean, organized,and well stocked. Extracurricular activities are provided by the money raised by the parents. Over all the parents and kids are not very friendly.There's no social life at all.I give it a D- for parent involvement. The principal and vice principle are quite friendly.
