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!

The teachers and staff members are not supportive to your child's needs. There are some great teachers, yet some horrible teachers that makes the curriculum and education very unstable. I do not recommend risking your child's education.

Rosewood is amazing! The teachers and staff are wonderfully dedicated to our children, and the administration is constantly exploring new ways to materially enhance the learning environment through pilot programs and third-party participation. We, a parents, always feel welcome and encouraged to participate in the school.

My children loved Rosewood, we moved years ago but still remember all the great experiences, talent show, playing handball in the yard, vocal music, games and events in the yard.

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.

I love, love this school. My daugher has been coming here since Pre-K and she will finish Elementary here. I take the drive because it is worth it. The staff takes good care of the kids. 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

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
