Terrific gifted program. I really enjoyed the teachers and the involvement they showed. The teachers in the gifted program show a real love of teaching. The school however is in a iffy neighborhood. I believe the benifits of the education offered are worth it and would encourage parents to attend.
Sadly, the amount of parent involvement is low. I think if more parents came in to volunteer time to the class and not only for fieldtrips it would make an impact on student/teacher performance. As for extracurricular activities, there is basketball and cheerleading, but no music programs like there were years ago. We need to bring music back to the classroom. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, the same can be said for kids. We need to open their minds and not just go by the new state standards that teachers must follow. It lacks creativity and does not allow for teacher's talents to come out. The state needs to stop cutting off educational funds because that is our most valueable resource, educated minds!
I am a former student of Rose and I spent six years there, but truthfully I hated it there. The principal [was] not the nicest people to the students. But I just loved all my teachers I will really miss them :( parents after spending six years there I give you this advice save your kids. Dont send them to Rose. But if you already enrolled your chidren and they are in gate do them a favor give them the best teachers that Rose can offer: 1. Mrs. Morales 2. Mr. Flournoy 3. Mrs. Barajas 4. Mrs. Dominguez you may be thinking who are the other two teachers but my first grade teacher moved to another school and Mrs. Morales was my 2nd and 3rd grade teacher So to all my old teachers if they read this: I luv u guys :) And i will always remember u.
