We pulled our child out of the school because we did not feel it was a safe environment for him.

Academics are fine. Supervision during snack/recess/after school needs improvement. We pulled our child out of the school because he was getting bullied and did not feel it was a safe environment.

Our Lady of the Rosary School has a warm, intimate, and clean environment. Teachers are caring and willing to go the extra mile for their students. Discipline is a top priority. Here, a half done work is unacceptable because each student is encouraged to give their best effort, in academics and sports. Most importantly, every child must live like Jesus.

I have both of my children at this school, the class size is small, the environment is safe and it is very affordable. Teachers care and the academic standards are above average and challenging.

i think this school is not as great as I thought it would be, the teachers are waaay too strict, and they would always put me down, because I was a slow learner...

This school is a great and wonderful school that instills spiritual and ethical values to the full extent in everyday activities. Whether the children be out to recess or in the classroom, they are always taught to respect one another and to be tolerant of the differences of others. There is always someone taking care of them outside during recess and lunch, which lessens the probability of a child getting hurt, and is a great thing to know as a parent because you know that your child is safe. There is an after-school program that ends at 5 o'clock and several sports throughout the year. My daughter graduated about two years ago and this school is like a home to her. Everyone at this school is friendly, the teachers are great, and the involvement of parents is astounding. This school is the best!

Oh my goodness, what can I say about this school? I went here since I kindergarten and I graduated with the closest friends one could ever have. This school has the warmest, the most close-to-home environment ever and I never wanted to leave after school. I joined all the sports it offered: volleyball, softball, and basketball. This school has been so great to me and the priests and teachers are always ready and willing to help you. Children who are kicked out of public schools are sometimes enrolled here and after a few months, you can see a change(for the better). I have many wonderful memories in this school, and even though it's not the wealthiest school, I had fun every day here. My opinion toward this school is too great to put into words, and Our Lady of the Rosary School should definitely be recognized. It's awesome...

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
