Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

They used to be very effective, but there's been a lot of recent turnover. Now many teachers are just there for the paycheck. And many are NOT qualified. They are young and inexperienced.

Amount of homework: Disagree

Classes are huge, and students don't get as much done in class, so they have more homework. And without their full resource program, kids with learning disabilities take up a lot of time, so the 30+ other kids in the room are basically ignored.

What a huge disappointment! We have been at St. Rose for quite awhile. It used to be an amazing school. Recently, there has been a lot of staff turnover, and the results are not good. We are so disappointed in the new principal. She is cold and indifferent, and very closed off. She "listens" to parent concerns, but immediately discounts them and puts her own agenda first. So many changes have been made to this school, which used to be my children's favorite place to go every day. Now, many of my kids' friends have left, and I'm afraid we're next. The new admin is systematically removing all the wonderful traditions and events, and taking the joy out of the school. The new theme is a strong bottom line, and they will make whatever cuts they need to achieve that. The almighty dollar has won here. Teachers are working here as a job, and not a vocation that they enjoy. I don't even know this school anymore. So if you're looking for a great school for your kids with a warm and fun feel and excellent staff, look elsewhere.

Everything I Was Looking for in a School...And More. St. Rose is more than just a great school. It is a great family community. My kids are thriving there, and have so many great friends. The teachers are exceptional, and really took the time to get to know my children. They truly care about them; that is evident. As any parent, I want the very best for my kids, and I feel like that's what we we are getting at St. Rose. My kids are challenged, happy, and growing. They like school and they love their teachers and friends. They are given many opportunities for growth and leadership. They are active and love the sports program and after school activities. Best of all, everything is right here at the school: academics, sports, music, extracurriculars, social activities, .faith and service opportunities, and fun. This is a safe and wonderful place to grow up!

These teachers are top notch! They are definitely some of the best teachers out there. So glad they choose to be at St. Rose!


Amount of homework: Agree

My kids still have time to pursue sports and activities outside of school. They learn a lot, but they are able to be kids and spend time with friends and family, also!

Develops character: Strongly agree

Students are held accountable for their actions, which isn't always the case in the larger society. These children know the value of treating others with respect and taking responsibility for their actions.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

These are some of the most dedicated teachers I have ever come across. They get excited about their lessons and are constantly coming up with new ideas to engage students. My kids love their teachers!


Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Teachers are actually limited in the amount of homework they can assign. I really like this, as it gives my kids a chance to relax, have family time and play sports. They spend enough time learning during school!

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Student Learning Expectations are a huge focus here, especially character development. Students are guided to be helpful, law abiding citizens and leaders.
