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!
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.
Two of my children have graduated from St. Rose. Both were accepted into private high schools with honors and one even received an academic scholarship. I can honestly say that they were both prepared for high school, as they are both doing well (at different schools!). They are also good people who care about others. And they tell me that some of their closest friends are still their St. Rose buddies. They have many fond memories of their school and still like to go to some of the school events and visit with their past teachers. Thank you, St. Rose, for helping my kids do great things! What a fantastic foundation for success.
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!
