This is an outstanding bargain at $3500 per year. The classes are intimate and many of the the teachers have been with the school for decades. New teachers have been carefully selected and some older, less effective have been retired. The school is safe, clean and positive. So many participate in the activities and sports, and the parent network is just wonderful. HRS has the best in books and technology. There is no gym or A/C, which are the only negatives. My children who have graduated from this school have been accepted to the private schools of their choice (high schools) and have scored over 1,100 in the SAT in the 8th grade via the Johns Hopkins Talent Search.

Holy Rosary is an excellent school, combining an outstanding educational experience with small classes, a family atmosphere and an overall positive environment. The faculty and staff are experienced and dedicated; the students happy to be there. Like any school, it is not perfect, but it is not for a lack of trying. I am happy to have my children attend Holy Rosary and would choose it again without hesitation.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
