If I could rate this school zero I would. Their pickup and drop off practices are stupid and unsafe. They say they require uniforms but every time I have ever been there most of the kids are not in uniform. All the kids have terrible behavior. I have had to have talks with school administrators about the endless problems with the lack of safety and lack of education my child is experiencing. I was told they couldn't do anything about the safety issues and I was told that they would get back back to me about the educational issues the next day and 2 weeks later still nothing. The treatment my child has gotten at this school is terrible and as soon as I can arrange a transfer we are out of there. Don't send your child to this school unless you are lazy and don't care about what happens to your children as long as you don't have to watch them.

This school is a joke! The staff is rude and very unenthusiastic about the students. The act like they have hangovers. I've witnessed them talking about a students parent in front of everyone. They don't have any activities for the children, no field trips, nothing to get the kids excited about being a student at Rosemont Elementary. This school needs a huge turn around in staff and they wonder why the are a low grade school. Now as for the teachers Mrs. Devalle and Mrs. Aho are outstanding if we had more teachers and staff like them I'm sure this school would have the possibilities of being an A+ School.

This school has been very helpful with my children learning needs. I have had relationships with the 3rd and 4th grade teachers so far and the 1 in 3rd was great and the two in 4th are awesome! This is a wonderful school!

My two boys attend Rosemonte Elementary and in all the years I have dealt with the school I have never had a problem with it. Everytime go into the office I am given very professional service and attention. The teachers my kids have had are great. They have went above and beyond their call of duty to see my kids excell. I do not care to much for the Rosemont area, but I'm glad that I at least got a great school in moving here.

I love Rosemont. My three children all attend Rosemont, and we have had a very pleasant experience. I have attended all of the family math,science, and reading nights. I don't go there for refreshments, but to learn new and innovative ways to encourage my children to learn. The teachers all care about their students well being, and there are tons of help if needed. The school offers tutoring at no cost, and the teachers go above and beyond to help the students. Keep up the good work Rosemont!

Rosemont is a great school! The parents need to get more involve with their kids at home. i.e help them with theirn homework, reading etc. The Principal Mrs. Hodges is Great!

This school has left a bad taste in my mouth. The office staff is rude unhelpful and just plain unpleasant. Most of the teachers are up to par and friendly. The assistant principle needs further training in my book on how to run things he just isnt very professional. If I had a choice I would definitly send my child to a different school!

This is my first year at Rosemont and so far it meets my expectations. The staff & faculty are professional, pleasant and knowledgeable. They offer tutoring after school and extended day program for working parents. The extended day program help with homework, arts & craft, outside play, computer lab, ect; The school encourages parent involvement via PTA, Math Night, Reading Night, Social Activities, etc; Since the beginning of school, I have visited the campus to have lunch with my children, parent involvement or any other time at random and I was treated with respect and with a smile. My children have homework every night and don't complain. Their teachers have an open door policy and are available whenever I need them. Many of the parents are working parents and not stay at home moms or self-employed but the school reach out to keep everyone involved. Keep up the good work Rosemont.

Rosemont's administration & faculty are top-notch! They really care about the students, and their social & academic progress. They also stress respect & caring for others. My son is in his 5th year at Rosemont and has progressed in all aspects. I would encourage parent involvement in PTA and other activities, as it will only strengthen what Rosemont already has going for it. Up until this year, he was involved in Extended Day, which he enjoyed thoroughly as well. Rosemont Eagles SOAR!

Rosemont, though a beautiful school has its problems. I have never felt welcomed in my child's classroom, and the teacher will seldom directly answer my questions. It has been a frustrating year.

There is hardly any parent involvement at this school. There are hardly no after school programs that all students can attend. The office staff is rude and short no matter what time of the day you contact them, on the phone or in person...They don't have a great deal of help for students that need it in math and reading! but then they are quick to fail your child because of it.

There are no activities for the children outside of school. The last parent night they were out of refreshments for the adult sand children. On the bright side my daughter's teacher Mrs. Cochran is very upbeat and into her students.

The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
