The early childhood program which is Montessori based is a core strength at Rosarian. Although pricey, it is well worth it.

We have three children at Rosarian Academy and couldn't be happier. Our children are not only learning to excel in the classroom but also to be strong young boys and girls who are compassionate and supportive of their fellow classmates.

Rosarian Academy is an excellent school. My children have flourished there and my son, now in high school, is more than prepared. Rosarian also produces confident, enriched, motivated students who are leaders in and out of school. Go to any area high school and you will certainly find that the students who came from Rosarian are now leaders in their high school.

Rosarian has given us not only a great education for our 3 kids but has given us the opportunity to make family friendships that will last a life time. We could not be happier with the education, and values that our kids have gotten at the school that we are sure will be of great value as they are preparing to head off to college and as it has been when they stepped into HS.

I regret the fact I didn't pay attention to the bad reviews about this school before enrolling my child. If you care about your child education this is the wrong school. Their curriculum is below average. My son was an honor student in his previous school before I transferred him to Rosarian Academy. I noticed his homework assignments were below standard at Rosarian Academy. Recently he was tested in another school for acceptance and his performance was awful. Most of the classroom only have 12 students and the teacher can't still figure out how to solve problems between children. If you enjoy going to auction balls, fundraising and social events then this is the right place to be. If you really care about your child education and the money invested on it, run away!!!

SO disappointed, now perhaps that the previous 2012-2014 Montessori director is gone, ( I wonder what happened there?), perhaps they will get someone in there who will monitor the lower school teachers better.

Awful program! The Montessori pre-school is no different than a daycare. You think it's great while you are in it, but when you leave you realize your children are NOT prepared for Kindergarten. My children played with dirt and did puzzles all day. I would rather have had them learning phonics, ABC's and blending words together. Out new school told us our children did not get a good foundation for early learning. Save your money and find a place with a blackboard and certified teachers (I asked one teacher about her Montessori certification and she told me she was "getting it"). Plus it's not real "Montessori Method" it's been modified.

Both of our children our currently in the Montessori program at Rosarian Academy and our flourishing due to the loving, caring and nurturing environment provided my such an amazing and dedicated Staff. From their day full of learning to the aftercare program we couldn't be happier and definitely recommend Rosarian Academy.

We love this school! I started my 9 month old in the Montessori program after experiencing great success with her older sister enrolling at 1 year. The staff is thoughtful, gentle and loving and the girls LOVE going to school! The skills they have learned are tremendous for their age. The community is warm and inviting. There is nothing ill to be said about our experience with Rosarian.

Rosarian has a wonderful caring and loving environment. When you go to Rosarian you belong to a family, and your children get that care every step of the way.

I have four children, that have all attended or attend Rosarian. Rosarian Academy has been a part of our family for 10 years and I look forward to the years that I have left to spend there. Whether it is watching the kids in afterschool programs or volunteering myself, Rosarian truly gives me a sense of relief knowing they are getting a wonderful education! I wouldn't want them going anywhere else that's why chose Rosarian!!!!

I have two children who attend Rosarian Academy. I started there when my children were entering Kindergarten and the Pre-School Montessori Program four years ago. I have been impressed with care and the attention that has been given by every teacher and staff member. It is a wonderful community to be a part of and I know my children are getting the best education possible in the most nurturing environment.

This is our third year at Rosarian Academy. Our children both started in the Early Childhood program after having already been to two pre-schools. Our oldest child is now in the Lower School. We only have the most positive things to say about the school. The moment we walked onto the campus, we felt welcomed and a great sense of family and community. If you are looking for the whole package--strong academics; faith-centered; excellent sports; phenomenal arts and drama; wide-array of extra-curricular offerings; safe and loving environment; small class sizes; community service outreach opportunities; plenty of ways to volunteer at your children's school--then Rosarian is the place for your family.

After 3 years of thinking we'd chosen the best school with the most caring teachers, we were socked in the face by the director or the lower class program, teacher and principal of the school. SO very disappointed. I would never expect anything like this especially if you are giving your right and left arm for your child to have what you thought would be the best education.

We started our kids at Rosarian 3 years ago. What seemed like a great school has turned into a great disappointment. The school is going through lots of changes with the administration, and perhaps that's the issue. I know 2 other families who left the school in the last few weeks, and we are not far behind. The curriculum is not challenging, and I'm fearful that my kids are not learning what they should be learning. Our younger son, who is in the Montessori program, plays with corn and trains all day. I'm told that these improve his gross motor skills. Forgive me, but I'd rather have my child learn his alphabet and numbers. I drank the Montessori kool aide, but I've finally come to realize that the preschool is nothing more than a glorified day care center. Save yourself the expense and find a cheaper alternative.

Watered down curriculum (so parents think their children are smarter than they really are), children have entitlement issues, rude parents and failing leadership. Be wary! Over priced, and no concept of how to run a contemporary school.

We had 3 children attend Rosarian over a period of 18 years. The quality of the education they received is unparalled in the area and has prepared them very well for the rigorous and demanding International Baccalaureate program in high school. There is a strong sense of community amongst teachers,administration, students and parents. We took comfort in knowing that our family values and morals were being reinforced while our kids were in school there. The only regret we have is that we didn't have more children to send there!

As a parent of two graduating students from Rosarian Academy, I can say that they both received an excellent education to prepare them for any high school of their choosing. The faculty and staff are dedicated and the leadership is top notch. The new Principal took the position reluctantly not because she did not want the job, but she loved the position as the head of Middle School. She has transitioned into her position masterfully, and she is admired and respected by all. The school has kept many traditions, but the teaching is 21st century. The academics and sports are exceptional, but just walk onto the campus to feel the love and spirit of community. I couldn't think of a better place to spend 10 of the most important years with my children. What a relief knowing I am sending them to high school with sound mind, body and spirit.

Since the former principal (Sister Corinne) left, Rosarian's leadership has been disappointing, to say the least. The current principal and the lower school principal are mired in the past and have no concept of how to run a progressive school. The teachers are wonderful, but with leadership like this, it's no wonder enrollment is down. We will not be returning in the fall.

It's a shame what has happened to this once great school. From my understanding, the head principal did not want to be principal this year. However, she was basically forced into the position because the school could not find anyone willing to become principal here. I have been told that the lower school principal does not have the credentials to be a principal....not a place of great leadership.

I went to Rosarian Academy for 8 years. The school is phenomenal. The teachers are amazing and really dedicated to what they do. The education is by far the best in the county, the athletics are good, nothing exceptional, but after all it is a lower school and a middle school. They teach students the basics in every sport in P.E. classes, and sports teams are also available to the students if they seek in becoming better at a particular sport. Attending Rosarian is like adding your family to an even larger one. Everyone knows everyone, and community events are held frequently. It's also a Catholic School, and an excellent one at that. Your child will become closer to God. There has never been any bullying, and this is coming from the social butterfly! I would recommend Rosarian Academy to any family looking for strong academics, sports, and a pursuit in spiritual life.

I'm not sure when we strayed from being an upstanding Catholic School, to an over-priced snob school. Our children are graduating, and struggling in high school. Where are our dollars going?
