This school is the cream of the crop!!! Everything is perfect and well organized!! I have never seen such a caring and loving staff. Everyone keeps a constant smile on their face and are there to answer any questions that you have without hesitation. Couldn't be happier as a parent!

We have been at this school for 4 years now, after Montessorri we were not sure what path we wanted to take, by far we made the right decission. Rosemont is like a Private School, the staff are exceptional and the academics are great! My child has done nothing but exhaled.

I can't say enought about this school! My children were only there a short time, but they got so much out of Rosemont. The teachers are all amazing. Mrs. Givins the principal is very involved and the students all love her!

I have 2 kids at this school (#rd grade and K). Always had a great experience until we got to the 2nd grade level. In 2nd grade we had to have a meeting because I found out my child was getting detention for not completeing morning work (grammar) in time (students were given this before the bell rang and the avg had 30 min more time than he had). Now that he is in 3rd grade he has tested on 1st grade level in language and grammar. I was told by the Vice Principal not to worry about this because he does not need that in order to pass until he gets in the 5th grade APALLING. After I explained that this was absolutely unacceptable I was told that he would be tutored. That was 3 weeks ago and 2 contact attempts with his teacher...no response no tutor :( It is very easy to teach a child that learns easy.....what makes a great educator are those that are willing and capable of helping those who struggle at learning.

The school is tops in every category!!! I haven't witnessed such devotion to children since my own mother taught school years ago. If you can get your child here, do it!!!

My 2 daughters attend Rosemont and they love it. The staff is great and seem to really stress learning. I would recommend this school to anyone.

I have 2 boys that have attended Rosemont since Pre-K. My youngest is in 5th grade this year. I am so sad that we will be leaving this great school. We have been blessed with awesome teachers who have gone out of their way to help my boys when needed. Natalie Givins is a great leader for the school. I like the fact that she and all the teachers have always been very acessible. Rosemont is a wonderful, family oriented school. Anyone whose children attend there are lucky.

We have three children at Rosemont (one in second grade, two in Pre-K). We love the school and their teachers, Ms. Ray and Ms. Tytle. My wife assists at the school thus has an inside look at what goes on there. She believes the friendly atmosphere, quality teachers and overall educational success are directly related to the principal, Natalie Givens. There is excellent communication between the teachers and us regarding our kids work and progress. We appreciate the effort and dedication of the Rosemont teachers and staff.

I think Rosemont is a great place for my children. They have high expectations for all their students. My daughter's self esteem has really flourished at Rosemont.

As the parent of a child who has been in this school from k-4th grade I have really enjoyed this school. The teachers are great and they always keep you updated on whats going on with your child. My daughter loves going to school and the few times that she's missed, she cried to go. The school is very clean, in a nice environment, and I frequently go to have the delicious lunches that the staff provides. Rosemont has a lot of resources for parents to help their kids and the teachers are always nice and eager to speak with you about your childs progress.

Rosemont Elementary is a great school because the principal encourages the parents to get involved in all aspect of school life. The communication between teachers and parents couldn't be better. It takes both sides, working together, to give our children the best education they can possibly get. The principal has definitely given us that.

I am so proud that my child attends Rosemont Elementary School. From the administration to the teachers and staff, the children come first in all they do! As a parent, I am made to feel a part of the Rosemont family!

I have 2 girls that attend Rosemont and they love it. They have been very fortunate to have had great teachers. The only thing I would 'suggest' is the amount of homework that is sent home everynight. I don't remember having that much when I was there age. Anyhow, I love Rosemont Elementary and I really appreciate all the Teachers hard work.

I myself went to Rosemont as a child and loved it! I have 4 boys now, one already attending there. Rosemont is a good school, although improvements are needed, as for any and all schools. My concern at this time is homework assignment understanding for the younger students, the teachers are not very informative to the parents needs. And I feel the need for a web site for this school, but it takes parents to do more, to gain more.

Rosemont has some really fantastic teachers but unfortunately they also have some slackers. We have experienced both. The plus is you can request a teacher. Do your homework.
