Students are given individual attention allowing them to learn at their level.

Rosa Taylor is a great place to learn. The teachers are always willing to give extra help to students.

Poor choice for Autism Spectrum students. They are not understood or welcomed by school staff. I deeply reget the year my son endured there, and in retrospect wish I would of pulled him and placed him in a more understanding/accomodating environment.

My children currently attend Rosa Taylor. There is not one thing I could say bad regarding the faculty and staff and their caring for the children and the education. One thing we do need to work on is parent involvement. Being one who does volunteer with the school quite often I see how incredible it could be if we had more parent's just commit to a little more time at the school. I work full time, but find time after work or on the weekends. Involvement doesn't have to be at the school or during school hours. There are many things us as parents can do. My children are well above their friends in private schools in the same grade. I am extremely please with the quality of education my children receive!

My son attended Rosa Taylor for Pre-K and the first term of kindergarten before we moved out west. The students are polite and the administrators know each student and parent! RT isn't as fashionable as Alex II (my older son was there for 2 years) but the teachers and education are just as high quality. If you are in the Taylor district, you can feel good about your child's school experience.

This is an awful school. Parental involvement is not encouraged here. The staff does not understand Asperger's syndrome. Not a good school choice for special needs students. Disappointed I sent my son to this school, and looking forward to a better experience next year elsewhere.
