Rosary High School has been an incredible experience for me. Not only have I been provided the opportunity to grow academically, I have developed into a better, more confident, and intelligent woman. Rosary's all girls atmosphere provides the students a safe place to be educated. The teachers truly care about you, and make you comfortable with coming to them for any help that is needed. Rosary has a phenomenal sense of community, and the sisterhood is incredibly strong. The classes are engaging, and fit to the students. There are a wide variety of college and AP credit classes offered, which I have taken advantage of. The high quality of classes makes Rosary the college prep that it is. Rosary gives the students the opportunity to pursue subjects they love, there are many sports, extracurricular activities, and academic clubs that are available. Rosary is a very special place and the faculty and staff make it the best it can be. It will always hold a special place in my heart because it has shaped me into the well informed, strong, and independent woman and leader that I am.
Rosary High School is an above average educational institution for young women. They provide their students with the educational tools needed to succeed in college and beyond. In addition, the teachers go above and beyond to reach out to their students who may be struggling with their studies. Rosary High School's educational standards and religious beliefs have positively affected the lives of many successful women.
My daughter is about to complete her freshman year. Rosary is definately a great college prep school! She is developing good study habits. Coming from a public school she really appreciates a great learning environment.
Our daughter is a sophomore and we couldn't be happier with Rosary. We are confident she will be well prepared for college both academically and characterwise.
Rosary is a fantastic place for girls to prepare for college and life beyond. This tight knit community offers girls the skills and opportunities they need to grow into women. Rosary has an exemplary education program that lays a great foundation for higher education. As a college student, I can attest to how Rosary shapes their students to be a cut above the rest. Its not just about the academics though, Rosary High School is a family. Even after graduating, visiting is like going back home. Trust me, you'll miss the uniforms and the announcements and the pop quizzes and the smell of bosco sticks. Going to Rosary was the best decision of my life so far. It shaped me into the person I am and I owe so much to that school and the faculty and all that it stands for.
a great environment for young Christian women to grow and learn. My two nieces are great examples of the Rosary experience.
Rosary High School helped me to grow into a confident young woman, and gave me the skills I needed to succeed in my college years. The Dominican pillars are truly present throughout all aspects of the school. The faculty and staff truly care about the girls attending, and push them to do their best.
When a girl enters Rosary she's just a girl. When she graduates she is an accomplished young adult! The confidence, pride, and overall grace the girls graduate with is amazing. During their 4 years at Rosary the girls grow, mentally, emotionally, academically, and spiritually! Rosary is an amazing safe, warm & inviting place to be!
Rosary was a gift to me by my parents first of all. The school has taught me in the span of 9 months just how incredibly important education is for me. Beyond the work and homework assignments is a greater goal, and I am always being taught by the most engaging teachers to focus on that goal for my own future good. It has started me on a path for excellence by proving to me that they offer the best plan for success around.
Rosary is a small, all-girls', college-prep, Catholic high school. It is a place where girls can focus on becoming the best possible person that they can be. The studies are rigorous, especially in the honors courses. Rosary grads leave well-prepared to face the challenges of college: the academic, social, and moral challenges. Teachers at Rosary care about their students and the girls know that they can get extra help, when needed.
Rosary is an excellent college preparatory Catholic high school. It builds strong young women who are leaders. We love the Dominican tradition of fine teaching, morals and character.
Rosary is a very loving school. Whether you're a freshman, or a new senior, Rosary embraces everyone. It provides an excellent education, I'm learning so much in a year it's amazing. I can't believe how much I've learned in just two semesters. The teachers are always saying hello in the hallway, along with the guidance counselors, who have made a huge impact on my life. The classrooms are full of subject-related material that adds a unique atmosphere to a room that suddenly becomes a whole new world. Everyone, including the staff, accepts each other equally. Rosary really allows me to be me.
This school is supposed to be about sisterhood and community. This school so so desperate for their money they will do anything. They try and make it seem like they are such a great school there is so much drama and nothing ever gets resolved. They say teachers are looking for the students best interest but I can tell you they aren't. Half the teachers don't teach you anything, if your kid is smart then send there here because that's all they care about. The teachers shove their view on government down your child's throat. All Rosary cares about money and there "social status" . It would nice to see the administration start to be a little bit more proactive , but all they do is send your child with bitter remarks. They hand out detentions like its candy. I would not recommend Rosary High School. Give the 5000 dollars to a school that needs it and not to a school whos tuition is almost 10000 a year and all they do is take your money because everything at Rosary has a charge even your detentions.
Rosary has made a huge impact on my daughter. This school, one that, admittedly, is rather small, has a teacher staff the has a huge heart. My daughter has struggled in many subjects, however, after talking to her teachers about what she's having trouble understanding, her grades have improved immensely. Rosary is a fantastic school with a great atmosphere that I would recommend immediately to any parent with a daughter.
I am a freshman who attends Rosary High School, I chose to go to this school because of the better academics and the warm, family environment. So far I have been pleased by my choice. The work is challenging, but reasonable for a college prep school. The teachers are all ways ready to help and everyone is ready to help you through any struggle. I also am in Rosary's sports programs. Which are, hands down, the best sports program I've seen. The coaches are ready to work on every skill and build you into a stronger athlete. Rosary overall is a fun, free, inspiring environment to help you grow into a better person.
The atmosphere and supportive presence among these girls is nothing short of AMAZING! These young women are encouraged to be strong in the classroom, share their opinions and be future leaders of the world. They are faith filled women that take pride in their philanthropy projects and giving back to the community. Rosary is A+ place to educate your daughter!
Rosary. Wow. What an amazing school. I honestly can't believe how much I love it. I wasn't sure about it at first, after all, it's a small, Catholic, college-prep high school for girls. But after my first week as a "new girl", my classmates welcomed me with open arms and many of them became my good friends. Thank you, Rosary, for giving me the chance to go to a school where I could be myself.
Rosary is unique in that it is all girls college prep, Catholic school. It does a fine job of challenging these young girls on becoming outstanding women in academics, and all extracurricular activities! My daughter is a freshman, and has had to work harder than she ever has before, but I believe is learning a lot about life, and how hard work pays off! High school is different today, and Rosary is preparing our young women for success!
I now know what they said at orientations was spot on. I have one daughter who has graduated from Rosary, and one that is a Junior. They have both "found their voice" as a young woman and can articulate what they believe in and speak up for themselves. We need our kids to be able to do this as they will shape our world moving forward
Rosary High School provides friendship, faith and fantastic learning opportunities! The education my daughter received, as well as the opportunities for community service and extracurricular activities prepared her tremendously for her college search. With her Rosary education in her portfolio, my daughter earned admission to each college she applied to, including Northwestern University, Augustana College and the Honors College of the University of Illinois at Chicago. In fact, Rosary prepared her so well that she was awarded UIC's President's Award Program Honors Scholarship, a full four year tuition, room and board offer ! Rosary High School gave my daughter a first class education and allowed her to grow and thrive and become a well rounded student, young woman and citizen of the world with a brought and fantastic future!
