Kwame Nkrumah Academy is a wonderful, sensitive Charter School with a home feeling for students and parents. I am happy my grandchild has found a place at Kwame, where he has a well-rounded learning experience.

Roseland Christian is a hidden jewel. We have two children attending the school and we are very pleased with the principal, teachers and the overall academic environment. The school hosts great events including a Fine Arts Festival, Grandparents Day and Christmas Concert. The school is safe, clean and brightly decorated with children's artwork. The class sizes are small, making it easy for a teacher to give our children the extra support that they need.

If you are looking for a supportive learning environment, than you have found it! I had two children at Roseland (one graduated 3 years ago, and my youngest is going into the 5th grade). I love this school, and so do my children.

As a Roseland Christian alumni and current mommy, I am very satisfied with the quality of education that my daughter is receiving. The teachers and staff are dedicated to there jobs. It is very reasuring to know that when you leave your child, they treat them as there own. They are not only caring Christian people, But dedicated Educators. And teach the children to strive for excellence!

This is my daughter's second year at Roseland and I have nothing but good things to say about our experience at Roseland. The teachers and the staff always display helpful and caring attitudes towards the students. Principal Waddy knows every child by name which amazes me. I look forward to this school year and our future experiences at Roseland.

I have two daughters that attend RCS. The school is excellent. The staff is well diverse and very nurturing. The principal as well as the other staff members are all very approachable and easy to talk too. Academic set up is also excellent. My kids are young and they are speaking Spanish-to each other of course. I commend the teachers for their dedication and commitment. Please keep the kids encouraged. I would strongly recommend others to attend this excellent place of learning. 'Satisfied Mommy'

I love the school I trust it and know that they will educate my child well. I am a graduate and have had much success because of the solid foundation I received there. This is a good place for children to learn and grow.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
