This is a great school. The principal here is always smiling and never goes without speaking. She really cares about her students. Hard to find that these days. The teachers here are great as well. Communication with them is excellent.

I am on the faculty at this wonderful school and have never been happier to be a teacher. If there were problems at the school in the past, they have been dealt with in an appropriate fashion. The teachers that are there now truly love the students and the students respond to that love and understanding. We deal with many "special" students and even the teachers with no special education training have learned to deal with them accordingly. It is truly the school to enroll your child in if they have special needs!

Holy Rosary Academy is a wonderful school. I have 2 children enrolled here and could not be happier. My children never complain about going to school. Ever. They love their teachers and you can tell the teachers love them. The teachers here are truly compassionate about what they are doing. Could not ask for a better school.

Holy Rosary has been a wonderful location for my daughter to attend. She was once a C-D student that has now finished two years in a row on the A-B Honor Roll. The staff and administrators are outstanding I look forward to her finishing there for the next 5 years. Thanks for having such a wonderful school!!!

Not for leaning disabled. It is more like a reform school. The small perscentage of learning disabled students are left to listen to the teachers correct the large population of students that can go no where else. Administration of both schools are slow to move and generally give far too much lee way to students who need to be expelled.

The school is a disaster, Its a school with poor education and poor athletics and a even worse staff. The school opperates slowly and in an unorginized fashion. At one point of time we spend 2 months going over fractions, By sending you child here you are not preparing them for the real world, you are setting them up to fail. Cause once you graduate. the only place that will accept you even as an honor student is the local community college. Dont ruin your childs chances of having a full and successfull life by sending them here

Holy Rosary should not be a school where you send your child to. Its very expensive and your not getting a good education for your child. The Teachers are inexperienced. And the system is very unorginized. I am currently a student at holy rosary and i cannot say that i have really learned anything in my time here.

Holy Rosary Academy is an awesome school which concentrates on every aspect of a child's development. The Teachers and Counselors are very accessible and truly compassionate to the needs of each individual child. The school offers both a grammar and high school with dynamic teachers.

My son is doing very well in this school. I had him enrolled previously in a 'blue ribbon' school where he was given 2-3 hours of homework per day in 1st grade. I pulled him out and sent him to HRA since I believed this amount of homework was not only not beneficial, but harmful to students of this age bracket. My son now looks forward to school each day, is back to his happy-go-lucky self and is not only learning, but learning to love learning. H. Katrina necessitated our leaving this school for 2 years, but upon returning we found many of the same students, staff and faculty welcoming our family back with open arms. I have found that HRA is truly dedicated to their students.

We are parents that are extremely involved in the learning processes of our son. We are intimately familiar with how he learns and retains material presented. Our observations are these: Teaching, as it relates to learning at HRA, is not limited to lecture, memorization then testing. Teaching is not presented for those students who fit nicely into the middle of a bell curve. Teaching is directly correlated to understanding the material, but learning it differently. Simply put, it is helping children learn by exploring the use of multiple modalities to find the method that best suits the diverse learning styles of a student population with varying abilities and talents. We feel that HRA is not afraid to explore new ways to teach the same material and welcomes parental input on our son s learning style. The fact that he enjoys going to school is a lovely bonus for us all.
