This 2012-13 school year was the first year my son has attended Rosemont. Contrary to some post I have read, the involvement of parents was encouraged by the staff. I was sad on some occassions to see how few parents actually came out. But, my son learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed school this year! He had a great teacher and after the first week of summer break he was "ready to go back to school to learn some more" (his words). Every organization has flaws, but overall I think this is a good school with committed teachers and administraton. The staff I have encountered has been very helpful, knowledgable and professional.
The school is evolving. Not yet sure if for the better or not. Hate the fact that this is a zone charter. Defeats the purpose of charter if your still mingling with riff raff. Hoping for improvements but sad I missed the transfer deadlines for my 6th grader. Teachers and staff are ghetto, unprofessional and do not encourage parent involvement except when discipline is needed.
Rosemont is an excellent school. My son transferred from a county school to this school and as far as academics, it is head and shoulders above its county counterpart. Academics are stressed as well as pride in your work and surroundings. The principal is very nurturing to the students and the teachers come in ready to work. My son is no longer the smartest in his class so he now has a real challenge. I hope to keep him here through 8th grade.
