This was one of the worst schools I have ever attended. The two 6 grade teachers and Vice Pr. are the best. The PTA has very little to no participation from the parents or teachers. Who knows what the PTA is doing. This school needs a lot of help. The school looks the same. It hasn't changed in over 12 years. What A joke.

My daughter, a 5th grader, has attended Rose Valley since Kindergarten and my younger brother and sister both attended years ago. They all had Ms. Powell-Larkin as their principal and she is the kind of principal you want for your child. She's involved, she knows their names and what/how they are doing. She encourages them to do well and encourages parents to stay involved also. I have peace of mind knowing my child is within the scope of her supervision. I have gotten to choose my child's teachers and have had many opportunities to be involved in various school activities. Ms. Powell-Larkin even had the school chorus repeat a song that my child had a solo in, because I got there late and missed it. She's just great, and the parent support system at Rose Valley is one of a kind.

Fortunately, I was able to select my children's teachers. Therefore, my children had well qualified teachers who were committed to providing the best education to my child as an individual student. They addressed my children's specific needs, as well as the other children in the classroom. Which is a daunting task with the number of children in the classroom (near 30). I'm still amazed by their commitment because of the lack of support and leadership that is provided at the school. There seems to be no accountability in the PG county school system in general, but specifically at Rose Valley. If you are a parent that likes to be involved, the experiences inside the the classroom can be very pleasant, but unfortunately if an issue arises you often feel there is no recourse to address the issue.
