This school is the best school in the area, they have worked so well with my autistic son. They are patient, caring, work hand and hand with the parents, and instill great morals in the children. The Principal and Kindergarten teach along with the office staff are top in my books. Keep up the great work.

Holy Rosary Catholic School is a fantastic school. The principal is 1st rate. The teachers are 1st rate. This school was suppose to close and the teachers and parents sent a message to the Diocese of Lansing that was totally unexceptible. They have worked hard.

This is an excellent school where everyone is part of the family. The class sizes are great and there is wonderful parent involvement. I couldn't ask for anything more. Not only are my children learning the fundamentals of their education, they are also learning integrity, honesty, and compassion. The entire staff is wonderful. I would recommend this school to everyone.

I have 3 children, all are at, or have attended Holy Rosary Catholic School. My oldest is now in High School, 9th grade, and was well prepared for the challenges he met. I have a 7th grader, and a 2nd grader still at Rosary. I cannot even tell you how happy I am with this school, the class sizes are GREAT. Lots of individual attention, if needed. If my child falls behind she is not lost in the masses. A great place for involved parents ! Sports opportunities, small enough, so everyone gets to play. Good dress code, hot lunches, drama, & gym. A well rounded, AFFORDABLE education. Well worth my money, & my time.

This is a school where you want to have your child go. If you live in Davison, Flint, Genesee, Burton, anywhere, bring your children here to experience the way school should be. Excellent teachers, quality education with a moral base, and parents that want the same for their children as you, the best.

Holy Rosary is a great school where everyone feels at home - a part of a big family that looks out for each other and cares for each other. The teachers are great with the kids and give them a lot of individual attention. Parents are very ivolved with the school and their presence is definately felt in the environment. Even my youngest who is not ready for school yet feels at home there and can't wait to start. I would recommend it to everyone.

This is a great school. I never had the luxury to go to a private school. My daughter is 6 and had 14 classmates. Even so I think the kids are a little rowdy.

I have been pleased with the education all of my children have received in all aspects of their education including the spiritual, scholastic and social aspects. Tuition is affordable, the teachers go above and beyond to meet the needs of all students and the families are committed to making life at Holy Rosary vibrant. A great place to go!

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.
