I love this school! We moved from out of town and my daughter was really scared on her first day of school and the teacher came and took her by the hand and walked her to the front of the line to stand right by her and my daughter was smiling so big! Her teacher was like a mother hen! I remember feeling so relieved and happy to know that she would be so well taken care of! My son is now at this school, too, and he tells me that he misses his teacher on the weekends. I love, love, love this school! In addition to the staff's loving attitudes, my children have thrived academically and socially under their tutelage. I highly recommend this school!

My son just started kindergarten and is really happy. He loves going to school and the first thing he does when he comes home is to show me his work.

This school is a small school with problems. There is an extreme amount of gossip that goes on at this school. While our child never had issues with anyone or any problems going to this school, I felt horrible being a part of the Rosedale community. The 2 teachers we had both seemed to have issues with backstabbing and idle talk! Our son didn't seem to learn anything while he was there, but I learned plenty! I learned about the attitudes of many of the staff towards the diverse community that was at Rosedale. Thankfully we moved from the Rosedale Elem. area, but even if we hadn't, we wouldn't have sent our child back. Also, the school was completely disorganized, there was never a correct way of doing anything, because it would change from day to day. I was confused most of the time because they didn't seem to have a consistent routine or structure. My child wasn't quite sure what to do on a daily basis, because there was a lack of routine or procedures. I just depended on who was running the show, and how they felt like doing it that day!

Rosedale is a wonderful place! We have been there for two years and I am so impressed with all of the teachers and staff. Rosedale has the benefit of being a small school that really knows how to tap into it's available resources. Churchill High School is right next door and Churchill students regularly volunteer as ELVS (early literacy volunteers) and with other school programs. We have great family events like the fall fun fair and spring ice cream social. There is an active PTA and many parents volunteer regularly in the classroom and for school field trips. I really appreciate the 'down to earth' nature of the Rosedale families. Most seem like hard working folks who care a lot about their children.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

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.
