We moved our children from the local public school to Holy Rosary several years ago. We regret not making the change in schools sooner. The class size is nearly half of what our local school offers. The teachers are dedicated and have more time to spend with each student. It seems that the majority of the students are very motivated and have supportive families who truly value education. Administration is very involved, fair, and extremely responsive to parent concerns. Overall Holy Rosary has been an excellent experience for our children and family.

This is the first year of middle school since coming over from St. Johns School. I find the academic excellence to be continued in this new environment. What is especially helpful as a parent is the accessibility of the teachers and staff at any time. No question, no concern is insignificant that it will not be addressed in a timely manner. Everyone works together for the best of the student.

Holy Rosary school, like all schools, has it's positive and negative points. On the positive side, some (though not all) of the teachers go above and beyond for the students and work with children of varying academic needs. The negatives include the lack of consistency in the quality of the teaching staff and administrators.

Simply put, care. We are glad that our children have high test score, send students to state for science fair and history day at a greater rate than other schools but ultimately they are the best at witnessing and teaching the children to care for others. There is a constant presences of caring for others in their daily curriculum. You can find it in math class where kindergartners save pennies for good deeds or in english class where they collect books for the less fortunate. There are no test score that will allow them to boast their accomplishments in what they do for others but then again they are taught, serve witout reward. Thank you!

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.
