I have found Rosemount Middle School to be a wonderful place for my child. She chose to switch schools after 4th grade and we are attending RMS out of district. This year she is in 7th grade and came home after the first day bubbling with excitement but also missing her 6th grade teachers. This is a child who dislikes school and suddenly feels like she has her own space and is finally 'getting Middle School.' Let's face it, middle school is tough. The RMS teachers that we've experienced have been outstanding to work with, especially when your child needs extra help, time or just a little love. Thanks to Mr. Strey, Ms. Jaye, Ms. Reinhart, Mr. Amundson, Ms. Lee, Ms. Carter, Mr. Becker, Mr. Monroe, Ms. Schmidt and Ms. D. for making her life and our lives so much easier and enjoyable. Go WACA and Go Gold House. You ROCK!

I am now attending Rosemount Middle School as a 8th Grader and have beed since 6th grade. I really enjoyed 6th grade because I was in the Light house with many fun and nice teachers. And having today as my first day of eighth grade, I saw how un-welcoming people can be. Our school is very profiled. I have many friends but not a lot were in my classes. In gym today, Nobody asked me to say, come walk with them or even said hi. Plus Nobody treated the New students nicely. They just pretended like the new students knew where their new classes where and didnt bother to help. Plus, when they sat at their table they started to giggle and laugh because of how this boy looked. I am very disappointed with how people at this school act. but other then that it is a pretty good school.

I now go to Rosemount High School and I really miss Rosemount Middle School. Rosemount Middle had very good teachers who tried to make learning fun and for the most part they suceeded. If you are debating on what school to go to I strongly suggest Rosemount Middle, you wont regret it.

Rosemount Middle is excellent, it's very easy to make friends, and the classes are challenging but if you don't understand something, they explain it to you until you do.It can be a little cliquey sometimes but usually not too much. I am graduating from Rosemount Middle this year, 2009, and I'm very glad I went to this school rather than some of the other schools in the district. (I myself have not noted much racial discrimination, but that's just me and there are many different points of view) My favorite teachers were/are; Mr. Henning, Mrs. Pietig, Mr. Leigl, and Mr. Gerten. I have not had a teacher I stronly disliked at this school.

With the ever present issues regarding harrassment and bullying in todays school systems, I would like to comment on the safety and discipline at RMS. We take advantage of open enrollment from the Farmington schiool district where safety and discipline are a huge concern. Rosemount Middle School has done a phenominal job of maintaining safety and maintaining zero tolerance of student harrasment and bullying.

This school is amazing! I love it the teachers in my house is great and well educated. The teachers prepare you for high school. The best thing about this school is the environment. The teachers are straight to the point and nice. The students lend a helping hand to everyone. And the school itself is a great place to be in. Attending this school is a very smart choice for you or your child.

My Child has gone here for one full year, and has entered her second year(7th grade) for the 04-05 year. Last year she loved it! Even though she was put in a house with none of her friends, she made tons more! When teh school year ended, she was really sad because she loved her teachers! They were Mr.Strey, Ms.Jaye, Mr.B, and Ms.Keehr.She was in the WACA House. When seventh grade started up, she was so excited, but bummed because she didn't have the same teachers.She is in the Gold house, with all new teachers, and she loves them all! It's only the 5th week of shcool, and she has made many new friends. Also, Rosemount is one of the only schools that hasn't had a bomb threat, or anything along those lines. Rosemount Middle School is the best she's been to, and I highly approve of it.

My child attended here during o2/o3 school yr.She didnt really like it because she had very little friends due to the minority group is very low and the majority group treats you very diffrent. They tend to class you,judge you by apperance or your possesions,and treat you diffrently because of it.The children of the majority race clearly are not taught by their parents about diffrent races.They are very close minded and need educating in that department.However the teachers are well educated even though some of them have racial issues as well.I can also say the teachers care about their students,and i appreciate that espicially after we moved to Georgia where most of the teachers dont care at all.Even with some of the racial issues my children and i prefer this school over Georgia schools(issues can be worked out).If your thinking of uprooting to a diffrent state dont choose Georgia(sorry we moved).
