This school is completely pathetic, the school / school district worries note about whatstudents wear instead of there EDUCATION. they're there to learn not get sent home because they have pink stitching in there shoes. the shoe is black . If I could send my child to a better school I would. this school doesn't even deserve a star

Rosa Fort has some serious issues, They suspend these children for anything just to keep from having to handle school issues. When I was in school they new how to discipline and talk to us. Now they call the parent for everything when they in your care you should be able to care for them. They even call the parent from there job for simpleness. They suspend you for laying your head down on the desk. I think they should make all there staff take a course on how to deal with children. Some of there staff have the ordasity to put there hand on other people children. They also retaliate against the children after punishing them. They act like they put them on there bad list and one tiny mistake and they gone, that is called retaliation and it's wrong. I wish they would school these teachers and teach them how to deal with these students fairly and stop mistreating them. And for God's sake teach. Our students are so far behind. Rosa Fort can't even teach them how to do algebra, so many students couldn't graduate because they couldn't pass the state test. This is unexceptable. Some of the teachers can't do algebra, and that's sad. You can't help the students when you need help yourself.

My children have been attending Rosa Fort for the last 2 years. They are excited about the activities that are offered. (EX. AFROTC) Both of my children are members and for a single mom raising sons, it has taught them discipline and responsibility. No school is perfect and just like the other reviewer, I think not being able to wear hooded sweaters is just stupid.

its a good school there are some great students and teachers....The curriculum just needs to be more challenging


Posted September 17, 2008

I think Rosa Fort is an okay school. The young adults their don't get challenged enough. And some of the rules are just crazy.Can't were hoods on the coat is getting ready to get cold and some kids are going to get really sick and when the blame go on the school board for this its going to be trouble with the parents. Three years later from when i was a freshman they didn't care not one bit about those kids. But know since the state has step in their trying to make the state think that its all perfect. No its not perfect,its too late for that now!

I think Rosa Fort is an outstanding school though everyone has their own opinions. Two major faults I did see in the school though is the lack of spirit and the amount of activities. I think if the students had a change in scenery it would be much better but overall the students and teachers and staff are outstanding. Kind of makes me wish I was still going there.

I think Rosa Fort offers great educational skills to students who need them. It is great and it offers one of the best learning enviroment there is.

I think Rosa Fort is a great school. Every school is not perfect, but Rosa Fort is very close to it. I graduated from Rosa Fort in 2002, and I had a great time mentally and physically.
