The chidren seem to build better characters and have a firm sense of what learning is all about. It is dedicated to that , while keeping the base of Relgion,which is really the foundation of our Country , present. They strive to teach the children the meaning of 'love thy neighbor' while giving them a top notch education. All of this preparing them to well qualify for any top high school they may want to attend.

Both my children are in their third year in school. They are very well school and are very advanced as compared to the kids in my public school district. A very good school, they teach manners and public service as well.

I did not enjoy this school at all. I had enrolled my child in it for a brief time, and he hated it. The teachers, he said, were very mean to him

We attend St. Rose of Lima School and are extremely pleased. The children love the teachers, which to me says a lot, and the teachers are happy to be there with the children. There are countless extracurricular activities for the children. The school makes sure to have plenty of family events as well throughout the year as to give the school that 'family feeling' and it works. The school is also very up to date with computers and the things they offer. The school offers all the honor courses that are available and we could not be happier to have our children at a school that is caring, loving and concerned with our children and their education and their overall well-being--not to mention the strong religious foundation of becoming a good person.

This is our first year at st. Rose and my husband and I are very impressed. You can tell the principal demands respect from teachers and students, and he gets it. The St. Rose community of parents is very strong. The parents and students are so active in every aspect of education, fundraising and social activities. We have the choice of good public schools, but choose the caring but challenging enviroment of st. Rose of lima.

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.
