My child received an excellent education at Rossi Intermediate School. The teachers are great. The school provides orientation and other programs for 6th graders to help them adjust to middle school. My child received an excellent education at Rossi Intermediate School. There are very few fights or behavior problems.

To start off, I believe everyone should know Anthony Rossi Middle School is for grades 6-8. Since every year the school gets a new group of 6th graders they have to prepair a Rossi Retreat, Orientation, and an assembly to introduce all the teachers. I believe Rossi does an outstanding job every year with these things including all of the help they give to students. For the first few days of school, Rossi has all the teachers stand outside their classes and give students that are lost help. The teachers just don't stand out during the morning, but every time the bell rings for the 6th graders to get moving the teachers are there helping. I believe Rossi school puts lots of thoughts into how things should go and if they will move smoothly or not.

Rossi is a great school, mainly based on staff. I would have to say that the finest teacher that I have had, was Mrs.Hess. She has to be the greatest teacher in all of Vineland. Her desire is not to just teach, but to make sure that her students strongly comprehend the particular topic. Which most other teachers would ignore. She has helped me a lot in my growth as a student and a person.

I like this school but I really think that the children need recess time.Silent reading is sooooooo overated.Also, I think that the students need a decent field trip.


Posted January 16, 2008

My child is fortunate enough to have had 7 years of teachers that care and enjoy their job. This year is no different than the years past. With a team like Mr. Suppi, Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Iulg, Mr. Ebinger, Ms. Klein, Mr. Hughs and Mrs. Super my child is certain to excell in all areas of academics. Thank you so much for a job well done.

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.
