I have several children who have and are still attending Holy Rosary School. They have all had the same teachers and each child was and has been treated as an individual. No comments like "your borther did this or your sister did that" the children who need the extra help or pat on the back got it and the ones who need the firm talk got it. Thank you

Holy Rosary School.....good school....good people. Don't change, never had an issue with any teacher or staff member. My child has done well there and I am sure he will continue to do well.

As a working parent I find Holy rosary School meets a lot of my needs. Early drop off, breakfast program, lunch program, after school with homework help, email alerts and reminders. I wish I could be more involved with the school my daughters both love it.

I can't believe this school year will be over in a few weeks. My child has been at Holy Rosary since 1st grade she is now in 4th and is doing great. This year has been a little harder but once again the teachers have been supportive. Looking forward to another successful year.

This school was a great school at one time. Now it is bad, really bad. My suggestion is to research the school, speak to parents ( and I don't mean the ones that hang around the school during the school day). The classes are overcrowded and the teaching style is very uncreative and old fashion for this day and age. my child is not returning. By the way, take the rating with a grain of salt, I wrote a detailed negative review and it was removed. I noticed a few other negative reviews were removed.

Holy Rosary is a great school. My boys have been students in the this school since 4th grade and Pre-K. The teachers as well as Adminitration have help my sons and are excellent and treat the children like members of their own family. We are members of the Home School Association which is part of Parent and Teacher dedication for the students. They also has after school activities as well as sports. We are so grateful and enjoy being part of Holy Rosary. God bless you.

The school was great and always stayed on top of me, especially when I didn't complete my work. As to Sister Mary's niece, the nuns on the top floor were kind and helped teach the students respect. Nobody was mistreated, even though some other students would call the teachers mean. Those students will grow up to be successful and prosperous.

I am very disappointed in some of the comments on this page. My daughter started this school in pre-k 4 years ago. She never had any incidence with any of the teachers. There is one child within her group that has been a trouble maker and he is still a trouble maker. I approached the father and he pretty much dismissed me. I believe children who are disruptive should be permanently expelled from the school. I read the review from a parent of the ECP program. To give a school a negative grade because your child was doing better in another school. It is best for you to remove your child. If your child was not doing anything wrong he/she would not have to be worried about getting into trouble. Last week an ECP child spat on another student belongings. When I spoke with him he ran. He was jumping into the rain water and kicking the cone in the court yard I told him to stop. I find that quite a few ECP students are disruptive and the teacher, the staff or the school should not be penalized for it. Parents cannot expect the teacher to discipline their children. It is the parents responsibility to discipline their children. Do not knock Holy Rosary until you tried it for yourself.

I was in Holy Rosary School from Pre-K to 8th grade. Few reviews here are correct when they say that some teachers are horrible, but some teachers are only bad if the students are as well. The only teacher that was here that was a horrible person was here in my last year of school. She was a teacher for 2nd grade to replace the one that left. I left the school so I don't know where she is, but you'd better put your hopes that she was fired. I'm not giving any names, but she cursed at the kids in after school, pushed a kid into a bench when he wouldn't cooperate, and yelled at everyone. Lots of teachers have there "favorites" in the classroom, but she hated every single student in this school. Don't stop your looking here, she was most likely fired and maybe arrested. Anyway the next thing is that the kids in a near school, M.S. 144, H-A-T-E Holy Rosary. They tormented 7th and 8th graders and broke a glass at holy rosary. Luckily, the principal reasoned with the principal at 144. So basically, everything that could go wrong at HR happened and has been resolved. I recommend Cardinal Spellman for high school, affordable and c-o-ed. :) So long reader!

Very great school. All my children go there. The teachers are excellent and treat the children like members of their own family. That is the way it should be because we (most parents and most of the teachers) are members of the Catholic Family. The Family that has civilized the world and continue to do great things for the world that loves to hate us Catholic. God bless you.

Some teachers are really good and help your kids while others are simply horrible. Will not be sending my preschooler to this school.

Grading here is crazy, you can have an 85 in classwork, homework and notebook but if you do badly on ONE test it can bring your grade all the way down to a 70-75 and barely passing the class. Test should factor a lot into the grade but shouldn't render the other work basically invalid. If your kid has an off day or forgets to study for one test they could likely fail that subject for that quarter. Makes no sense. And that info is verifiable.

Our daughter attended this school and it was awful! The rapid decline in her personaltiy was shocking in so little time. For the first time she was unenthusiastic about going to school. The Pre-K program has a 'one curriculum for all,' system which is insane considering kids at that age have different levels of learning. The Pre-K teacher our daughter had was preoccupied with 'labeling' and almost every day we got notes home about behavior. Our daughter's now enrolled in a Prep school and she loves it! The teachers adore her and we've had no notes or complaints about behavior. Turns out she was bored in Holy Rosary. Save money & time. If you want a progressive education for your kid - Holy Rosary is not up to par! It did not meet our expectations at all!

This school is the worst catholic school in the bronx. They do not repsect you as a working parent and not to mention the classrooms are over crowded. And all they care about is getting money from you with all the hidden fee's. The administration is full of old women who do not respect the parents who call to inquire about there child and there well begin. There are too many students and they do not have enought staff. MONEY< MONEY< MONEY. Very poor school academically and administration.

I have graduated from this school a mere two years ago, and I am glad I left. Holy Rosary lacks the passion and understanding needed in helping their students rise. And though there are one or two good things about this school it would be wise to look closely at your childs teachers. Often they judge unfairly, wither it's because of grades or etc. I myself was a victim of this and wish all arrving students the best of luck surviving theses years.

I was very disappointed with Holy Rosary School. Some of the teachers lack compassion and understanding. Yet they want to teach this to the children. They should lead by example.

I am a current student at this school and started attending this school at Pre-k. I am now in 8th grade. This school doesn't prepare you with an excellent math curriculum to prepare you for the Bronx High School test.

Holy Rosary is a great school. If you want a school with good structure/discipline, this is where your child needs to be. If you are a parent who does not admit that you have a child who can't stay still, and expect the school to keep your child, Holy Rosary will not be the school for you. Very strict, and as a parent, I love that. I have two kids who attend the school now, one in pre-k and the other in 1st grade. I get a note from the pre-k teacher at least twice a week, for obvious reasons. I won't give up, bc its for the best! Teachers are very helpful and always care to communicate with the parents. Parents are definitely involved in what goes on in the school. Looking for good education, Holy Rosary is the place to be.

I once called this place my school. Even though the education prepared me only somewhat for High School, it prepared me more for interactions with adults. The classrooms sizes were huge, but supporting staff made up for that. The extracarricular activites were few, and I wish there had been more. The music program was no where up to par...at all. The computer program though, was excellent and taught me many things that I still use today. Overall I would give it a 3.5-4 out of 5 during my last year there.

Holy rosary is good at providing a safe environment for your children, but can be a bit too rigid at times. The school's greateset asset is it's teachers, they are great. The biggest downfall is that holy rosary administrative staff does not communicate with parents effectively. They do not send home notices regaurding school tuition increases and you don't find out until you receive the bill.

Academics are not a worry for your child in this school. Teachers are very helpful if your child needs any extra help.There are many activities for your child. There is a weekly basis of music, art, computer science, and more. The school also offers other afterschool programs such as basketball, cheerleading,softball,and other various sports. Parents are involed often in the school year.Parents can voleenteer for many school activities such as, school parties and school events.There are also meetngs for parents if they would like to go to inform parent about promblems in the school or important topics that need to be discussed.Parent will be informed if your child is having trouble in any academic subjects or for any matter as well.I hope my review helps you understand this school better.Chose Holy Rosary School if you want your child to have a good school year!
