St Rose Of Lima School 1

My kids attended this school since kindergarten. The reason I kept them in this school is because Is close to where we live and my kids can walk there. This school was great when my kids started, but than a new Principal was hired and everything changed. The principal Lacks professionalism and teachers have been in and out of that School. Students talk about how their teacher curse in the classroom. Teachers are now texting when they're suppose to be teaching. Students are being challenged less because of the lack of class work and homework they receive. Not enough Information is being introduced to put children.

I am currently enrolled in St. Rose of Lima and I don't like my school. The school lacks in extracurricular activities and the school doesn't challenge you. It's not a bad school, but it's not an excellent one either.

Great School & Teachers! My daughter was in Pre K 3 last year and everyone has notice tremendously how much she has learned in only a year(Thank you Ms. Betty and Ms. Yolanda!). I love how they motivate and challenge our little ones. Even though most might think Pre k might not be all that challenging, it s curriculum is very structured yet nurturing and is paving the way for her to excel if the future. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone.

There is so much to say about St. Rose of Lima School, I am utterly blessed being able to be apart of the school's memory. I've attended the school since Pre-K and graduated on June 13, 2008 and I can tell you there is no place like St. Rose that is my second home where I grew up to become who I am today the teachers show their effort and determination in making students understand things in a better prespective. In St. Rose I became wiser and now I make better decesions, if there is any school parents want to send their child too it should be St. Rose, and i want to thank Mr. & Mrs. Lopez, Ms.Lopez, Mrs. Grant, Ms. Diaz, Mrs. Kwan, Mr. Cynthia, Ms. Joyce, ms. Spinks, Mr. Majeed, as well as Mr. Alvarez for all their hardwork God Bless.

Being in this school for so long since Pre-K, I saw all the changes it has undergone. At one point I disliked St.Rose a lot but there were many reason to love it like my friends and teachers. I gained a lot of friends in St.Rose and I'm glad to graduate with all of them. They have become like family to me. I love them dearly and I don't know how I'm going to deal next year being without them. I love all of my teachers. All of my teachers put a lot of effort to teach the students. The school has made me what I am and I'm glad to graduate from a school like St.Rose of Lima. I will miss the school a lot. To all my classmates: I love you all and never forget the times we had in St.Rose of Lima together. -A.C. Class of 2009

I feel that St. Rose of Lima School is a much better place this year than it has been in the last ten years. The students are happy and motivated to do well. The teachers are happy and are a pleasure to work with. I am delighted that my child is having a wonderful year. She comes home happy and smiling every night. I would not change the new prinicpal for anything else in the world. She is the best!

So many parents want the former principal back. This new one is nasty to parents, students don't like her and the teachers don't look happy

I can't say that there has been a lot of consistancy in the school. Sadly, the old principal of St. Rose retired, bring in the new principal whom has confused and disapointed the vast majority of us. Teachers range from apathetic to astounding, depending on the person you're talking about. The upper grades this year are doing far better than they ever have, with three teachers in place who actually teach--challenging the students, as opposed to simply passing them as many of the other teachers in the school do. I'm happy in some ways I've kept my child there. The teachers she has are doing their best--and my child is happy with them.
