Rosedale Christian School (Academy) What a beautiful school? My child is a student in the Rosedale Christian School/Academy. I am pleased so far with her academics strides. The McGraw Hill curriculum is just what the doctor ordered! This curriculum meets the Common Core standard and above which helps my child to excel. My child is coming from the Public School and boy am I glad I moved her? She was getting a 1 on the State exams and now she is a upper 3! Communication is very good at this school but academics is NUMBER 1!!! For most part, staff and faculty is very respectful and I am happy with that. Technology is advancing there also and the teachers are very good. I would recommend parents to this school. Signed: A happy parent

This school is a really good environment for children. I have been going to the school for eight years and those eight years have been really good for me. I have made many great friends over the years that I hope to keep for a lifetime. The teachers always try the of best of their ability to help us. They are always there for the students when we have personal problems that we would like to talk about. I'm an 8th grader at the school so this is my last year there. My teachers are always saying everything that we are doing that day is preparing us for high school, and that we will be very prepared when we graduate. They are absolutely right about that. When I graduate this coming June, it will be a very bitter-sweet time. I will be excited to be going on to high school, but I will really miss going to this school.

I have had a wonderful school years in this school . I left when I was pre-school then went to public school they didn t teach much as this school did, then it made me come back to school to improve my grades .I felt hurt when I saw the comments students/people said about this school and the staff and you should come see for yourself to see this wonderful school.

This is a great school for your child. At a early age the can learn a lot of things. I'm a student of the school and everyday is an amazing day there. The staff and teachers are amazing. Some of the comments are really bad and I'm really upset that some people would actually say that about the school. If you want your child to get a good eduacation, then send your child here because it can be a great experience for them.

I have read ALL of these postings and I would really like a faculty member to shed some light on the school. I currently have my child enrolled in a nursery/dayschool and I feel the same way some of these parents feel. Bitter sweet about some of the things that has transpired of the past 2.5 years my child HOWEVER I would never bash or speak poorly of the school and still keep my child there for the past 2.5 years. The school and its faculty has issues like most places but overall the school, atmosphere, educational activities etc is excellent. Unfortunately the school does not go past a certain grade and I would rather not start my child at one place and then have to transfer into a new school & environment down the road. St. Clare's was recommended to me by a parent who of the school because she lived in the neighborhood years ago but she doesn't have first hand experience with the school because she moved before her children were of age to attend. SO if a faculty member, past or present, can be objective about this school and their personal opinion/views of the school as a whole I think other parents like myself would appreciate hearing it straight from someone who works there.

I am highly involved in my son's education and believe that St. Clares was/is a GREAT investment. I like the fact that most of the teachers have been with the school for years; some even attended the school as children themselves. I think that the principal, like any person starting something new, was given a hard time in the beginning. I strongly feel as though the parents shoud take a more active roll in their child's education and or school life. There is so much that can be done, if we all worked together. It is our responsibility as parents, to ensure that our children are safe, competitive, and engaged. I participate in everything that occurs and know many teachers, staff, and children at St. Clare's. It's a great and positive foundation for any child. They have many activities for the children, now more so than ever before. I am pleased and more than happy with Mrs. Basile, her staff, the school, students, and Parish.

Whoever wrote a comment on Setember 22 must not be involved in the school much. You do not seem to have your facts in order. The two new teachers ( out of 13) may be new to the school but have years of experience. Since Mrs. Basile has been here scores have gone up and programs have been created. Go to a home school meeting and you would know this. It's a wonder why a person would go onlineto speak so badly about a school that has such a great reputation. This is shameful. As a parent I am proud of this school. I selected this school for the leadership, education and environment. I support this school to the fulliest and it is a shame you are not doing the same.

I have been involved with this school for over 17yrs. It is going down hill with the hiring of Mrs. Basile as the principal. The teachers are new for the most part & have no clue what they are doing. As soon as possible I will be removing my kid.

I am a current student at this school. when i first started here about 7 years ago the former principle mrs.finley was caring, was involved, and treated us like her own children. Until a few years ago mrs. Basile replaced her. The behavior of the school became out of hand. All of a sudden there were only one class per grade with 30+ students, with this loosing recess, having silent lunch. At this school there we have no field trips, no science fairs, short gym classes (b/c) of student behavior, no student council, no student leadership, and horrible school lunches. I dont like the fact that the is no student-teacher respect and our principle gives alot of promises but never acts on them. Im really sad because i used to love going to school, now im bored and disappointed!! May God help us all at this school...

I am very disappointed with what is going on in St Clare. My child have been going there for almost 8 years and the quality of teaching is very poor after 4th grade. My child is in 6th grade and the maths and english that they are doing is ridiculous (these are there core subjects). Are they really preparing these kids for the years ahead? There is no preparation for the 6th grade state test so make sure you get extra help for your child. Come on Mrs. Basile, take a look at what your teachers are doing and improve the quality of teaching at St. Clare. If not, parents are going to get frustrated and take their children out.

My child just started at St. Clare School and she loves it! I love it! The principal, Mrs Basile works hard to keep her students smiling. There is a morning program and after school program. The school has a gym, library, cafeteria, and science lab. There is also activities in the evening such as a band and basketball program. The atmosphere is warm and the teachers and office staff are great.

I love St. Clare School. The teachers are nice and are always there for us. The principal started a drama club and we performed two shows already. I feel that I am prepared to go to high school nest year. I will miss St. Clare School.

St. Clare really needs a lot of help. The school has recess in a parking lot. It's a private school that gains lots of money from it's tuition. The school is really small, the school lunch is horrendous. Gym time is 1 day and is only 30-45 minutes around that time. That is not enough time for children to be fit. There are a lot of kids that are obese. I could go on and on about this school's problems. Do not send your child to this school.

I am a student that attends St.Clare School, and I would like to say that over the years saint clare has been falling apart with mrs. basile as the principal. I would like to inform parents that they should reconsider having their child attend that school. I have been in that school for 5 years while mrs basile has been principle for 3 years. Saint clare needs to have a new principal in order to gain control.

I do not like this school. This school has the worst cirriculum and worst yet the staff is not very welcoming. I have been going to this school and there has always been something negative about this school. It was very good when we had our former principal Mrs. Finley, but when Mrs. Basile came everthing went down hill. I have been going here for 4 going on 5 years and I can tell you from experience that Saint Clare is not a very proffesional school.

I was a student at St.Clares five years ago and it is a great place for a child to grow and develop relationships with students that will last a life time. There staff is very kind, helpful, and knowledgeable. I now attend Molloy college on a full basketball scholarship and have a 3.2 gpa they prepares students well.

My daughter has been attending St. Clare since Pre-K and has obtained a solid foundation and is very, very comfortable with both the teachers and the students. The new principal Mrs. Basile is a wonderful, vibrant addition to the school. I feel like the teachers care and appreciate the new safety measures the school implemented.

I have two children who attended St. Clare School. One graduated and now attends St. Johns University. Not only have they made him into a great student, they help mold his character into a fine young man. My youngest son now attends St. Clares and I see the same great characteristics being molded into him. Their staff is very dedicated to helping kids attain their goals. Ms Finley as principal is the best and helped my sister's son through some really tough personal times. THREE BIG CHEERS FOR ST. CLARES!!!!

I may not be a parent but I am a student. The school is good, and is not very large. The smiles are constant, and to me is a very good enviroment to be around. As an 8th grade I know really whats the up's and downs of the schools. There is always going to be a teacher you call'MEAN', but they want the best for you. Also, if youir child attends you may think they are going a little slow espiclally when you get into the junior high side of the school. But as i said its all for the better, they just want your child to understand the basics of what they are learing. ~ 8th Grade Student Class of 05 (Whats Really Hood)
