Very unhappy with education. School enrollment has dropped drastically. Not worth the money. I do not believe Holy Rosary will last another 4 years. I have been with school since 2001 and it is not the same. Very sad

Ann Major is an asset to the school. Can't beat the value of a Catholic education. Lessons learned will last for life. Worth every penny!

My children attend Holy Rosary... They love it, pure and simple! I am very happy with the new principal and school administration... I can already see things turning for the better, starting with Mrs Fusic the new K teacher who is truly wonderful. Keep up the great work

I would not recommend this school. Academically it is inferior to many area schools. The children are given little exposure to current technology and many of their educational experiences are limited. Although the principal is a lovely person , the school does not challenge the students to excel academically or use higher level thinking skills. If you are looking for a well-balanced ,superior education this IS NOT the school for you. Many parents in recent years have removed their children from this school after becoming increasingly unhappy with the education their children received there.

Mr. Kuberski and the teachers are EXCEPTIONAL!! The teachers work very hard to help every child try their best and to excel in their schoolwork. The school motto is "working together to make a difference" and the teachers and the principal encourage the kids to do so. The teachers are very warm hearted to new students and make your child feel very welcomed. This school has an excellent staff and a challenging academic curriculum. My children are excelling and are very happy!

Under new leadership Holy Rosary is really shining. The principal with the support of the pastor has made great improvements in the school building and is very active in the curriculum. Great new programs and true dedication to each and every students well being is evident in all they do.

After much debate on whether to send my daughter to private or public school, my husband and I decided to go with Holy Rosary. Mr. Kuberski is a very hands on principal, he knows all his students names and is always greeting them with a smile in the mornings. The staff and teachers are also very nice and helpful. This school is very family orientated and close knit. I highly recommend this school.

Holy Rosary is a wonderful school. My older son attends there now for the past few years and my younger son is now in the pre-k and will enter the "big" school next year. The academics are really good, and the scores in their testing shows that. The school is like an extended family. Mr. Kurberski is a wonderful asset to Holy Rosary, he knows all the children by name, and all the students love him, as well as the rest of the staff. The teachers are also wonderful. I almost moved my son to a neighboring school 2 years ago, and I am so glad that I didn't!

Holy Rosary was always a great school academically. Now that we have a new principal this school will fly off the charts. He is Holy Rosary's former third grade teacher. He showed kindness and respect to all the children and parents and was creative in his teachings. His class always looked forward to going to school. As a Principal and teacher he is in a class all his own. Best wishes Mr. Kuberski on your first year as Principal!

My daughter has been attending Holy Rosary for many years. The teachers are great, the office staff is helpful. The Principal has an attitude that makes me uncomfortable to talk with her. She demostrates her dislikes to me. She pick's the phone to tell you to call back when someone is here to help you. Never does she go out of her way to try and help. Never seems concered about me and parents issues that effect the school. She has instruct the children to smile when her meet another, but either Mrs. Murphy does not set a example of such. It's rear that I see her smiling with the children. There are 180 school days per year but the school has over 30 half days which lacks approx. 15 full days of school a year. This is unfair to our child. I think the school needs a

Holy Rosary School is a school filled with excellent teaching and above all each child is treated as their own. This school is truly God's 'Love' . The Principal is wonderful and caring. We love this school so much, we wish it was till 12th grade :)

This was my first experience with Holy Rosary School. My daughter attended Pre-K, and was placed in Mrs. Luciano's class. She loved every school day, and learned so much. Mrs. Luciano, and her assistant Ms. Irene are two extraordinary people. They treat the children and their parents like family. My daughter has been blessed by having them to introduce her to the school environment. I myself have been an educator for over 25 years, and I am most pleased to see all that is going on in The Holy Rosary School.

This is the second year that my daughter attends Holy Rosary School. The academic programs are: challenging and age appropriate. The school emphasis is on excellence with solid Christian teachings based . The music program has resumed for the 06-07 school year, along with many extracurricular activities. The school has added a Morning Care Program and After School Program, both for working parents. Parent involvement is very strong, however Volunteer participation levels need improvement for the much needed Fundraiser. Due to low volunteer levels and continued increase in operational costs, the school has enacted Mandatory Fundraising Fees along with Mandatory Church Support Fees. Unfortunately, tuition cost has also increased due to rising costs of faculty benefits and union contracts. The faculty and administration staff is exceptional. Overall: A top notch education with top notch educators!

This is my family's first year at Holy Rosary and I can tell you that this school has been by far the best for my 3 kids. My children are being challenged academically,the school's constant demand for excellence is presented in my children's grades and daily activities.They have a wonderful family-like atmosphere :their science lab and math lab motivate and enable my children to gain a better understanding of the subjects being presented . Their Pre-K program has enabled my daughter to gain many of the basic skills she will need for the transition to Kindergarden and elementary school.Holy Rosary is very involved with the community providing many different activities like Music,Drama Club,Basketball, school sponsored events which encourage the parents and friends to become involved. If you want your children to learn leadership,brotherhood and consitency ,then this school is the place for you.

My twins have been attending Holy Rosary since pre-k and I am very satisfied with the teachers and academic programs. I was disappointed that their music class was cancelled, but hopefully that will be brought back soon. My children do very well and I am glad that they have five more years left. The principals are always available and willing to help in any situation. They make a point of getting to know each and every child that attends the school. They are great. P.S. The yearly father/daughter dance is wonderful!
