My child will be going into the 2nd grade this August at Rosemont and she has been very happy for the last 2yrs. The staff teachers and Principal are very caring. They have a great after-school program which is extremely helpful for working parents. Looking forward to another great year at Rosemont Elementary!!!

Lots of great extracurricular options; good teachers at almost every grade level if you get involved. Active PTA.

Rosemont is an excellent school. We are so fortunate to have such an outstanding school in our neighborhood. The teachers and parents partner to ensure each child's academic success. Additionally, the Fine Arts and Sports programs are incredible.

I had the privilege to manage the construction at Rosemont Elementary last summer and would like to share my experience at Rosemont with others. The construction and the scheduled completion date were extremely difficult to achieve but the entire staff at Rosemont treated my team like family and rolled out the red carpet in assisting us during the construction phase. I particularly noticed the attention the Rosemont staff paid in instilling good behavior and manners in the children. With the large number of children at Rosemont the classrooms were always under control, there was no graffiti on walls, and the children were terrific when going to recess, lunch or different classes. The greatest thing that I observed was a level of caring and love for the students with special needs from the staff as well as the other students. That alone should set the standard for all of DISD. -Construction.

We cannot say enough positive things about Rosemont! We have been amazed at all of the opportunities this school offers its students. The teachers we ve worked with have been top-notch and the principal, Anna Brining, is an outstanding leader with extraordinary vision. She is supportive, hands-on and knowledgeable. She knows most kids by name and always takes the time to discuss whatever is important. I have never been to the school without seeing her in action doing whatever she can to improve the school even more. The level of parent involvement is also impressive. Rosemont is an excellent, multicultural environment for any child.

Rosemont has great potential and serious problems. Two words describe the principal: unorganized and self centered. The library is not checking out books and the computer center is not functional. In October! But, ask her, she'll say Rosemont is the best school in the district. Educators all over the country know the reputation of DISD. This is just another example of DISD protecting bad administrators.

This is a great website. I've had no place to voice my frustration and concern. It's so good to see someone speaking out about this principal. She talks about learning, but pushes faculty to teach the state test. Weak leadership has meant no underlying vision of why we educate or what should be taught. There is no unifying theme to connect various subject matters. No historic sense to connect past, present and future-- Just an endless stream of the next curriculum that will fix everything and high-profile but 'empty' special programs, arts, dance, etc. And, of course, 'we're the best' speeches. In reality, bright students are not properly challenged, and challenged students do not develop fundamental skills. It's a sad state for an old school with strong tradition. My kids have moved on. We're happy in our new home, but worried for our old one.

Rosemont Elementary has been a great school for my children. It provides a challenging academic curriculum in a diverse and supporting environment. Most of the teachers are outstanding and when I have had concerns they were addressed promptly. The principal is always willing to listen and is supportive of the community.

My kid goes to Rosemont. Ms. Br***** is the principal. She has a big ego. She does not send troublemaker kids to special schools, she keeps them at Rosemont. Even the bad ones. She does not support her ass't principal. She allows tons of 'pet' kids from outside of DISD to go to the school.

The only thing that holds this school back, is the catering by the staff and faculty, to the kids in the 'in-crowd'. The parents are very clique-ish and this attitude carries over to the faculty and student body. The principal has her hands full with all the PTA politics and actually handles it quite well. Unfortuately, prejudices abound here, and I am not talking about racial tension, it is more an obsession with the 'cool-factor'. I think the faculty is just reflecting the type of expectations they are getting from the parents.

I have a child entering 2nd grade and one entering Kinder this year. I love Rosemont and couldn't have hoped for a better public school experience. While annoyed by PTA politics and sometimes feeling excluded due to my career choices (10 hour days limit my availability to volunteer), I have been nothing but pleased with the teachers and the attention my child has received. The extracurricular activities and the level of academic expectation are outstanding. My husband has not been happy with the amount of homework, which he feels is too much for the age group, but I feel it is good preparation for future requirements. When we moved to the area we'd been seriously shopping for private schools, but at the urging of a neighbor decided to check out Rosemont, and we haven't regretted it.

Wow I really enjoyed my time at Rosemont. I graduated from there in the 01-02 school yaer. This is an outstanding school. Caitlin
