Rosemont is a public school with a great reputation, a diverse population of kids, and teachers willing to explore cool opportunities like the ability to teach important skills and knowledge using environmental education at the Twelve Hills Nature Center.

In response to the poster below, actually almost 90% of the Rosemeont Primary students are Hispanic not Caucasian as she claims below. As she says, that shouldn't matter to the teachers and staff, but I wanted to correct her error.

Wow! Rosemont has done so much for my children. My kindergartener was reading, really reading, by December. The parent involvement is amazing. The administration is responsive to needs of parents and students. The teachers are dedicated beyond belief by spending their own time and money teaching our children. Thank you, Rosemont, for being a standout neighborhood elementary school within DISD-a district that is becoming one of magnets and specialty schools.

My children and I are very happy at Rosemont. At our other school, we were so unhappy that it was a constant battle just to make them go to school. Now they love it so much they have perfect attendance. There are always flyers being sent home about some extra-curriculum activity or another plus various field trips/school events. Not only am I involved but I want to be involved. I have no shortage of suggestions of activities for my kids. Plus due to the hard work and attention of the teachers, my kids grades and scores are high. Principal is friendly and approachable.

It is a good school. My daughter studies in Rosemont and her teacher encourage her to read a lot plus they take children to theaters, museums, the zoo and some other places to make more interesting to learn.

When my daughter started attending rosemont her reading level was very low. But now she has been attending rosemont for more than 2 years and she was able to pass her reading task test. She also has adhd and all of rosemonts staff has helped me with my daughters behavior problem including the principal she is a great principal. If parents would put their 50% by helping their kids at home and encourage kids to read more maybe they wont blame the teachers and principals.

I am very pleased with Rosemont. My son has gone the last 3 years. I am impressed with the teachers and their desire to really help the kids achieve. There is plenty of extra curricular activities as well.

To all interested parents: Rosemont is a strong urban elementary school characterized by dedicated teachers; a tireless, involved administration; and ever-increasing participation by the ENTIRE Kessler/Winnetka/North Oak Cliff community. Check it out! (Now where are those yard signs so I can brag that my child is at ROSEMONT?)

We voted with our feet, pulled our kid out and moved on to a better environment. Many of the classroom teachers are good, but they have no leadership, so the education ends up haphazard- maybe you get it, and maybe you don't. If you have a choice, go elsewhere. If not, get involved and make the best of it.


Posted August 4, 2007

DISD settles for mediocre when it comes to administration. The principal knows much about self promotion and little about true education. The mantra around Rosemont is 'if we get rid of her, we might get somebody worse.' Thank goodness for the dedicated teachers who work through the low morale to educate children. Keep it up, someday a decent educator will again be in charge.

Congratulations on becoming a recognized campus! The teachers and staff proved they can go the extra mile. When everyone works together all children succeed!

Rosemont is riding on its reputation from the 80s and 90s, but it's not the same school anymore. The campus is split in two. The principal of the lower school, Claudia M, puts her own political agenda over the kids education. The school has many special programs with high paid teachers who don't teach. Instead of teaching the kids, the faculty is forced to teach the test.
—Submitted by a staff


Posted June 14, 2006

My children have attended Rosemont for years and I am saddened by the decline in academics and discipline in the last few years. There is absolutely no structure or consistency due to lack of leadership. We were happy to hear we will get a new principal this year on the lower campus, but the upper campus will still suffer from the low teacher morale and complete lack of a discipline policy. Just because we are an inner city public school, I refuse to accept mediocrity and the prevailing attitude at the school of 'it could be worse.' The apathy is as troubling as the poor leadership. After years of being an advocate for the school, I can no longer recommend Rosemont to anyone who has a choice.

I have put one child thru and have two more still attending Rosemont Elementary. I have had a great experience there and so have my children. This school still feels like the old neighborhood schools of the 50's. There is alot of parent involvement and I really like that. I feel that my children have received a well rounded education at Rosemont.

Overall we have enjoyed our 4 years at Rosemont, although we have had a hit and miss experience with teachers. Two of our years we've had absolutely outstanding teachers. The TAG program is not strong enough. Good arts programs. Good afterschool programs.

great school, my child attended for 3 years. The teachers are outstanding.

Rosemont is a great neighborhood school. There is a lot of diversity and parent support. Academically it works well for most of the students. However, students with learning differences do not get the support they need. My children did enjoy attending there.
