Things to consider before enrolling your child: Facilities are in need of updating. Athletics, foreign language (Spanish), and fine arts programs are very weak. Two of the three school buildings are very run down. Administration and teachers do not address parents' and students' concerns satisfactorily. They expect students to display good manners, but they do not provide a good example for them. Things I like about the school: Catholic education, tuition is lower than other parochial schools closer to Houston, classroom size is small. Holy Rosary could improve by: Hiring new, professional, qualified faculty and staff that are not associated with the community and have no conflicts of interest. Updating their facilities, technology, and non-academic programs.

My two children attend Holy Rosary and we have been so pleased with the teachers, principal, and staff. The teachers are willing to get to know your child and go above and beyond for each child. The faculty is well trained and the students come out so prepared for high school. The small environment is a plus and the children have so many opportunities to serve others. I have been so pleased that my children's faith has blossomed and that they are surrounded by our faith and values every day.

I am proud to be teaching at Holy Rosary Catholic School. My children attended the school from Kinder through 8th grade and went on to be successful in High School, College and in their careers. Holy Rosary educates the whole child, mind body and spirit. I truly believe that the majority of students who attend and who have attended Holy Rosary School have had an enjoyable experience and are well prepared for their future endeavors. Building faith and shaping minds is what Holy Rosary Catholic School is all about!

My brother went to Holy Rosary school for his fifth grade year. My parents thought that by putting him in that school, it would keep him more in line and get a better education. It turns out that that didn't help whatsoever. At Holy Rosary, my brother was bullied by not only the students, but also the teacher. They are not hospitable at all. After barely three months of having to deal with going to that school, my parents finally transferred him back to his old school, which was a way better choice. With Holy Rosary, you either have to have been there since pre-k, or be friends with somebody who has, to be accepted. If you're looking for a good Catholic school, I'd go with St. Laurence. They actually treat newcomers as one of their own and don't make them feel weird about being a "new kid". At the end of the day, Holy Rosary is just not a good place to send your kid.

Withdrew my two children. Inappropriate activities occurring in class rooms and administration doing nothing about it.

My children have attended Holy Rosary since 2008 and after reading the poor reviews listed, it's apparent that those families have not been back to see the positive changes that the school has made. The teachers are outstanding. Our 7th grader qualified with her Iowa test scores to take the SAT!! Extra help is available for students that do not learn as fast as others. One of the teachers was named one of the top educators in the County by the Fort Bend Herald. The students that come out of this school after 8th grade are very far ahead of where public school students are. You would be hard pressed to find a teacher in any LCISD public high school that would say otherwise. The theatre arts program is outstanding and allows students to participate in productions throughout the year. HRCS is the only west Fort Bend County school that offers competitive Jr. High soccer. The HRCS soccer team made the GHCAA playoffs in 2012. The principal loves the school and the students and is very approachable. If you want your children to have a solid christian foundation and an excellent academic start to High School I would highly recommend that you check out what Holy Rosary now offers.

Holy Rosary offers students an amazing academic and spiritual foundation that you will not find in any public school setting! When the youngest of my 4 children graduates from HRCS I can proudly say I will have had 21 years of experience as a room parent and prior to that I taught 2 years at HRCS and 5 years in public school. I realized HRCS offered something unique when I walked through the doors my first day of teaching and after my first year as a teacher I knew my own children would attend HRCS! That decision was made 23 years ago and with no regrets! Years later the decision was validated when my oldest children entered public high school. Many teachers commented how they loved HRCS students in their classroom because they were well prepared, worked hard, were disciplined students, and were not afraid to participate in class. The school provides a solid academic foundation without the stress of teaching to any test , study skill opportunities, great work ethics, leadership skills, and athletic opportunities all while supporting the Catholic values and morals most Catholic families try to teach at home! HRCS is a wonderful gem in our community!

Howdy! I am a 2005 graduate of Holy Rosary and I am extremely proud to say so. I attended HRCS for 8 years, from Kinder to 8th grade and I believe it is the reason I have been successful through high school and college. The teachers are outstanding and the curriculum puts you well above a high school level upon graduation from HRCS. I graduated in the top 11% of my high school and I am about to graduate from Texas A&M University. I was overly prepared for high school academically, and wonderfully prepared for life as a young Catholic. I would suggest this school to anyone who asked and I cannot wait to return with my children one day!

I graduated from Holy Rosary in 2002 after attending HRCS for 10 years. I am incredibly thankful to my parents for giving me the opportunity to attend HRCS. I was able to receive more one- on-one time in class, participate in several sports, have a leadership position in Student Council, sing in choir, and so much more. I did all of this while forming life long friendships with other students who shared the same moral values and beliefs as I did. We were able to learn more about our faith, grow in our faith, and share our faith. After HRCS, I attended High School and graduated 7th in my class from a 4A High School. My High School teachers always told me that they love HRCS students because they are so well behaved and are usually ahead academically. HRCS taught me discipline and time management. This helped me in High School and also in college at Texas A&M. I graduated from A&M in 3.5 years, and I attribute my success to my 10 years at HRCS. I recommend this school to anyone, and I plan to send my children there one day.

My son attends Holy Rosary Catholic School and is currently in the elementary school (4th grade). He has had an excellent education thus far. The teacher's are willing to help, and bend over backwards for all students if the parents are willing to listen and go that extra mile as well. I know many students who have graduated from HRS, high school and college. All ot them have gone on to be successful adults. That is why I chose to send my child there.

I think Holy Rosary not only prepares its students for the classroom but also , more importantly, for life. Not only do they provide small classes with teachers who truly care about each student and their success in the classroom, they take time to get to know each family. Because it is a small school, many of the teachers teach multiple siblings so the faculty and staff end up becoming apart of the family. Personally, I graduated in the top 2% of my high school class and was able to graduate with a BS in Biology with honors in just 3 years. Holy Rosary not only contributed to my success in the classroom, but I also believe the values I learned there helped attribute to my aspirations of becoming a physician's assistant so that I can help others. I am very thankful for my education at Holy Rosary and couldn't imagine growing up in any other community. I couldn't imagine sending my own children to any other school.

It's an excellent school with outstanding teachers, staff, students and majority of parents! Have you EVER seen students writing essays in the Kindergarten or the highest number of HRS gradutes entering best high schools of Sugar Land and Houston? This school provides it all, plus the highly recognized academics and moral values. As a parent, I prefer this small professional environment for my child. Keep up a great job, HRS!

This school needs help or to be closed by the Catholic Church. Time to get updated
