I didn't give it 5 stars because no school is perfect. I was really surprised on some of the not so positive comments. Specially the staff not being friendly. The staff is the most welcoming friendliest a staff can be. You can feel the love and sincerity as soon as you step foot in the building. It doesn't take long until everybody from the front office to the principal know you and your child by first name. As far as academics the teachers are above qualify. Your child will exceed academically. That's because the teachers keep the parents informed and involved in everything. I know my daughter is benefiting from this school when I see the joy and love she has in her for Christ. She is also exceeding academically.

My children have attended Rosehill Christian School for 3 years now; one in elementary and one in high school. They came from the public school system and we cannot be happier with the transition. We still spend time with all of our friends from public and that is when I truly see the difference. The language they use, the way they carry themselves, the way they treat their parents...all I can say is thank God for Rosehill. They truly work with parents to develop children into being all that God has equipped them to be. The academic standards they have set could not be better; most high school students graduate with 24 or more hours of dual credit. Our daughter will literally skip her freshman year of college. The investment made is definitely worth the outcome. We love Rosehill and they love our children.

There is no better place to be if you you want your child to get the best education and NOT be exposed to bullies or other bad influences.

We love RCS. We've been there six years and can't say enough good things about the teachers and staff.

We are VERY pleased with Rosehill Christian School! We have been there for two years now and the kids love it!!! They were welcomed with open arms. The academics are very strong as well as the Christian values and teachings. The one thing that was said when we came to visit the school was they are not perfect and that is true for anything or any school. We are blessed to be at this school. We plan to be here for our kids to graduate!

Was not pleased at all. Very rude people! Snobbish atmosphere, unfriendly and didn't feel the Christian atmosphere a Christian school is suppose to have.

Rosehill Christian School is a wonderful school! Although no school is perfect, we have been very pleased with RCS. The faculty and staff have done a very good job of balancing a Christ-centered approach to daily living as well as in the academic preparation for each of our four children. We are thrilled with the fact that our son, who is a senior this year, will graduate with 32 college credit hours. As we have talked with various admissions offices, we have been pleased to learn that all of these hours should transfer without any problem. Complementing a strong academic program, the school supports extra curricular student activities. Recently, the school has been blessed with the addition of a top notch athletic complex, which includes a new eight lane rubber track,a football/soccer field, a state of the art athletic training center and a baseball field. We are thrilled to have just finished ten years at RCS with plans for another six years (four future RCS alumni)! If you are looking for a great school, you need to take a look at Rosehill Christian School! We have loved it!

Rosehill Christian School has been a wonderful fit for our family both spiritually and academically. The staff has always been attentive and addressed concerns in a manner that reflects love. The daily instruction within the classrooms is challenging. Despite being human, (and therefore not perfect) the staff members have always been approachable and sincerely caring across the board. Administration is genuinely concerned with a Christ-centered world view. They continue to promote this perspective throughout the staff and the student population. We are blessed to be a part of what God is doing on the RCS campus.

Wonderful school academically and spiritually. Very qualified staff and administration with 1/3 of the staff having higher level degrees and able to teach college courses on site. We have been there 11 years and have been amazed at the impact on our kids.

Love, love, love this school! Our children are starting their sixth year here and I can not imagine them attending anywhere else! We moved to Tomball because of RCS. We have experienced preschool through third grades and love how academically challenged and spiritually supported they are by the amazing faculty and staff. So thankful our children attend such an outstanding school.

My family has been at Rosehill Christian School since 2007. My three youngest boys have (or will be starting as of this year) their education here. We love this school! My children are challenged academically, the teachers teach creatively and effectively, and my children are being educated with a Christian worldview. I love that one of the goals of our school is to arm our children with the knowledge to be able to defend their faith as adults. For these, as well as the sense of community, the love my children receive daily, and the support and partnership our family receives makes this a school my husband and I are proud to have our children grow up in.

Part 1 Our grandson attended Rosehill. He was enrolled in primary grade levels. He loved his teacher the first year. He had a couple of talking in class issues the second year (no one is perfect) . He had exellent grades and test scores both years. For the last couple years we participated in a Christian online Homeschool Program. He again has excellent grades. Excels in math and science. He has a great disposition and strong moral character. We decided to enroll him again this year for the interaction with others in a "Christian" school. To our utter shock they said he was not a fit for "Rosehill" . Seriously? They have not met him or talked to him in years. They do not know that as always he is kind, giving, smart and cares for everyone he meets

Had taken an upward turn but not any longer. Too much too fast. Constant push for money from parents so that the school can remain debt free, with little concern over parents. We have 3 kids there but not after this May and we've been asked for money 18 times this year for 1 child. Administration is MIA on most occasions leadership is not qualified to be in leadership position. Counselor is administrator in charge of discipline, no educational admin training. High School a joke, all online. Christ centered, not so.

The spiritual unity of the school's student body is very unique and wonderful. Unfortunately, the caliber of the teaching staff doesn't match up. Don't get me wrong, there are good teachers, but there is a handful that aren't up to par. If you are looking for a Christ centered education then this is the place. But, if your looking for your child to be challenged academically this really is NOT the place for you.

Not a good fit for my family, seemed driven by the almighty dollar and catered to those who could donate the most $$

RCS was an excellent choice for us. We have found the level of teaching to be superior, the learning and social environment to be excellent and the staff and parents to be down-to-earth (as opposed to the pretentiousness we experienced at a previous private school).

They have a better academic program than public school, of course, however if your child has any type of learning disability, well....your child is no longer welcome. Not very Christian like at all. Also, if you could not volunteer at a function...BEWARE...you will be labled a dead beat:)

Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
