Dropping off and picking up kids is a big challenge. They don't have enough school buses so most kids either have to walk or get a ride from parents. You can't even park near the school to pick up kids. You literally have to walk from your home to pick up your kids. If you want to bring a car to pick up your kid, expect to wait in car for at least 30 min. Rosa Lee is also right next to a High School. These two schools create big traffic in the morning and afternoon.
We love Rosa Lee Carter and will stay in this area of Ashburn for as long as our children are in Elementary school! Principal Ms. Hines is just amazing and our daughter's kindergarten teacher Mrd. Peng has made the entire year so much fun and our daughter has learned so much. We are almost sad the Summer is here!
We are SO excited for the Rosa Lee Carter school community as they just (last week!) received the Academic Excellence Award for the second year in a row! So exciting! The administration has been very attentive to any student or family concerns and for that we are thankful.
We can't wait to return next year to see all of the wonderful things Rosa Lee Carter will be doing!
Just check the demographic/diversity before enrolling your child. It was very difficult for my daughter to find and make friends, as other cultures did not embrace her due to her Caucasian ethnicity. She is a clear minority in her class, and is at an age where she recognizes it. We are now moving to another school district with more diversity.
Our child transferred in mid-year and his teacher and the administration went above and beyond to assist in his transition. The class sizes are larger than we hoped they would be but we always felt like our child received the attention and supported he needed. The administration is consistently responsive and wants to work cooperatively with us to provide our child with a positive school experience.
Although the school is good, I am a bit depressed about the way students are handled during pickup at morning. There are no rules (K first etc) or anyone comes at anytime and stands anywhere in the queue. I am writing this because, my kid was pushed back from the queue and other kid went ahead. There was no student patrol. In fact friends of student partroling kids come after maybe 15 kids but go in bus with them before even all other kids who have come before them. I would strongly suggest to mentor Patrol to observe discipline during getting on the bus.
