Rosemont has a staff who cares and will go out of their way to help students and parents in any way they can. Students get an excellent education at Rosemont Elementary!


Posted February 11, 2004

I had interviewed several private area schools before making the decision to send my daughter to her neighborhood school, Rosemont Forest. The faculty is exceptional, the atmosphere is warm and friendly, and the parental involvement is very strong. I do not regret my decision for one minute.

At Rosemont Elementary, I have found that the staff is extremely helpful and courtesy. The school offers an array of opportunities for the children to grow and learn. The teachers provide a loving and caring learning environment, and yet maintain respect from their students. The parents are kept well-informed of activities and progress in their child's performance. Adequate safety precautions are in place to ensure the safety of each child in attendance. I have been pleased with what I have seen in Rosemont Elementary, and am proud to have my children in attendance there. Congratulations Rosemont on achieving Full Accreditation for SOL performance.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
