This school is amazing! My son was so scared when he started kindergarten last year, and they made him feel comfortable and right at home. By the third day of school, he acted like he'd been there for ages and he had so much fun. They learned how to read rather quickly which we loved, and the amount of knowledge he left the school year with was astounding! The teachers are wonderful and helpful, and parents can be involved all the time. I recommend this school to anyone.

Amazing school, amazing teachers. They took the time to communicate with me on every level regarding all 3 of my childrens' education. All 3 of my kids completed K-6 at this school. The principals are amazing and I wish we could do those years all over again. Don't let this rating fool you.

I had two children attend this school and both did very well. For my son, a special needs student, this school went above and beyond in meeting his needs and providing a quality education. The teachers take a genuine interest in each student and want to see them succeed.

Rosemont Forest Elementary is filled with caring and delightful staff. Communications from the school are excellent and timely, I had 2 children attending there last year and both had fantastic teachers that did everything to help them succeed. Even working with an IEP for one of my children was never a problem! This is a Great school! My kids are excited to start this year !

I taught Elementary Art before having children so I've seen quite a few schools and PTAs. I am extremely impressed with both the staff and the parents at this school. From the moment I walked in, I felt welcome. I'd highly recommend Rosemont Forest to any one looking for a quality school.

This is one of the best schools my children have attended. Low turnover in teachers and administration allow the staff to get to know the students and their families. As a military family, my four children have attended 5 elementary schools total -- Rosemont Forest is the cream of the crop. Great staff, great school, great PTA and lots of family activities throughout the year!

As a first time parent of internationally adopted elementary aged kids, I had heard horror stories from other parents putting their kids in public school so I was concerned. 3 years later, I have only the highest praise for the teachers and administration at ROFO. They have been wonderful to my kids and very open minded and flexible with the issues we faced. I have become very involved in the school and have a wonderful relationship with the staff.

It is a small, nurturing school and each of its teachers really knows their students. Teachers go out of their way to make sure students are getting a quality education. I really feel at this school, 'No child is left behind!'
