St. Rose of Lima Catholic School is the best school EVER. I have 4 children, all of which attended St. Rose. They learned so much there and most importantly they learned self discipline, values, morals and how to be good, caring people. Everyone of them are successful today and St. Rose of Lima Catholic School played an important part in that. I would highly recommend St. Rose to any parent looking for a good quality school to send their child/children. I can't emphasize enough how important it is for your child to have a good foundation under them before becoming a teenager. St. Rose can help your child have that. Sending my children to St. Rose was the best decision I ever made for my children.

All I will say is that my daughter started kinergarten this year and is already reading simple books to me at home. Not only reading them but, comprehending what she reads also. If you fret about the cost of private school, the results are more than worth it in my opinion. Great learning environment with teachers that truely care.

St. Rose School is great. They worked with my grandsons to tremendously improve reading skills and improve on my grandsons behavior challenges. The support from the teachers was great and it was fun each night to direct homework

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. 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.
