We have a daughter that just completed her time at RMH and we were frustrated with our experience. RMH is a "busing" school that prioritizes racial diversity over both quality of education and the neighborhood school concept. RMH is quite far for many students and the commute can be difficult, especially during heavy commuting hours. RMH is also too large for a K-2 (25-30 per class) and its practice to changeover the class roster from year to year can be disruptive until your child finally attends her neighborhood school in 3rd grade. Given that middle school begins in grade 6, your child will be in three different schools over a five year period. Our experience was that the teachers had a difficult time handling the large class sizes and our child's education suffered. We cannot recommend RMH due to its size, the disruptive changes year to year, and its anti-neighborhood school concept.

I have had a very good experience here with my chid. I volunteered a good bit weekly and got to see first hand the involvement. Yes, there a lot of kids, however they are managed very well in my opinion. I strongly disagree with the below two reviews from 2017. We have had a very positive experience at RH.

Teachers seem great. Mrs. Zimmerman and Mrs. Ryan don't seem to care about the health and safety of their students. They only care about how they look and making sure they are free of blame. There seems to be no protocol for how Rosemary Hills handles kids with allergies in the lunch room and this is due to their leadership or lack thereof. A binder with kids names and their list of allergens? Is that really going to help someone? I truly hope things change. It's only a matter of time before something goes terribly wrong.

Yes, this is deemed to be a better school in a better area and with better teachers, but it's all relative. A mixture of class sizes, curriculum in place, staff mentality leaves little room for excitement. Can't wait to be done with RHPS and move on to NCC.

Best school, best teachers, best community. Teachers are so involved with their students I'm so happy my little girl had such a great teachers that take good care of her so dedicated to teach since I'm mostly working at night time I only spent a couple days working with her but when I told this to her teacher she told me not to worry about she was going to help her as much as she can and she did. I'm so surprise on how much my little princess know. Thank you so much ms. Callaway. First grade teacher. Thank you so much ms. Alley. Kindergarten teacher.
