This school is good, if you want your child in a great environment, spiritual. But in my opinion they lack in teaching, and helping your child to succeed. Instead of working with your child,they are quick to tell you it's your child's fault,he or she is failing. I believe they are more focus on the

If your child is not a born genius,don't expect this school to make them (children) into one. Gone are those days when teacher teach. I don't think I would recommend this school to anyone. And I'm saying this with a heavy heart,because I really loved this school. Read less

Horrible experience. Instructor staines and the the principal horrible. Greedy for money and constant negative feedback about my son who attended pre-k. I even had my son checked by the nys board of education and after a series of tests my son passed every single test given. Constant reports of my son
... Read more misbehaving at age 4. I'm not saying my son is angel but far from being Dennis the menace. The instructor was new and felt my son has psychological problems. Well again the NYS board of education deemed him as normal, his pediatrian deemed him as normal and so does his current school in Long Island deemed him also perfectly normal. High grades in tests and quiet in classroom. Teacher states " a pleasure to have my son in class. Now he is going to third grade with awesome grades. So my review is real and my opinion. I will never have any of my children nor do I recommend this school to anyone. Waste of money, time and made me feel like my son was incompetent. Read less

This school is absolutely one of the most judgmental schools possible. The big-nosed principle doesn't understand that everyone comes from a different background, especially a socioeconomic one, all she cares about is money. There is no family values at this school, it instills fear in their students

The staff is also very spiteful when my daughter was applying for a middle school for gifted children the administration and people in the office screwed up her application on purpose, as well as submitted false attendance records to show she's excessively absent. That jeopardized my daughter's chance of admission just because they didn't want another child escaping their brainwashing techniques. Don't send your child here, especially for the insanely high tuition you have to pay for an elementary school! Read less

Very good school. However, when you have 6th- 8th graders in the same enviorment of pre-K-5th graders, they would be treated as little kids and not the full growth of maturing young adults. They also have a Principal that is very stern and gets into the business of others, in which she has no business

My daughter has attended St Rose for two years now and I absolutely love the school! The teachers and staff are caring and the small school allows them to know every child's name.

This is the worst school I have ever seen. I have 4 children and have never experienced a school so judgemental.

I sent my son to St. Rose for Pre K. His teacher worked with us and our son to make his school experience the best it could be. The principal is a stern, and demanding woman who has a heart of gold. She is responsible for every soul in her school and takes that responsibility seriously. She may come
