I took a tour of the white marsh campus because I heard great things about the school. It's a secure facility that requires credentials to get in and has multiple cameras. The receptionist, tour guide, and most of the teachers were very friendly. They have taken great care to make sure that the environment is clean. I loved the fact that most of the classes for younger kids (2 to 3 years) had a teacher as well as an aid present for the extra help. The student-to-teacher ratio ranges from 10:1 to 15:1. There are some departments that are lacking in extra help such as the music department but I was given the impression that things may change moving forward. The students were well behaved and well trained. I was impressed with the diversity in the student body but NOT so much within the teaching staff or administration.

This is my daughters second year at RBS, and we love it. It was one of the best choices we made sending her to RBS. Working for BCPS I saw first hand the daily struggles both teachers and students faced. What I see at RBS is support, dedication and a curriculum designed to support the children of tomorrow. To see our daughter excel and engage in learning is true without a doubt due to the caring teachers and staff at RBS. The curriculum is what I recall being taught in school, it`s filled with the educational support to really engage and fill those growing minds. For me personally to see our daughter grow in faith, and connect with her beliefs is just another blessing. I could go on and on, if you are thinking about RBS, definitely schedule a tour. I just know you will love RBS as we do.

This is my child's first year at Rosedale. Attended Baltimore County Schools prior to going to Rosedale Baptist The curriculum is more advanced at Rosedale and there is more homework than Baltimore County, but my child is b doing better. I believe he is doing good because of how the curriculum is taught to students. A++ school
