At St. Rose of Lima School you and your child will encounter values that can last a lifetime.
We work with parents to help our students acquire the knowledge and self confidence they need to be interested and involved in the world around them.
They are encouraged to set their sights on desirable, long-range lifestyle and career goals by a curriculum and learning environment that are always challenging.
Participation keeps St. Rose strong. An elected student government gives students a voice in defining their own educational environment, while our community-based, independently elected School Board, permits parents to have a genuine say in the growth and education of their child.
St. Rose remains an outstanding education value, particularly when our small class sizes, personalized programs, and strong student performance rankings are compared with the costs of attending other private and parochial schools in our area.

From: Chuck Darling March 5, 2020Re: Music As most of you know, I was a church guitarist and song leader for over 30 years. Only ten years were paid, at 25 dollars a week. This helped pay for our kids' catholic education at St. Rose of Lima in Buffalo, NY. My son and daughter thoroughly enjoyed St. Rose, and went on to Canisius, and Sacred Heart Academy. Both received scholarships to University, my daughter Allison being valedictorian of Sacred Heart.
