School Notes

  • We believe in God’s presence in each individual and the basic goodness of each person.   
  • We believe parents/guardians are the primary educators of their children. They should shape and develop their children’s faith and potential through teaching, responsible modeling, and engaging them in family and social interactions.
  • We believe in the important role of the Eucharist in our lives.
  • We value Christ’s presence and our responsibility to worship as a community in liturgical prayer.  
  • We believe in educating the whole person through intellectual, spiritual, moral, physical, and social development.
  • We believe in an environment of Christian living and learning with a faith in God that nurtures students’ self image and advocates acceptance of all people.  
  • We believe that through our ministry of teaching, healing, and comforting we are ambassadors for Christ and that we are a living sign of God’s presence in our world today.

School Reviews

-I can confidently send my child to school every day knowing she will be safe, she will be loved, and the values we have worked so hard to instill in her will be encouraged. The school atmosphere encourages respect, calm, and happiness. -Small class sizes. Some may see it as a negative, but I would pay extra for this. I know she won’t be “lost in the crowd” and that she will get one-on-one attention from her teachers. -I have always experienced excellent communication with teachers. I appreciate the updates and reports I receive each week in the Friday folder. I know I will be contacted if my child is struggling with something. I have heard from parents with students at other schools that they don’t hear about their child’s progress until conferences. At St. Rose I know there will be no surprises when we attend parent/teacher conferences. The teachers are easy to approach and always return calls or emails right away. -A middle school that prepares students for high school. I like that they are on a separate floor learning new skills (i.e. changing classes, lockers) but they are still able to be part of the school community. -A school that is open to all faiths. I like that it has the foundation of Christianity, but allows families and students to continue with their own spiritual journey.
