School Notes

  • St. Rose Elementary School, rooted in Catholic values, strives to achieve educational excellence by facilitating the intellectual, spiritual, and physical growth of each child and promoting a community of faith, hope, love and service.
  • We utilize STEM/STREAM throughout our grade levels. Our teachers differentiate their instruction striving to reach and teach the students of St. Rose. The staff of St. Rose of Lima School has certified teaching degrees with several teachers having dual certifications. We believe that the academic potential of each child best develops within a caring and supportive atmosphere where children are respected and loved for the gifts and talents they possess and are encouraged and challenged to discover those talents to the fullest. We possess a "growth mindset" attitude as a school family.
  • Situated on a sprawling 15-acre countryside campus, St. Rose Elementary school boasts a new basketball court, playground equipment and sports fields.  Inside, our main building has a dedicated computer lab, newly designed sensory learning station, multi-purpose room and much more.  We offer a serene learning environment and look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
