School Notes

  • Through feedback and surveys, here`s what families share most often about why they value "the little school where big things happen."
  • WE`RE SMALL. St. Rose is a safe, self-contained campus, with one classroom per grade and limited class sizes. Students and families know, trust and take care of one another. Community is important, and we make sure that no one gets lost in the shuffle. 
  • WE VALUE VALUES. Kindness, honesty, respect and generosity are not abstract concepts. Virtue education is intrinsic to our mission, and students in all grades participate in community service projects to care for those in need. 
  • OUR STUDENTS SUCCEED. A comprehensive PK-8 curriculum helps create lifelong learners and prepares students for what`s next. Currently, 100% of our graduates are accepted to their first-choice Catholic high school. 
  • DIVERSITY BENEFITS ALL. We welcome Catholic and non-Catholic families, and encourage applicants from diverse cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. If a family wants to be here, our generous tuition assistance program can help make it happen. 
  • WE WORK AS A COMMUNITY TO IMPROVE. No school is perfect, but we work hard to address challenges together. We rely on parental involvement, an active School Advisory Council, "coffee chats" with the principal and pastor, surveys and more. We're not perfect, but we might be the perfect fit you.

School Reviews

We joined the St. Rose School community when my son was in PreK. We thought we would only be here for one year because both my husband and I grew up in public schools. What I didn't realize was what a wonderful community we were walking into. After the first two weeks in PreK, I knew we'd be sticking around. Our son is going into 8th grade next year and this school has been integral in forming him as a kind, empathetic young man. Our daughter is going into 3rd grade and loves the school like her second home. Both kids are constantly challenged in academics and loved for who they are. I can't imagine sending them anywhere else.
