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.
