    There school is okay I guess. It sometimes has teachers people don't like but most schools have that. The hallways are always noisy and they have such small lockers!

    Rosa is a legend in it's own mind. Two of my children went there two went to another Cherry Hill Middle School; the other one did a much better job of preparing them for High School. Too much blather not enough challenging work. They do well on the test scores because of the family demographics despite the teachers.

    Amazing School - One of the best middle schools in the country by far! Excellent teachers that want to be part of the IB environment supportive administration. Could not have been a better experience!

    This magnet school utilizes the International Bacalaureate Middle Years Programme. It is one of academic excellence and social awareness that produces a well-rounded student body.. This school attracts the best teachers and keeps them. My son flourished academically and athletically during his 3 years at Rosa. The baseball team is the South Jersey Middle School League Champions. for 2010. The soccer team did very well this year too...

    The teacher are not good at there job and do not disipline the children. Though test scores are high all of the children are very rude. Also the sports team at my childs school are terrible because the all of the coaches have no knowledge of there sport

    Rosa has a very rigourous academic program geared to prepare students for high school. I also love the teachers and administrators who make the school feel like a small community. There are extracurriculur activities for everyone and my kids loved it there.

    Rosa is the only middle school to get the National Blue Ribbon and Character Award this past year. The staff are very focused and kind. The kids work hard but are very happy. Tough enriched Math curriculum. Well rounded academics.

    Rosa is a warm place where the kids feel comfortable and cared for while at the same time maintaining academic rigor. Our vision for the school integrates best practices for middle schools and is implemented by administration teachers and support staff with enthusiasm and professionalism.
