    Desperate to increase enrollment things have certainly changed at this school. Some parents strong-arm teachers and administration to "have it their way." Religious ed instructors with one exception certainly do not abide by The Golden Rule. Curriculum is generally in chaos and some classes do not even have books. It makes for a difficult atmosphere for students and staff.

    The academic expectations are unrealistic and consequently the girls are unnecessarily stressed out most of the time.

    This school offers everything education should be; teaching excellence athletics the arts and leadership opportunities for young women. It has been perfect for our granddaughter.

    My daughter was apprehensive when her friends mostly went to a public high school. But two months in she loves it! We are very pleased with the academics communication and leadership. Most importantly we see an ethical and professional environment which was lacking from her previous school district.

    It is truly a wonderful school for girls to study play sports be involved in the arts as well as becoming great young women by the time they graduate. I truly believe they want each and every girl to succeed and become responsible adults. Rosary is an exceptional college prep school. I have not met a parent yet that did not feel that their daughter was not prepared to handle college courses. They are prepared to write papers and have developed excellent study habits. Rosary is the best!!!!!

    Rosary provides a quality education to the students. Despite the weak economy the administration works extra hard to provide financial support to struggling families. Rosary employees work together to provide a top-notch education despite departmental budget constraints and minimal pay raises. It's all about the girls!

    Rosary is amazing. The quality of the public schools I attended prior to Rosary cannot compare to this school as Rosary provides you with a well-rounded experience and encourages you to dig deep within yourself to realize your potential. Rosary challenged me encouraged me to work hard and dream big become a woman of faith and have confidence in myself. The teachers are amazing and the sense of community is strong. Yes Rosary is expensive but she is worth every penny.

    As a former student I can honestly say 'I would not be where I am today without Rosary.' It's true that it wasn't the easiest the school and they are very strict on their students but it really is for our own good. Rosary Alumni have a very high success rate after graduation. After going through this school college was no problem at all! All in all I am very glad that I my parents allowed me to further my education and excell the way I have by supporting my decision to attend Rosary. I highly recommend this school for students (or parents of students)that feel their current school doesn't allow them to live up to their full potential.

    The homework takes a while but it is beneficial. The sports teams work hard but are really good. Basically if you put in the effort then you will get a lot back. It is a good college prep school with a lot of rules. It is hard to not get in trouble at least once while you are there. All of the girls are very nice and supportive.

    This school is ok. The principle is very judgmental and punishes for no reason. The school has very strict rules and lots of homework and sets unrealistic standards.

    This Catholic private all female high school has it all. You get a top-notch education the sports programs are excellent and the number of extra-curricular activities is endless. All this in an atmosphere of caring teachers who really get to know each and every student. Rosary High School is worth every single penny.
