    My daughter just started at Rosemont. We've been very happy with her teacher the principle and front office staff- pretty much everyone we've interacted with. The PTA is very involved and there are a lot of extra activities for the kids to participate in.

    I am very happy with the teachers. They sure do their jobs very well. I'll keep my son there.

    We have been at Rosemont for a year now and are very happy with it. I like the diversity of students the teachers the staff the principal the extras added to the after school programs and there are several and I like that they strive to be academically competitive. Mostly however I like that my kids like it. Every day they are excited to go to school. We wanted a 'small town' environment for our family and the school fits that image.

    We are very happy with the programming; teachers and administrators at Rosemont. The school is already great having extra programming (ELO) highly trained teachers and a good diverse group of kids but it is still getting better with a flourishing PTA and after-school extracurriculars coming in (foreign language and science). This is the kind of school that a child can feel and gain confidence going in. The kids are generally kind and not cliquish like other schools seem to be. And it's the kind of school that a good student can shine in rather than get lost in the competition and pressure. It's truly a gem in a public school system which is best in the country... providing a real comfortable place for a child to learn and grow. Whatever slight disadvantages might be obvious they are superbly outweighed by the advantages of Rosemont and it's getting better every day!

    I love Rosemont. My children love Rosemont. I live in Rockville so when I moved there I didn't understand why we were routed to a Gaithersburg school but I have no issues with the school at all. The teachers are amazing my daughter was reading her second week in the ELO (early learning opportunity) BEFORE she started Kindergarten and this past year she has thrived beyond my wildest expectation. She is testing in second grade math and reading currently. I adore her teacher. All of the enrichment programs are incredible. I like the mix of children as well. Very diverse. The small class sizes and personal attention are very attractive. I am confident we are in the right school.

    Very poorly maintained. A disgrace to the public school system.

    I have to say Rosemont was not my first choice and I had to send my kids there due to unavoidable circumstances. We even tried to sell our house. Thank god it never got sold and now we want to stay put till our kids are through elementary school. the principal and teachers are wonderful the small class sizes and all the intervention programmes and early learning opportunities afforded have made me very confident that my childrens education is on track!

    My children have attended this school for the past two years and we have had an excellent experience. One of my children is special needs and they have been right on top of any issues that he has had. Everyone is open and friendly and very acessible.

    This school has come a long way in the last 3 years. Test scores are improving class size is smaller than average one on one attention is available (however this is probably due to the Title I classification). My only concern is the change in leadership. Mr. Talley turned the school around he was a tough cookie in the kids eyes and they respected him as well as feared him (a perfect combo for a principal). This school needs to proceed with strong leadership if it is going to continue to improve.

    When it comes to teachers they are pretty good. A great mix of students too. The administration leaves a little to be desired. They are in transition ( a new principal) so they are a little inexperienced.
