    Holy Rosary is an awesome school! Not only do they offer a faith-based academically challenging program for our children but their program has the diversity that many public schools can no longer support such as music class art social studies and science regular PE and field trips to reinforce learning through experience. We appreciate knowing that our child is getting a well-rounded education that is not just focused on reading and math to pass standardized tests. Thank you Holy Rosary and especially Principal Van Pelt for offering such an amazing program!
