    I was a former student of this school and I believe that I made a big accomplishment. I know when I finished middle school i was very prepared for High School due to my teachers help.

    I believe the staff and people of Rosedale talk a good game. Then the school year begins and all the great things that they have said about the school you find out different. I'am a parent that wants to know what is going on with my child at there school. In there school work behavior etc. When you try to envolve yourself the school staff treats you as if they are being bothered. There are the few that I can say are there for the kids but more for a paycheck. Hopefully with alot of prayer this school will change because it seems noone else is helping. Thanks for your time.

    I believe that Rosedale is a high performance school. Te teachers there seem to have a connection wdith the students and i believe they all strive their best.

    I believe that Rosedale attempts to bring harmony between what we allow to be called 'minorities' and the general population. My children attended Rosedale for two years (grades 6 & 7) and the only real problem I see is discipline within the school district. This school ATTEMPTS to promote equality and diversity for all. Some teachers aren't the best and shouldn't be teaching--making it hard for the children to learn. Overall this is not a bad school and they are attempting to accomodate every child schoolwide.
