Rosedale Middle School Reviews
My two daughters graduated from RMS in 2006 and 2008. During that time as an involved parent, I encountered a wonderful caring office staff, and a teaching staff that was energized and interested in every student's welfare. Unfortunately during that time they were "remodeling" and that caused some facility problems...which (since the remodel is done) is thankfully over. I have friends with children attending RMS now, and they say it is absolutely the best environment their children have ever been in. They are doing alot of things RIGHT at RMS.
Great school really is. teachers are amazing and careing unlike most. going up hill 2011 baby as a student i no hands on how great it is tons of parent help and its all around a fun enviornment
This was a sub-standard school when I attended in the 70s, and it's gone quickly downhill in the decades since. Burnt out teachers, poor kids with uninvolved parents, and incredibly aged facilities that are depressing too look at from the highway...one can only imagine spending five days a week INSIDE them. Stands in stark contrast to all of the new schools that have been built as this one was left to decompose.
