Awesome christian education with emphasis on academic excellence, character development, and the arts.
St. Rose is a special place, founded in the Catholic faith with the support of the Dominican Sisters. Combined with the lay teachers, they create a family environment where the students feel comfortable and can learn in a safe and supportive setting. A challenging curriculum, weekly mass, opportunity to attend confession regularly, and a caring faculty all blend to make this a unique school here in the Birmingham area!
As a parent of two graduates and the grandparent of a current student, I can enthusiastically recommend this little gem of a school. The Dominican Sisters and their excellent standards of education make the Saint Rose experience very special. Here at Saint Rose, we belong to a great community of families who share similar values and who want the very best for their children both academically and spiritually.
The academic load is accelerated and most teachers are great and the children are encouraged to do well. Several changes within administration and staff. No "real" afterschool care and no alternatives for parents. Real cons: Lack of racial, socioeconomic diversity. Limiting.
