Staff is incompetent, they shove their religion down childrens' throats, not at all accepting of the LGBT+ community, and they worsened my daughter's mental illness. I hope nobody will subject their children to this horrid facility.

A fantastic preschool with great teachers! My son loves going to school where he is encouraged to explore and learn at his own pace. He is acknowl…
Teachers and staff are always available for contact and are eager to help students should they be struggling in any way. This type of school system also makes it entirely possible to graduate and go to a great college like any other student in a "normal" school environment. Definitely an incredible experience and so worth it. Thank you Mr. K – we love you as a young male teacher and we are sure you love us too. Thank you for the dedication and help and even though you teach very hard and mark hard, we know it is for our best because we have seen the great results in our exams. Thank you for helping me score Level 4 on my State exams.—Submitted by a student – 8th Grade Student, Rosedale Christian School
We took our kids out of public school. we felt they not getting a strong educational foundation(especially our son). Since our son has been in Rosedale Christian Academy with the help of great teachers, administrative staff and smaller classrooms, he scored 98% better than students in his grade on the state exam. "IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD" is truly the belief of the school. We always knew our son had great potential, with the help of RCA it now shows.
This is a small school community where every parent can be involved with school activities. The teachers are great and everyone knows the kids so this make them feel special. They learn a lot of Christian values at this school. As a parent that have two kids in this school, I am very happy and would recommend the school to any other parent out there who is looking for a good academically structured good school environment ... and that would like to have a great education for theirs kids. My children are excelling academically and I am very happy here – likewise my children. My youngest is performing two levels above the general school around here and my older scored Level 4 on the Common Core State exams. A great school that places great emphasis on academics. Would love to recommend this school as one of the best here in Rosedale community and Queens in general. Speaking from the heart! Parents would love to see a high school now in place that carries over the same great education and values. Thank you staff!—Submitted by a parent
My son started at Rosedale Christian School this year after a rough time in the public school setting. Here at RCS, he has thrived so much and has learned so many great skills socially and behaviorally that have absolutely helped him to excel academically. He is now in the 5th Grade and has scored Level 3 on the State exams. The teachers and staff here are so patient and absolutely go above and beyond! They took the time to actually get to know my son and what his interests are. They used this information to develop a plan that would work for him! Each child here is appreciated for their differences and are unique in their own way. The instruction and plans are individualized for each child. My son loves school so much now and hates when school is closed or there is a vacation! There is no better feeling than knowing that your child is happy and feels loved at school! Thanks Thanks Thanks! —Submitted by a parent
The staff is readily equipped and are carefully specialized in dealing with children who are intelligent (even genius) but have some challenges (either behavioral or learning). It is a warm and nurturing environment with state of the art learning and an evidenced based behavioral component. There is NO other school like this one in my honest opinion. Their social thinking curriculum, for example, teaches kids how to better understand themselves and others and has a strong anti bullying component built into it (This curriculum should be used everywhere IMO). The extracurricular activities are excellent and are appropriate even for a child who is easily overwhelmed. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that my child would joyfully participate in the arts, singing, Christian meditation, music, etc. The school strives to connect the community to the student body (and visa versa). I am happy that the schools are now considering donations for the homeless, food drives, etc. I cannot wait for this to start and I am ready to start working with the student body and the PTO board to get this project us and running for community awareness. This school is such a good school that once the community is aware, the people in the community will definitely support this school and thus help the student body with their playground effort etc. I am asking the general public to support this great school for its great significant role it played in the lives of the students it serve. —Submitted by a parent
I can understand the frustration of the administrator posted earlier on this review page. Far from the truth -- this parent most certainly has a personal vendetta against the school. If she is talking about this school, then my child and I are not where she is talking about ... certainly not RCA! Our child moved to RCA from a private school... we love the attention of the teachers, the facility is excellent and the classes are small/medium size. The staff and is amazing, attentive, and caring. From the first day we came to RCA until today we've felt welcomed and our child has enjoyed it tremendously while learning and progressing. The setting at this school is more like a family - everyone knows everyone's name! My child is doing exceptionally well at this school. We can't wait 'till our second one is able to go there. If you could design an ideal elementary school, then you would design RCA. —Submitted by a parent
My son is in his third year at RCA and I find it hard to believe the less than par reviews I've seen posted. Ms Pauline is an excellent principal who not only is a great listener to parents but she acts on finding solutions to issues. She is a do-er. The teachers are all stellar. Yes, parents have their preferences on who they get each year it seems but really, there are no bad teachers. It is a loving, special place. I feel so blessed to be a part of this school. —Submitted by a parent
We just got back from 1st grade Back to school night. I feel so lucky to be part of this school. The teachers are warm, caring, and wonderfully professional. It's clear that they take pride in what they do and spend a lot of energy being the best they can be. Plus, it is a child focused environment. We are starting to love this school. This is our first year and we are really hoping for great success with this school. My child is in the 1st Grade – Rosedale Christian School—Submitted by a new parent
Fabulous educational environment where gifted learners can thrive and excel at their own pace. My 2.5 is reading!! Unheard of!! Some of the highest quality educators in the district have been chosen to make RGAP and RCS the very best place to learn! My kiddos (one in preschool and one in Middle School) travel almost an hour each way to attend. My middle schooler scored Level 3 on the NYS exams. It has been a huge blessing to our family to be involved at RGAP – Preschool and RCS middle school. Great foundation and great teaching. It can be a bit pricey but you see what you are paying for. My 2.5 year old is using the McGraw Hill curriculum for all the core subjects – Math, Science, Social Studies and ELA. She uses those same textbooks in class and also for homework. She is involved in technology just as my middle schooler – except my middle schooler uses laptop and she does not! This tells you that the academic foundation is stabled! So happy to find this school. My children are excelling academically by leaps and bounds! Truly a gifted program! RGAP and RCS please keep it right where it is – upward yes, downward NO! —Submitted by a parent
