Why Parents Choose Rose Academy

2. Personal connections between students and teachers

Students are met with individually to plan curriculum and to meet their needs.

3. Instructional groups are arranged according to achievement levels not according to standard grade levels

Student & Parent Experiences

We absolutely love this school. Our son has attended the summer programs and the regular school year and it's been so beneficial to his academics and general well being. The faculty and staff have been so great working with him and we can't say enough good things about the experience so far.

Rose Academy is a great school. Mr. and Mrs. Rose are very caring people who listen to the parents and student for each child's individual needs. We moved here from the Atlanta area and have been thrilled with our child's progress. I highly recommend this school if your child has learning differences.

The tutoring program at Rose has been GREAT!! My son has shown excellent progress since he started tutoring. Nobody is turned away and if $$ is the issue, they will work with you so your child can excel.

My child excelled at school after a short stint with the Rose School tutors at HCES. His study skills improved and his confidence soared. He is now excelling without any support. The Rose team is truly committed to each child.

Rose Academy is committed to developing relationships with our students and with their parents. We cultivate ongoing communication to ensure that we are meeting student needs and that parents are aware of goals and progress. 

Rose Academy offers academically stimulating programs in a positive, joyful environment. We welcome parent input but not during instructional time as interruptions limit our effectiveness.

Reviewing material outlined at the Florida Center for Reading Research is also recommended.
