Rosemont High School Reviews

255 reviews

I gave it a 3 star review instead of a 5 star one because the school really has some issues. Especially in terms of letting students use the restrooms. They only give you five paper passes a semester. This inhibits students from wanting to drink plenty of water because if you run out of passes they add up to detentions. This causes students to become dehydrated and then the teachers blame it on the students because they had the "seven minute passing period" to use the only three or four restrooms in the whole school. Besides from the bathroom issues and their awful maintenance, the school has pretty good food. But, there is inadequate seating for the 1300 kids there. There are long lines that you usually have to stand in for almost the whole lunch and by the time you reach the top of the line, they have already run out of food. The inadequate seating leaves kids to sit and eat their food on the dirty ground. Other than that, a lot of the teachers are super sweet!

Rosemont High School certainly is not a bad school. It has various career pathways such as a trades pathway and culinary pathway. Teachers vary—some are great teachers and supporters, some have poor teaching technique. The school hosts workshops for financial aid, college applications, and voter registration/pre-registration. Perhaps the best part of Rosemont is the students. Fitting in is not a problem for anyone; people are very sociable. It has a diverse range of students that readily accept others. However, the school lacks academic courses, which holds some students back. It does not offer classes nearby schools do, such as AP Chemistry, Music Theory, and AP Economics. Furthermore, AP English and AP Social Science classes are restricted to students (with few exceptions) in the LEAD pathway, a program dedicated to fostering community service and college readiness. The program itself is great but it denies access to AP for students not in LEAD, which frustrates some students.
The staff at Rosemont High School, for the most part, are extremely kind and truly care about the well-being of the students. I have had many teachers that I can honestly say have changed me for the better and that I will remember throughout my higher education and beyond. Most of the teachers push their students to do the best they can on every assignment and are always there when students need help. One thing I would change, however, would be the disciplinary procedures regarding the students. I feel that most of the students at Rosemont get away with things too easily and I think that having a stronger discipline system will help them in the long run.
