All Categories
Rosemount is a southern suburb of the greater metropolitan (St. Paul/Minneapolis) area in Minnesota. At the heart of school district 196, Rosemount boasts top ranking schools and excellent faculty. Five stars to this fast-growing town adjacent to Apple Valley, MN. Home to small businesses, low crime, and newly developing neighborhoods, what was once a small town has recently been voted as one of the best places to raise a family. Rosemount is a top city for education, home-ownership and retirement. Come see the newly opened assisted living facility located off HWY 3 in picturesque downtown Rosemount. Stay for the family-oriented community, built for life.
Review Rosemount
I grew up in the Rosemount and Apple Valley area. Over time, it has grown and is still growing. But, still holds a nice suburb charm. There is a lot of community involvement and extra-curricular things to do and learn, so you can always make connections and live life. Plus, it isn't too far from the Mall of America or out door trails, depending on the season and what you enjoy taking part in.
The schools in district 196 are awesome. But, I do feel they could use a lot more financial support and one-on-one ratios need to be improved with students. Still, I know this district has more to offer than a lot of others at this time.
I moved here 4 years ago. And other than one sweet neighbor, no one cared about 'us' We are a muslim family living in a White neighborhood. It a nice neighborhood to live in, not nice people
