  • Rosa Fort has isn't a good school education wise. The teachers really don't care. It's base on popularity and who you kno. There are a few good teachers who actally try to help us students. I just know I wouldn't send my child there if I had one cause I use to go there and HATED it.

  • I think that Rose Fort is getting a bad rap. The teachers and staff is not bad. With this being majority black and public school, they are being looked down on. Maybe people need to look from the inside out in stead of outside in. There is alot of good thingsgoing on in 2008. Go LIONS!

  • Rosa Fort High need new leadership in order to move forward. They also need to stop hiring these old retiree form other state, they just come in to get a paycheck as of now the school is at a level one and that sad with all of the casino funds.
