  • I attended Rosemont from 1981-1986. I have to say they were the best years of my life. The teachers were so caring and loving. My favorite teacher of course was Mrs. Wood. She was an incredible woman. I was in Track A and I enjoyed being a volunteer during my vacation. It was a very good place to be. Things have changed since. I went to visit about 8 years ago and the times have really changed the school from what I remember it. Incredibly, I loved the cafeteria food and never really had problems with anyone on staff or the administration. I went to school in the morning and then across the street to the children center until my mother would pick us up later that afternoon. I finally left in 1986 to junior high and high school in Woodland Hills. But though I left Rosemont, Rosemont left me with some unforgettable teachers and unforgettable moments. Thank you Mrs. De Las Cuevas (3rd and 5th grade), Mrs. White, Mr. Gentry.

  • This school does not treat parent and students the way they should be treated. The cafeteria staff yells at students and disrespects them.

  • I attended Rosemont Avenue Elementary School from the years 1938 to 1943. I thought it was a very good school, although I didn't know any other for a comparison. I liked it, and I liked all of the teachers. Mrs. Bundy was my 1st grade teacher, a portly woman with blonde hair, and I think some of the girls liked her especially, and called her Mrs. Bunny. She had one thing that I think might now have been the best to do. That was to put a pink baby bonnet on any child that was acting like a baby, and rock him/her in her arms in front of the class. I, fortunately, never had to suffer that embarrassment. We all laughed about it. When we assembled in class, all of us were to put our heads down on the desk until the teacher began the class. I came in late on day, but I went to my desk, and laid my head down automatically. Mrs. Bundy thought that was nice, and asked me to come with her to the next classroom up the hall. I was being promoted to the next grade, and I didn't have any idea why, but I thought it must have been because I was good. In later life, I reflected on it, as that had happened twice during the time I was enrolled at Rosemont. I figured it out. My father was an older man than most children my age, and I know he wanted me to get through school as soon as possible, for he might not live long enough to see me through. My grades were always good, and I was the best speller in the school, thanks especially to my mother, a teacher, and my father, who was a very learned man. The day I started Rosemont, I was a big cry-baby all day long. At the end of the day, my father asked me how I liked school, and I said, "fine". From that day on, I enjoyed the full six years of my stay at Rosemont. The teachers at that time were very good at their jobs, and were very kind. Mrs. Griffin was my last teacher, a gentle woman, and I hated to leave Rosemont, as I had heard some bad things about the Junior High School I was about to attend. Of course, after I went to the new school, I liked it just as much, although my grades suffered because I was a teenager that had many other things on my mind. I have no idea what Rosemont is like now, or what the teachers are like. I certainly hope everything is still excellent.

    P.S. Mrs. Troeger was the Principal, a formidable woman, but pleasant. The Vice-Principal was Miss Lightner, a "babe". Who could not like her?
