St. Rose Students are Outstanding Academic Performers
In October of each year, St. Rose students (2nd – 8th grades) take the Iowa Test of Basic Skills, a nationally standardized test of student performance and academic achievement. Our students’ tests scores show that on average, all grades performed above grade level, and our 8th graders were reading at the 11th grade level and their math skills were at the 10th grade level. 100% of St. Rose graduates go on to high school, many to such schools as Chaminade, Alemany, Crespi, La Reina, Notre Dame and Louisville.
