Welcome to General Rosecrans Elementary!

We are proud of our school’s academic achievements as a school of Excellence with Distinction. Equally as important, we pride ourselves in offering a challenging and safe learning environment where all students are nurtured academically, socially, and emotionally. As a staff, we are committed to inspiring and guiding each student to his or her maximum potential.

As a school community, we understand how essential it is for families and the school to partner together. In an effort to keep you informed, we encourage you to sign up for “Eagle-i” on the left side of this page and to visit our "Online Classrooms" regularly. Bridging the gap between home and school is a vital key to each child achieving their maximum potential, and we appreciate your support!  

As a thirteen year member of Big Walnut Schools, it will be a joy to work with familiar faces and get to know new ones.   Please don’t hesitate to contact me via email or phone if I can help you in any way.   Here’s to a great school year and the beginning of a great working relationship!  May we all work together to inspire and guide one another.

Looking forward to a fabulous 2015-2016 school year!

Megan Rose Forman 
Principal 
General Rosecrans Elementary School
