History of the School
Rosemount All-Age, presently Rosemount Primary and Junior high School started in May of 1973. One Thousand two hundred and sixty-eight (1268) students were enrolled. The Principal Mr. Donald McNab, along with (27) teachers and vice principals, Mr. Horace Buchanan and Mrs. Louisa White welcomed the students and parents. The school is situated in Linstead, St. Catherine, and sits on 10 acres of land. As the years went by, the school’s population as well as infrastructure increased upon the recommendation of the Ministry of Education.
With the introduction of the New Secondary School Program, by the Ministry of Education during the period of 1980s, several Elementary and All-Age Schools were renamed Primary and Junior High Schools. Hence, Rosemount became a Junior High School in 1997 when it began accepting 12-year-old students, who did not get a place in schools through the Common Entrance and the GSAT Examinations.
Presently, all Primary and Junior High Schools are transitioning to Primary status and in some cases, an Infant Department may be attached. Rosemount Primary and Junior High School are slated to operate as a Primary and Infant School.
