St. Rose-McCarthy Catholic School

"The friendships that we developed working alongside other families will last a lifetime."

"I have fond memories and deep respect for the school."

"I couldn't have asked for a better start ..."

I spent nine years in my plaid uniform and I would not trade my elementary education for anything in the world. I was not only exposed to the new beginnings of learning at McCarthy, but I was also able to explore my Catholic faith and grow closer to God with each school year. The teachers took a personal interest in me and my personal development. I graduated Salutatorian of my 8th grade class and went on to attend San Joaquin Memorial High School. After high school, I attended Santa Clara University. I was given the opportunity to be a student athlete and enjoy college and sports at the same time. I thank my parents for making the investment in me 23 years ago and choosing St. Rose-McCarthy for my elementary education. The foundation you receive at a young age molds you as an individual and also gives you the base you need to continue to excel in academics for many years to come.

"I was able to explore my Catholic faith and grow closer to God with each school year."

​My sister, brother, and I all graduated from St. Rose-McCarthy. So did my three children. Being both an alumni and a parent allows me to have two perspectives of the school. The structure of faith, small classrooms, and family atmosphere helped me develop core values and grow closer to my faith. A faith that I rely on day in and day out. The fundamentals of education provided my children with a strong base and contributed to their success in college and their current careers. Both of my daughters have their masters degrees, and my son is currently serving his country in the Air Force and working on his bachelor’s degree. Parent involvement in fundraising activities provide an example to students of what hard work and teamwork can accomplish. The friendships that we developed working alongside other families will last a lifetime. Martin C. Garcia, Martin C. Garcia Accountancy Corporation, Certified Public Accountant

​​St. Rose-McCarthy School provided a solid academic experience for my two brothers and two sisters. In addition, helped steep them in the Catholic faith. As an athlete in the public schools, I had the pleasure of playing for Coach Frank Cardoza in the C.Y.O. football program. From Coach Cardoza, I learned how to play the right way and to compete fiercely. As an administrator in the Hanford Elementary School District, I had a warm personal and professional association with Sister Theresa who was then Principal. Together we coordinated special services for children attending St. Rose-McCarthy School who would have otherwise gone to public schools. In short, I have fond memories and deep respect for the school. Joe Simas, Former Superintendent Hanford Elementary School District

I was blessed and am still very grateful that my parents made the decision to send me to St. Rose-McCarthy Catholic school beginning in Kindergarten. Looking back, I couldn't have asked for a better start to my educational career! It laid the groundwork that I was able to rely on throughout high school and college. I also made friends to last a lifetime, and still regularly communicate and get together with the classmates I had there. My time as St. Rose McCarthy was a valuable piece of my foundation as a Catholic, husband, father, and friend. Luke Robinson, Robinsons Interior, St. Rose-McCarthy Parent
