Letter from the Principal

Dear Ombudsman Roseland Families

I am thrilled to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year. I hope that you had a restful summer and had the chance to spend time with family and friends. We are excited about all that this new school year has to offer and look forward to working with our students and families as we focus on continuous improvement in teaching and learning, and all areas of our school environment.

This year we will renew our commitment to excellence in all that we do, with a resolute expectation that all students can learn and succeed. We will continue to provide students with opportunities to address academic deficiencies, to build numeracy and literacy skills, to make up missing credits, to be college or work force prepared, and to have the opportunity to participate in dual credit courses.

I am excited about all that this new school year has to offer and look forward to working collectively as a school community to ensure that our students are provided with the best educational experience possible to be critical thinkers, responsible citizens, and prepared to be successful in their endeavors after high school. We have to agree that our students must be at the heart of choices and decisions we make, as Ombudsman Roseland is more than just a school to our students. We are an extension of the students’ families and lives, and we are a supportive and caring community where students’ needs are a priority.

On behalf of the administration, teachers, and staff, we all THANK YOU in advance for your support and participation throughout the coming school year.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions and/or concerns.  My door is always open to students and families.


Mrs. Gwendolyn M. Burrel
