Founded more than 50 years ago, it is the only school serving 3 to 12-year old children in the area. It provides hope to families seeking a better life. But it is a challenge for some who are unable to afford the mandatory textbooks their child needs to thrive.
This community was never wealthy, but has undergone significant economic hardship after the largest employer in the region, an aluminum manufacturing company, closed.

Walls added to previously open classrooms
The school recently refurbish the previously open classrooms with walls that now keep out the elements, wildlife, and vandals. This was made possible by a gift from the late Mavis Wilson-Lumsden.
The school opened a computer laboratory complete with ceiling fan and an air conditioning unit. There are plans to add a computer in each classroom.
We are working on building a new building to house a library and community education center offering adult literacy and other training. Donate to this project.
Our Founders Story
Bonnie Martin grew up in the Mount Rosser and attended Mount Rosser Primary school as a child.
In 1989 Bonnie moved with his family the United States. When he returned to the area on vacation and spoke with friends and family, he felt compelled to do something to help. Upon returning to the US, Bonnie founded the nonprofit, MRP Community Inc., with the goal of helping the children in his home town gain the same great education and opportunities he received.
