As an authorized International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP) school, Rosewood Elementary is part of a global network of schools committed to developing the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills students need to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world. We have purposefully integrated standards of all content areas into six themes with thirty-six unit planners which encompass all students K4 through 5th grade. The units are spiral and are not repeated in content or activities. As a component of IBPYP, all students at Rosewood are learning French. We offer French Immersion in grades K and 1, and will be growing that program to encompass all grades. The Learner Profile is a major focus within our school and is used as a tool for character development.
The Exhibition is a capstone experience of the PYP for our students. They will study issues fromvarious perspectives, synthesize their learning and communicate it through art, technology, theater, dance, scientific experimentation, oral presentations of research, and avenues.
Challenged based learning to engage and inspire all students to learn at high levels is a focus at Rosewood. We are proud of our teachers; they are embracing technology such as iPads and other softward to develop personal learning plans for our students.
We are thrilled about serving as the new administrators at Rosewood. This school community will shine as we let others see the power of true educational innovation.
