The focus behind the success at Rose Avenue School is in the area of teaching and learning. We have transitioned to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) with an emphasis on technology through the implementation of 1:1 devices for all students in grades K-5. We have adopted a new reading/language arts curriculum and continue to use My Math McGraw Hill. In addition, we implement several intervention programs to support students. These include PALS-Teacher Directed Instruction K-3, PASAPORTES K-1 TBE, and SIPPs. The teaching staff at Rose is committed to the process of implementing CCSS and dedicated to higher level thinking and learning for all students. Our teaching staff is collaboratively teaming in the core areas to meet the individual needs of our student population based on their individual needs. Teachers focus on data-driven instruction, assess students formally to monitor student growth in the core areas and meet to analyze student data results monthly to plan instruction and student interventions.

Parents and community members are encouraged to get involved and play an active role in the daily school activities. Understanding the school's educational program, student achievement, and curriculum development assist both school and community in on-going program improvement.
