Curriculum

The curriculum and instructional models used at Rose Academy are based on the programs that we have found successful during our 30 years of offering academic programs. Students are tested, an individualized plan is designed, and students are assigned to learning groups. Instruction is delivered using the center approach which allows for more individualized instruction, frequent change in academic tasks, closer relationships between teachers and students and the elimination of nonproductive work. Testing and portfolio assessments are ongoing so the student’s individual needs can be met consistently. Groups and goals change frequently as skill mastery is obtained.

Our goal is to find the level at which each child is successful and to design instruction to challenge them to master skills to improve all areas. Testing will be updated throughout the year to assess progress and adjust goals and materials. Each student’s academic curriculum is designed around the following components:
