Learning, growing, achieving... The Rosemeade Way

Learning, growing, achieving... "The Rosemeade Way"

Recognized as a small neighborhood school, Rosemeade Elementary is well known as a campus with family traditions and a history of high achievement. More importantly, Rosemeade Elementary's nurturing and supportive environment promotes student growth as well as parent and community involvement, thereby, enhancing the quality of education.

Anchored in tradition of the "Rosemeade Way," the school's foundation and key strategy for success are high expectations for each student. Beginning the first day of school, students are introduced to the "Roadrunner 4Rs" - Be respectful, reliable, resourceful, and responsible. Modeled by faculty, staff, and students, these character traits encourage and challenge all students to develop to their full potential academically, emotionally, socially, and culturally.

With this firm foundation, student achievement flourishes as students are invited to enter the learning at their instructional level. Strong literacy and mathematical skills are reinforced consistently; these are the keys to unlock future career paths. To ensure students' balance, Rosemeade students are encouraged to find causes that instill pride and support their goals and desires to help themselves and others.

Since 2005, the diversity of the campus shows with the number of economically disadvantaged students almost doubling and creating challenges. With these, the staff adapted and adjusted teaching strategies to provide additional support to promote the success of each student. Despite the changes and challenges, Rosemeade continues to excel as demonstrated in its receipt of the Distinguished Performance Award (2012-2013) and the Texas Education Agency Title I Reward School for High Progress (2014-2015).
