Principal at Rosemary Elementary School - Grades TK-5
Join a leadership team committed to purposeful student learning that encourages creative problem-solving, a growth mindset, and collaborative thinking!
Grounded in our core values of Compassion, Integrity, Reflection, Courage, Leadership, and
Excellence, which are rooted in the EL Education Model, Rosemary School is breaking the mold of the
traditional learning culture. Approximately 500, predominantly Latino, socio-economically disadvantaged
students are served. We profoundly believe that ALL students deserve a rich, engaging and rigorous
education. Our students work on developing character and intellect through learning expeditions in
language arts, math, STEM, and the arts. Units of curriculum begin with guiding questions and progress
through a carefully sequenced set of standards-aligned lessons that connect to real-world problems,
involve students in original research and critical thinking, and often lead students into the world to collect
data, participate in service, and apply their learning. Our mission is to provide the environment,
experiences, and support necessary to develop students who become leaders of their own learning and
agents of change in their community.
At Rosemary, we are committed to creating meaningful partnerships across our local community and
engaging students in research-based, innovative, and joyful learning. Our staff and families are excited
about our partnership with EL Education (year 2) and are working collaboratively towards our shared
vision of transforming to a student-centered model grounded in character development, academic
excellence, and high quality work. Please see CUSD Rosemary Expeditionary Learning video to listen
to some of our staff and students speak to this vision. We invite those not familiar with EL Education to
learn more here.
