Community is central to Rollingstone Community School (RCS).
RCS is a school for OUR community. Creating and sustaining an infant to student to adult to elderly multi-age learning community is at the heart and hub of RCS interaction.
Our students are able to talk openly, communicate meaningingfully, and socialize with the exhuberance of learners. Our classrooms, hallways, and commons are completely comfortable for our students.
As parents, grandparents, and community members we love to watch the children re-creating learning each and every year. We have the best of both worlds with multi-age learning experiences balanced with grade level reading and math foundations.
RCS students are well-rounded little humans! They are respectful of each other’s diverse talents, with a self-confidence and sense of security that brings tears to our eyes as we experience them each being resourceful and responsive for each other.
With RCS, our Rollingstone families are even more connected now. We share a place where the children, youth, and adults of Rollingstone can come together for a wide range of school and community events.
Or close-knit staff is fully empowered to look over the RCS community, crafting educational moments and pathways each and every day. This amazing staff deserves much credit for the meaningful relationships from student to student.
We love our STEAM curriculum as the students soak up stuff outdoors, engage technology, explore art, celebrate music and master the love of, and skills in, reading, writing, thinking, and doing!! RCS shines with a hands-on approach to our community and the wonderful environment around them.
Teachers have a ‘can do’ spirit and parents and community members have a ‘can help’ spirit. With the Rollingstone adults – there is a level of openness and trust — a culture to say what’s on your mind and be respected. RCS is a place to brainstorm, share a common vision, and get involved in our community.
For RCS students opening a book is like an adventure, they immerse themselves in the reader’s world. Each student has the chances to be literate – to LOVE reading, expand skills in writing and speaking, and enjoy connecting with classmates and schoolmates.
