Intent

The Rochester Community Schools mission statement requires students be prepared intellectually to deal with and contribute to a demanding, interdependent world by being self-disciplined, analytical and able to draw support from a variety of resources. Our goal is to provide a curriculum which meets students needs and challenges them based on their abilities.

At the elementary level, students are provided opportunities for acceleration, extension, and or additional instruction based on demonstrated performance.  Differentiation takes place within the regular classrooms where specialized instructional strategies can be applied on a daily basis rather than being limited to an identified program.

The Rochester Community Schools provide an extensive curriculum for its elementary students. The diversity of programming exists to accommodate not only individual student needs but to provide a solid basis for continuing education and life.
