Academics

girls with 3D printerRoselawn Condon students are prepared to be innovative thinkers. Using a block schedule approach, we focus on all areas of instruction: math, reading, science, and social studies. One unique academic feature of our schedule is our science program. All students in grade 4-8 will have 90 minutes of science instruction daily in addition to math and reading.

Roselawn Condon teachers embed technology into daily instruction. The building houses three mobile computer carts and one stationary lab for technological instruction. Each classroom contains at least four computers, internet access to educational sites and programs, a mounted, interactive overhead projector, and a DVD player to supplement classroom activities and lessons. Classrooms are provided with Smartboards for interactive learning.

Students at Roselawn Condon utilize a number of interactive computer programs, software and tutorials to enhance instruction. Some of these programs include: Superkids, Renaissance Learning, and Defined STEM.

The teaching staff at Roselawn Condon utilizes an eclectic approach to teaching and learning. Teachers use Kagan Cooperative learning structures, STEM designed lesson-planning and other methods of instruction, proven in data, to actively engage students and increase student achievement.
