Welcome to the Rosedale Union School District!

  • Dr. John G.

We are a team of dedicated board members, talented teachers, committed support staff, administrators, involved families, and supportive community members, working in partnership to strengthen educational excellence for our students.

    The Rosedale Union School District’s success is directly connected to a dedicated and talented staff, active and strong parental involvement, and a supportive and generous community. As a California Gold Ribbon, California Distinguished School and National Blue Ribbon recipient school district with a long tradition of excellence in education, the Rosedale Union School District values a system of continuous improvement that permeates every aspect of its work in order to become a center of educational excellence. We are committed to providing a challenging curriculum, skilled instruction, and a learning environment that responds to individual student academic needs. Our work is guided by research and the belief that every student is capable of attaining high levels of educational achievement in preparation for meeting the rigorous demands of the twenty-first century. We truly believe in our motto, Where Learning is Lasting.

    We believe in the unlimited potential of our students by respecting and developing their unique learning styles and interests. We set challenging and demanding expectations for performance and support all students to achieve high standards. We foster a culture of civility where students and adults are treated with fairness, are respected for their contributions and are celebrated for their successes. We believe in using evidence collected to guide decisions and to improve student learning, differentiate instruction, and promote social, emotional and physical growth.

    Our work together requires teamwork, collaboration, and dedication. We believe in the value of collaboration and communication. We believe that commitment to and implementation of continuous learning lead to improved student performance. To achieve this, we believe in the power of personal connections and relations between staff, students, parents and the community.
