Learn more about Roseville Community Charter School.


The mission of Roseville Community Charter School is to develop within scholars the character and discipline required to achieve academic excellence in high school, college, and beyond. Our school's mission is rooted in the belief that all children can learn and achieve at high levels when provided with high-quality leaning experiences in a challenging and supportive environment. We strongly believe that one's background should not limit their access to an outstanding education that lays the foundation for admission to and success in college. Thus, it is our daily work to prepare every scholar for academic excellence in high school, college, and within a 21st century global society.


RCCS Instructional practices are rooted in our Instructional Framework that is aligned to the Charlotte Danielson Teacher Evaluation system. Planning and Preparation, Classroom Environment, Instruction and Professional Responsibilities are the four categories that encompass our instructional practices. RCCS uses Wit and Wisdom and components of Writer's Workshop with an extended literacy block which enables each teacher to facilitate three guided reading groups daily. Students work in small groups for Guided Reading instruction and independently during learning station time, work whole group, small group, and/or independently during direct instruction. We continue to implement the Eureka Mathematics program, Cognitive Guided Instruction (CGI) for all scholars in grades K-4, and small group instruction methods are also utilized. During all subject areas, students can be observed engaged in classroom discourse, use of the discussion technique of "turn and talk" to promote critical thinki

All teachers receive training on Eureka, the school's math program which was first implemented in 2015-2016. Additionally, representatives from each grade level convened over the summer to revise the literacy curriculum to add supplemental programs such as Explode the Code and Wordly Wise to build phonics and vocabulary. Additionally, all teachers have received responsive classroom training. Teachers also receive Wit and Wisdom training, a literacy program that was implemented in 2017-2018. There are early dismissal days built into the calendar, so that teachers receive on-going training on the curriculum and on-going professional development.


At RCCS , we are committed ensuring that the scholars who need individualized educational programs, receive the programming, materials, and resources they need to be successful in school. In support of this, RCCS has two intervention teachers, allowing us to focus our efforts on early literacy and math intervention. We have two ESL teachers to support our growing population of English Language Learners. We also have a full-time Child Study Team (onsite) complete with a LDTC, School Psychologist, and Social Worker. In addition RCCS has Math and Literacy coaches, as well as two Directors of Curriculum and Instruction for grades K-2 and 3 and 4.


To promote healthful behavior in the school, the school is committed to encouraging its students to consume fresh fruits, vegetables, low fat milk and whole grains. The school is also committed to encouraging students to select and consume all components of the school meal.


Through-out the school year we have over twenty family events. Some events include Literacy and Math Game Night, Music and Art Shows, Hispanic and Black History events plus many more. Parents are encouraged to be active participants in their child's learning and are provided with opportunities to do so. Parent committees have been implemented where parents are able to volunteer to lead school events. In addition, every class has a "class parent" and a Parent University Workshop series is implemented every January to June to teach parents and give them the information/skills to support their children at home.


Roseville Community Charter School is located in the St. Rose of Lima building in Newark. We have a multi-purpose room called Community Hall. Community Hall is where we have breakfast, lunch, recess, and family events. We have an art, music, Spanish/technology room.


Family-Staff Communication - Because RCCS provides a different kind of educational program than many other schools, you may have questions about your child's daily classroom work and his or her progress towards learning standards. We encourage you to send notes or emails, schedule conferences, phone school staff and attend school functions in order to fully understand your child's educational experience and progress and provide information that may be helpful for your child's teacher. Families are also welcomed to visit classroom as long as an appointment is made with your child's teacher in advance. RCCS provides information through a monthly newsletter, the RCCS website, REMIND 101 and letters home in both Spanish and English. Uniform Policy - RCCS enforces a Dress Code to create a sense of community and to ensure that scholars focus on learning instead of clothing. Clothing and accessories that could create disruptions or disorder or that do not conform to standards of health, safety, and cleanliness are not allowed. RCCS has mandatory student uniform policy. The dress code applies during all school days and during all school-sponsored events. It has been adopted to improve the educational environment for all students.
