Our District's Mission

RCSD creates a safe and supportive, inspirational and rigorous, joyful and inclusive environment for all learners

Our Project Based Learning (PBL) Program

Roosevelt students are challenged and engaged in an award-winning Project Based Learning curriculum that helps them develop skills for living in a knowledge-based, highly technological society. Our supportive community of teachers, staff, and parents ensures that students are successful in all aspects of their learning. Roosevelt School’s growing accomplishments are evident in the students' comprehension and understanding of topics, the innovative projects that students lead and produce each year, and its award-winning reading program and curriculum.

Educator Marks More than 20 Years of Making an Impact on Preschool Students. Former Student: ‘She’s still got it’

One of her biggest motivations is making sure the students in her class are ready for kindergarten – not just in academics but getting them ready socially and emotionally as well.

Community, Culture, and Quality are Key, Neighborhood School Parents Say

The parents of students in Redwood City School District (RCSD) are an enthusiastic bunch. They’re thrilled with the way their little loved ones learn – specifically, they credit the teachers, the schools’ respective cultures and value communication from teachers, staff and administration. 

Differentiated Instruction: Meeting the Needs of All RCSD Students

Through differentiation, each child can excel and grow using a more personalized plan based on assessments throughout the school year. Teachers can tailor content, environment, and process to provide a curriculum that works well for a student’s specific needs and learning style.
