Roseville has been a growing community since its incorporation in 1909. Did you know that 100 years ago, the city’s population hovered around 4,000 residents? With the city’s daytime population now around 135, 000, our school district is serving more than 11,000 TK-8th grade students in 19 schools. That’s the highest enrollment we’ve experienced to date!
Serving new and existing students means we’re hiring more staff, adding classrooms at our schools, maintaining our existing facilities, while working together, truly as one team, to ensure our students are educated in a safe, academically focused and nurturing environment.
Here a few other updates about our District that perhaps you didn’t know:
Orchard Ranch Elementary is our newest school and is expected to have the highest enrollment of our elementary schools, topping 750 students. The school is located in west Roseville, about a mile from where Pleasant Grove meets Westbrook. We’ve been preparing for growth for more than a decade and we’re pleased to welcome so many new families to our District. Students from Orchard Ranch will eventually transition to Chilton Middle School, located in the Westpark neighborhood of Roseville. Chilton now has the largest class of sixth-grade students. Our west side is booming!
In case you didn’t hear, our school board named the next elementary school over the summer. We’ll expect to add our 20th campus in west Roseville, Riego Creek, to our community of schools by 2023.
What’s the most exciting aspect of this growth? New and expanded programs for our RCSD Champions! All four middle schools will now offer Career Technical Education (CTE) classes, such as Robotics, Coding, Manufacturing, and Production. These classes are offered through a partnership with our local high school district and state grant through an economic and workforce development initiative with the goal of providing students with the knowledge and skills necessary to transition to employment and postsecondary education.
As our community continues to grow, we remain steadfast in our commitment to deliver every student with the opportunity for academic excellence. The growth and demand in Roseville will continue to be met by the district, providing each student with a place to call home at one of our 19 remarkable schools.
