English Learner

The California Department of Education supports Local Education Agencies (school districts) to achieve the following goals that focus on helping to close the achievement gap that separates English learners from their native English-speaking peers:


World Language

All four of our middle schools offer a World Language program as well as one of our elementary campuses, Sargeant Elementary.  Students have the opportunity to learn Spanish before they go to high school. Our RCSD World Language program uses the TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling) method of foreign language teaching.  This type of program is different from how many adults learned a foreign language when they were in school. “Our focus at RCSD is on comprehension and conversation.


Gifted and Talented Education Identification

Gifted and Talented Education provides differentiated curriculum and instructional services to students who are identified as having abilities and/or potential for high performance.

The mission of the Roseville City School District is to identify and serve gifted students. We provide rigorous instructional learning opportunities based on grade level standards. It is our goal to provide all students we serve with the tools necessary to reach their full academic and personal potential.


Music Education

We offer music education at all of our school sites!  Education is provided by credentialed music teachers. At our elementary schools, students in grades kindergarten through 5th attend their music class weekly.  There are also opportunities for our 4th or 5th-grade students to participate in additional music opportunities before or after school.

Each of our middle schools offers music as an elective class.  Each site offers different level band classes and other music classes.  


Art Docent

Art is Everywhere

RCSD is proud to offer the Art is Everywhere program to our elementary students.   Volunteers and teachers use the Art is Everywhere program to teach students about artists, art elements, principles, and practical art skills.  If you would like more information about this program, please contact Cami Walker: 




International Baccalaureate

We proudly offer International Baccalaureate (IB) programs at Eich Middle School and Sargeant Elementary.  

The IB program aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.  

Why choose an International Baccalaureate (IB) Education?


Project Lead the Way

Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a program that introduces students to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) concepts and allows them to grow with confidence and interest in these areas.  The program allows them to be problem solvers and employ critical thinking. Project Lead the Way is offered at Stoneridge Elementary school and Chilton Middle School. Every student in grades kindergarten through 5th grade participates in PLTW at Stoneridge, and it is offered as an elective at Chilton.   


Career Technical Education

Career Technical Education (CTE) courses are offered at each of the four RCSD Middle School sites.  These courses teach our students to think critically with applied math and science, develop problem-solving skills, and hone the technical proficiency required of college students and employees in a competitive, global economy.
