Discover This School
Rooftop strives to be much more than a school. Students, staff, and parents work together to create a respectful, caring community of learners focused on developing the unique strengths of each child. Rooftop's challenging educational program integrates the arts to empower all students to become academic achievers, critical thinkers, and effective problem-solvers. Rooftop's staff and students commit to a pledge of respect which acknowledges the worth and dignity of all of its members: Acceptance and tolerance is a personal decision that comes from the belief that everyone is valuable and worthy of respect.
At Rooftop, talented teachers provide enriched, rigorous standards-based instruction to support the achievement of all students. Rooftop's achievement profile reflects the success of this academic program for its diverse student population. Rooftop's integrated arts and service program provide a gateway to joyful learning. Students discover their gifts and develop their talents through participation. Students are engaged in high achieving, joyful, 21st century learning through a variety of authentic learning opportunities which include: art, gardening, outdoor education, sensory motor integration, computer classes, student government, performing arts, visual arts, newspaper, yearbook, rooftop radio, physical education, and sports teams. Students are encouraged to take positive risks in the pursuit of knowledge and creative expression. The in-depth study of an artist and his/her work are community and culturally based. Students are excited and engaged, and take charge of their own learning. Rooftop's study of jazz is a study of race and the history of African American culture in the US. Family activities and community-based learning (murals, green project, evening family art, media, math, and literacy nights) enable students to express themselves, share learning, relate to others, and contribute their ideas to peers and family. We also hold family nights, community days, and projects that require service and creative effort. Through participation, members of our community gain pleasure from their efforts and recognize the worth of their personal contributions in service to others.
