Homes for sale near Rosemont School in Calgary. 

Rosemont School is located in northwest Calgary, near Confederation Park. It was built in 1959; an addition in 1966 nearly doubled the size of the building.

 An exterior renovation in 2017 brought new energy-efficient windows and enhanced insulation and siding. Our naturalization area is a work in progress. During the exterior renovation, trees and shrubs near the school were cut down with a view to regrowth over four to six years. Subsequent landscape remediation and parent support make this area important as an outdoor classroom and a community retreat. 

Our students walk to school, are driven to school, or take the bus to school. Most students stay for lunch. Rosemont Community Childcare (private operator) runs a before- and after-school program onsite. The community is highly supportive of the school.  The Rosemont School Council (RSC) and the Rosemont Fundraising Society (RFS) give parents the opportunity to be active in school decisions and contribute to student success.

What is it that makes Rosemont School a great place for learning? 

This question is sometimes asked by prospective families. Some parents who have chosen Rosemont as the school for their child/children have provided the following thoughts:

  • The small student population creates a strong feeling of community. Staff members know all the students and students know all the staff members. Parents are active in the learning community as volunteers and support the RSC and RFS. They feel connected to the learning community.
  • The approach to learning, with a strong academic focus, is a good fit for families.
  • The program enhancements funded by RFS provide rich experiences for students (residencies, activities, presentations, resources).
  • The diverse range of activities provided through the physical education program (inline skating, swimming, Canadian climber) engages students.
  • Biannual outdoor school experience for students in grades 5 & 6.
  • The student leadership opportunities enhance connections between students K-6.

Rosemont is a UNESCO candidate school

Our school is part of the UNESCO Associated School Network.  Our teachers work with related organizations and teachers from other UNESCO schools in Alberta, Canada, and throughout the world.  Our work connects with UNESCO's Four Pillars of Education:  Learning to Know, Learning to Do, Learning to Be, and Learning to Live Together.  

As we demonstrate our understanding of global perspectives and achieve our school learning goals, we will earn membership status.

Combined-grade (Multi-aged) Classrooms at Rosemont School

What is multi-aged education?

Multi-aged education is a practice that has been an option for schools since the introduction of graded education in Canada. Here at Rosemont, our multi-aged classrooms are the combination of grades 2 & 3 and grades 4 & 5. Multi-aged classes are not a split of grades; they are a combination of grades.

Why do we have multi-aged classes at Rosemont School?

Organizing our students is determined by a variety of factors including our physical space, our student population in each grade, and, most importantly, the learning needs of our community. We have 10 classrooms to serve the needs of approximately 220 students in seven grades (K-6).  In many cases, we have too many children for one class and not enough children for two classes.  Deciding to multi-age grades 2/3 and grades 4/5 has given students the opportunity to work with a variety of classmates and has given teachers the opportunity to work in teams, intentionally designing learning opportunities that are student-centered and personalized. Multi-aging at Rosemont serves our learning community well. 

How does this approach benefit my child?

Research has highlighted the benefits for both students and teachers in multi-aged classrooms.  They include more comprehensive, child-responsive curriculum practices that consider the understandings, capabilities, and dispositions that children need to be successful learners and successful adults. Research also reports that students in multi-aged classrooms show increased self-esteem, more cooperative behavior, better attitudes toward school in general, increased pro-social behavior, and enriched personal responsibility.

The research found that when using standardized tests, students in multi-aged classrooms did as well or better than those in single-grade classes in math, language, science, and social studies. It also found that students in multi-aged classes performed better in the areas of independence, responsibility and study habits, and had more positive attitudes toward school.

How will the curriculum be addressed?

A common question families have often focused on how the curriculum is addressed in multi-aged settings. An important aspect of Alberta’s Programs of Study (and many other jurisdictions) is the spiral framework of learning. Within this framework, programs of studies at different grade levels have similar outcomes. As an example, in the mathematics program of study, the outcome of addition in present throughout the grades, with specific expectations that differ (grade one is adding to 20, grade two is adding to 100, grade three is adding to 1000,… grade six is adding 0.001 to 1 000 000 including the order of operations).  While the specific learner expectation increases at each grade level, the outcome of addition is the same.  Another example is in science. Our science program of study comprises engineering, life, physical, and earth sciences. In a grades 2/3 class, the work of engineering science would be taken up in building structures that can float and are waterproof with extensions of comparing the effectiveness of the building materials. All our programs of studies have common themes and outcomes that lend themselves well to the multi-aged classroom.  Teachers are highly aware of the work addressed last year.  They work in teams to build on that work and they use our experiences this year to inform our plans for next year.

Homework

Parents are encouraged to discuss their child’s daily learning tasks and review together with any activities, projects, books, or assignments that are brought home. Parental interest in school work is important and can be a motivational factor in a child’s success. Homework, done well, helps children develop responsibility and self-direction in studies. Most schoolwork is designed to be completed in school time; from time to time, unfinished work will be sent home for completion. Please discuss the duration and frequency of homework with your child’s teacher.

It is expected that all students read with an adult or independently, and review basic math skills daily. Research is clear that reading to and with your child builds foundational literacy skills. Use the pictures to predict the story; ask what might happen next; have your child recall the story using the frame: first, next, then, finally. Pre-reading and post-reading conversations are as important as the reading itself. Using mathematics in everyday life to organize toys, prepare food, or in the context of current events helps children understand math in their world.  Board games are a great way to enjoy math and reading in while learning important social skills.  

Services for Students with Complex Learning Needs and English Language Learners

Students who present with complex learning needs or who are English language learners are supported in our school by our student support team, which includes: administrators, our resource teacher, our classroom teachers, and our Area 3 student services support specialists, along with designated education assistants. This team is responsible for supporting teachers in differentiating classroom instruction, as well as accessing additional resources and services for students, as deemed necessary through regular reviews at our school learning team meetings.
