Rosewood Elementary International school is helping all students develop the world class skills and life and career characteristics of the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate by offering the only authorized International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IBPYP) in the Olde English Consortium area. This area includes York, Chester, Lancaster, Chesterfield, Cherokee and Union counties.
The IBPYP prepares students to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others and have the capacity to participate in the world around them. The teachers at Rosewood focus on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both within and beyond the classroom. By choosing to implement the PYP, we are seeking to develop students’ academic, social and emotional wellbeing, focusing on international-mindedness and strong personal values. The PYP nurtures independent learning skills, encouraging every student to take responsibility for their learning. The program incorporates local and global issues into the curriculum, asking students to look at six related, transdisciplinary themes and to consider the links between them. Students must use each of the world class skills from the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate each year in their IBPYP portfolio and in the culminating Exhibition.
Rosewood is also recognized as a Title I school in our district, which allows us to further support our students and families in areas of identified academic need.
