About Roan Forest
School Mascot: Trailblazers
School Colors: Khaki/Blue
Motto: Trailblazers Today...Leaders of Tomorrow
Throughout history there have been individuals who have led the way in exploration, business, medicine, education, government, science, technology and the arts. These trailblazers have improved the lives of many and changed the future for the better. These are the individuals who have inspired us and transformed our nation and the world.
As we begin a new school year our mission is to provide a quality education in a caring environment for the trailblazers of tomorrow. It is our children who will lead the way in the future. We know that the journey begins with us.
An Idea. . . that for the sake of academic excellence, greater fairness, and higher literacy, elementary and middle schools need a solid, specific, shared core curriculum in order to help children establish strong foundations of knowledge, grade by grade.
What is Core Knowledge?
The Core Knowledge sequence is a detailed outline of specific content to be taught in language arts, history, geography, mathematics, science, and the fine arts. Core Knowledge addresses diverse peoples and cultures and is built upon year after year to help prevent gaps in learning.
