Rosedale Baptist School uses the A Beka Book curriculum in the kindergarten classrooms and the elementary grades because we believe it is the best curriculum used in the primary classroom today. A Beka’s phonics-based approach to reading has stood the test of time and has proven to be the best possible foundation for a lifetime of learning. Kindergarten students enrolled in A Beka programs often read up to a second grade level upon kindergarten graduation.
Students form most of their basic beliefs, concepts and life principles before they reach the secondary level of education. At the elementary school level, great emphasis is placed on the fundamentals of education: English, spelling, reading , mathematics, science, social studies and Bible are taught in grades 1 – 6. Music, poetry, art, creative writing, penmanship, physical education, computers and Spanish are also an important part of the program. Concerned teachers, informed parents and stimulating homework assignments are the rule, not the exception.
High standards characterize our elementary program. It is our wish to instill in all students a great desire to use their abilities to the fullest extent possible and not settle for anything less than their very best. All of this takes place in a warm Christian atmosphere where children are nurtured and encouraged.
