Roots PCS (District)


Roots PCS (District)


Our school is designed to facilitate organized activity using open spaces which are strategically divided. Students are grouped in a multi-grade fashion so they can grow and develop naturally as siblings do in a family; the younger children learn skills faster and the older children acquire a sense of responsibility and maturity along with advanced academic skills. In this simulated family, homeroom teachers remain with the group as the group advances in grade: Pre-Primary (3-5 years old), 1st - 4th grades, or 5th - 8th grades. Our motto is “Youth are the roots of change and exposure is the key to the intelligence”. Roots, therefore provides its’ students with a stimulating academic curriculum of language arts, math, social studies, science, music, art and physical education. The goal is to enable students to become successful, lifelong learners and valuable, contributing agents of change in our global community.
