Educating children age 4 through grade 6, Rossman School in Creve Coeur is dedicated to discovering and nurturing that which makes each child one-of-a-kind. In a small, safe and supportive school community, students are known well and thrive as they are challenged and stretched by an unparalleled educational program emphasizing strong academics and character development. The first step in a cohesive eight-year elementary education, Rossman's Junior Kindergarten program offers a play-based exploration of the world around us. Focus on discovery, high-level thinking, creative problem solving, and observation lays the foundation for a lifetime of learning. Rossman Juniors also enjoy the advantages of a premier elementary program.
Nestled on a 20-acre campus, Rossman implements a stimulating curriculum that inspires a love for learning while providing a solid foundation in language arts, mathematics, and specialty subjects - art, music, physical education, science, Spanish, and social studies. The school's thoughtfully designed program teaches children how to learn and equips them with skills that future leaders need.
With one class per grade level, Rossman offers a small, intimate community that feels like family and a warm, nurturing environment that feels like home. Rossman's team-teaching model provides different perspectives and approaches to each child's learning. Two full-time homeroom teachers work together to plan, deliver and assess instruction. This also gives students two teachers to connect with and to support them when needed. Teachers' personal relationships with each child and the strong partnership between the school and parents lead to graduates who are academically well-prepared, thoughtful, motivated and self-confident.
