Roselands Public School's Mission Statement
In the fall of 1922 Roselands Public School opened its doors to the community. The school is situated on 14 spacious and well-kept acres including our unique “Memorial Grove” where 15 trees and a stone commemorate the 15 Roselands students who perished in World War II.
Modern Day Roselands
Roselands today operates as an environment in which staff, parents and the students themselves contribute to the collective success of the school.

Student Life - Where You Belong
Students at Roselands play a vital role in creating a positive learning environment. The first thing a new student will notice is how many opportunities they have to contribute to school pride. Our sports teams are active and give the students opportunities to discover the right way to compete. Whether it’s cross-country, basketball or track and field, Roselands students compete with energy, enthusiasm, and excellent sportsmanship.
Opportunities for students to make a difference in the world around them are also a major point of emphasis at Roselands. Our different clubs take ownership for identifying and fundraising for good causes. The students themselves plan and execute initiatives that help those in need. They have done everything from running food drives during the holidays to having bake sales to help earthquake victims.
When these different opportunities are combined with a strong, experiential based education system, the result is the kind of engaged student that can be seen all throughout Roselands. Ask our students and they will tell you that Roselands rocks!
WHAT SETS US APART
Authentic experiences and experiential learning are built into all subject matters and programs. Participation in field trips, Scientist in the School programs, and even ballroom dancing give an experience base from which students can better access the curriculum.
The community sees itself represented in the curriculum, programs and culture of the school. Roselands takes pride in its view that a school must be a vibrant embodiment of its community. A few of the ways we do this are through international language classes, parent workshops, and participation with the community in a number of charitable events.
