The mission of our middle schools is to nurture the development of responsible, thoughtful citizens for life in an increasingly interdependent global society by creating environments in which students are challenged to explore, to create, to make decisions and to actively participate in and be accountable for their learning. Middle school provides an environment that allows transition for students as they move from elementary into high school years. Middle school education builds upon skills acquired in previous learning experiences and provides an opportunity to explore new areas of interest that will give direction for future choices.
Mission Statement: Instruction - Approaches to learning emphasize interdisciplinary instruction, exploration, practical application and cooperative learning. Learning opportunities are presented through a variety of instructional methods. Instruction in the middle school places emphasis on the continued acquisition of basic skills and higher order thinking skills and acknowledges the importance of out-of-school activities on classroom learning. Learning activities begin in areas familiar to the learner and lead to new areas of interest.
Mission Statement: Decision-making - The school program is one in which students learn to accept responsibility for their actions as they grow and mature. Students receive instruction in the process of decision-making through experiences in classrooms, exploratory and cocurricular activities. Reinforcement, direction and guidance are provided through the practice of participatory decision-making.
Mission Statement: Home-school Relations - It is understood that a home-school partnership exists among students, parents, staff and the community. Communication between home and school is necessary for each student's success and learning. Accountability for these expectations is accomplished through a variety of communication methods initiated by parents and staff.
Mission Statement: Evaluation - Elements which comprise an effective middle school are assessed on a regular basis. Student academic and social progress is reported systematically. Evaluation examines the learning process and focuses on attainment of educational outcomes.
The mission of the Rosemount Middle School Athletic Program will be to develop, teach, and inspire our student athletes with sportsmanship, leadership, commitment, teamwork, and integrity.
The vision in each sport will be to develop our student athletes into productive, contributing citizens of our community and society. The emphasis will focus on providing our students a series of experiences, which will promote wholesome and friendly participation, improved playing skills, good sportsmanship, new friends, and better community relationships. The Middle School athletics program will provide athletes with a positive foundation for their development within the program; creating allegiance between the middle school and high school and a positive feeling of school loyalty and pride.
