Our Academics

The core Curriculum at Roberto Clemente Charter School includes: language arts; math; science; social studies; health and physical education; art, and theater; computers; ESL (English as a Second Language); and special education.

Literacy

Students participate in a daily 90-minute reading lesson during which students are grouped by ability level, not grade level. Students reading on a first grade reading level participate in the Reading Roots program which focuses on letter sounds and phonemic awareness, decoding/word recognition, and fluency. Students reading on a 2nd through 5th grade reading level participate in the Reading Wings program, which teaches clarifying and advanced comprehension skills in both information and literature texts.

Writing

All RCCS students receive 40 minutes of uninterrupted academic Spanish instruction every day. Through reading and writing instruction, Roberto Clemente Charter School elementary students are working to become bilingual and bi-literate.
