Roscomare Elementary has a strong sense of community and caring Teachers
The curriculum at Roscomare is set to meet the California Common Core standards, however the method of instruction is a little more progressive- the principal gives teachers a lot of latitude for choosing the style of instruction in their classroom. The school teaches the standards, but also something more than just academics- self confidence, critical thinking, and mutual respect. In addition to regular academics, an active Parent Organization raises funding for enrichment programs like art, music, computer lab, and PE Classes.
The Campus is located in Upper Bel Air and has a small intimate environment. Many parents say that it is very warm and that there is a great sense of community. There is a huge asphault playground with playground equipment at the rear of the school that is nestled within Roscomare Canyon. There is plenty of room for outdoor activities, my only complaint would be that there is no grass.
Students at Roscomare score extraordinarily well on statewide testing. This is a great learning environment and a top Los Angeles Public school.
Roscomare’s attendance boundaries spill over Mulholland in two places (B and D on the map). Students living in Area 1 on the map may choose between attending Roscomare Elementary and Warner Elementary. There are 4 kindergarten classes at Roscomare with about 90 students. On a typical year, school wide there may only be 8 or 10 spots open for lottery for students who live outside the attendance boundaries. Students who live within the attendance boundaries are given preference first.
Roscomare Elementary matriculates to Emerson Middle School. Many parents choose when children graduate Roscomare at that time to make the move to private schools like Mirman, Berkeley Hall, Buckley etc, or try to get admission into Paul Revere Middle School across the 405 in Brentwood which is considered a better middle school than Emerson.
