ROLLING HILLS PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOL
The mission of Rolling Hills Public Charter School is to develop educated and engaged citizens through high expectations for student behavior and academic success in a small, safe, structured environment.
In September 2005, Rolling Hills Public Charter School opened after receiving its charter from the Idaho Charter School Commission the previous year. Currently, the school serves students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. Rolling Hills subscribes to the belief that a school with a low threat of bullying and harassment can accelerate the learning of students. Strong character education is evident throughout the school and the attributes of responsibility, reliability, thoroughness and kindness are apparent in all aspects of the school program. The school’s culture fosters high academic achievement as evidenced in the school’s strong performance on state assessments and student performance in the classrooms.
At Rolling Hills Public Charter School, we believe that learning occurs when:
learners are expected and encouraged to learn
learners see the connection between what they learn and the real world,
learners are actively engaged in purposeful tasks,
activities are integrated and meaningful,
all learners have advanced learning opportunities,
learners work individually and as members of a group,
learners are supported with coaches, mentors, and advocates,
challenged learners have an individual plan, and support is an intrinsic part of the educational program,
learners internalize that what they learn and do in school makes a positive change in the community,
learners see themselves as part of the community and find ways to serve the community.
Focus on Kindness
Rolling Hills employs a character education plan with a focus on kindness and zero tolerance of teasing, taunting, bullying, gossip and negative peer pressure. The focus of empathy and respect develops virtuous citizen leaders. Our school leadership, teachers and staff are committed to making school a safe place for the children entrusted to our care. The character education method uses a school-to-work emphasis to make the behavior expectations relevant to the real world. We also believe that a kind environment should be extended through the potentially tumultuous junior high years.
