Roxboro Elementary School
Hello from the Roxboro Elementary Staff in Cleveland Heights, Ohio! Roxboro Elementary is a candidate school for the Primary Years Programme. Roxboro Elementary is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools have a common philosophy – a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education – that we believe is important for our students. This is our 3rd year implementing the transdisciplinary program, and we are seeking authorization from an IB verification team in 2014.
Roxboro Elementary is one of seven elementary schools in the Cleveland Heights- University Heights City School District. Just over 400 students from diverse backgrounds attend Roxboro. Many Roxboro families have lived in this area for years and have had multiple generations of children attend our school.
The Roxboro community is rich in culture. Our students represent at least 20 different nationalities and some of our families are immigrants from different countries around the world. Roxboro engages students in multi-cultural experiences in the classroom including learning activities with our sister schools in China and Liberia.
Roxboro’s curriculum consists of integrated language arts, science, social studies and math lessons. The students participate in physical education, library, music and art. The RoxARTS Committee’s Artists-in-Residence program has given Roxboro students many rich experiences in the arts over the years by helping integrate grade-level content skills with various performing and fine arts from artists in the area. Roxboro also provides its student Chinese instruction as its world language.
We welcome the opportunity to partner with you in the development of your child!
