School Year 2018-19
As CRCSD first middle school magnet school, Roosevelt Creative Corridor Business Academy is learning as it grows into its second year.
At RCCBA, students are taking their learning to another level. Students are using the design process, to pitch, create, refine a project. This video showcases a language arts project. RCCBA students created a project to teach elementary students. Students had assistance from community partners to refine their ideas and will create a final piece to share with the community at an upcoming project showcase.
Thoughts from Kate Riley - RCCBA Teacher
“I think elective block classes are really awesome experience for students because they provide a high level of choice for them and high interest, they are very engaging and they help to well round their education in a way that prepares them for the work force and for other areas of life that traditional schools cannot provide for.”
“I like teaching them because they are a lot of fun. It gives me the opportunity to teach things that I normally wouldn’t get a chance to that I am passionate about and then when the kids see that passion hopefully resonates and wears off on them too."
“It makes me feel like a leader because I am helping the 6th Graders at RCCBA. We are helping them out, choosing their second semester block, helping them find the classes that they would like to have to learn.”
-Piper, 8th Grader
