Redwood City School District (RCSD) has opened a Mandarin Immersion Transitional Kindergarten (TK) class at the John Gill campus for the upcoming 2019-20 school year
RCSD values using technology to engage the minds of all students across content areas in the process of creating and constructing meaning
They visited classrooms in the STEAM and Mandarin Immersion programs on the John Gill campus as well as Kennedy Middle School and learned about the district's focus on equity in access to education, the sophisticated technology integration across content areas, enrichment opportunities, expertise in English language learning, and the innovative creation opportunities to make learning visible.
RCSD’s classrooms represent the Bay Area’s global workforce as its students speak more than 35 different languages at home including Arabic, Mandarin, Polish, Russian, Samoan, Spanish, and Vietnamese.
Students experience differentiated, complex, enriching, and rigorous learning.
California law requires that the District form a District Advisory Committee, also referred to as a 7/11 Committee, to advise the Board of Trustees in the use of real property no longer needed for school purposes.
Mr. Kyle Brumbaugh, a former teacher, joined RCSD in late November from Foothill College where he served as the Krause Center for Innovation’s Director of Professional Learning Networks.
John Gill Elementary School houses two oustanding RCSD programs.
The Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) program integrates computer science and engineering across all content areas. STEAM at John Gill fosters curiosity, creativity, and collaboration.
Students in RCSD's Mandarin Dual Language Immersion Program attain fluency in communication, reading, and writing in both Mandarin and English. John Gill students are able to continue their K-12 Mandarin Immersion progression at Kennedy Middle School and Wooside High School.
