Introducing Roosevelt School District No. 66 Signature Academies

Beginning with the start of the 21-22 school year, four of RSD's schools launched their new signature academy, focusing on practical learning and tailoring to student interests. The Academy of Global Studies at T.G. Barr is piloting the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme and Middle Years Programme. The Academy of Innovation and Design at C.O. Greenfield is focusing on the use of 3D technology to bring learning to life. The Academy of Inquiry at J.F. Kennedy is pairing classes together to drive student collaboration across grade levels. The Academy of Science and Nutrition at V.H. Lassen is using gardening and cooking to bring school outside the four walls of the classroom. Roosevelt also launched the Online Academy, open to students across Arizona who want the option to continue their primary education virtually.
