Dear Imagine Rosefield Family and Friends,
As we continue down the path to excellence, we are committed to providing your child with an education that will prepare them for life in the 21st century. Imagine Rosefield’s vision is for every student to reach his or her full potential and discover the pathways for lifelong success. With that in mind, we are very excited to announce that we have been accepted as a Cambridge International Examinations School! Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) approach, while challenging, applies teaching strategies to fit the needs of all learners. This program allows us to continue to differentiate, so all students will be successful!
CIE will strengthen our already extensive curricular programs with a world renowned reputation for rigorous performance objectives, higher order thinking strategies and authentic assessments. We will begin by incorporating CIE performance objectives, assessment questions and student exemplars in our Math program to kick off the 2016-2017 school year.
In conjunction with CIE, we have identified another valuable resource to ensure we achieve our goals. It is with great pleasure that I announce Imagine Rosefield has joined the Arizona Move On When Ready (MOWR) Initiative as part of the National Center on Education and the Economy’s Excellence For All program. This partnership will provide us with additional resources that will assist us in meeting the challenges students will face in the future.
Additionally, this partnership will go a long way in providing our students who plan on attending the demanding Cambridge program at Imagine Prep Surprise with a seamless transition.
We will continue to use the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards (AzCCRS) to drive our instructional approach, and use the CIE performance objectives to enrich our already thorough Math and Reading programs. Additionally, we feel CIE, with its ample resources, will continue to move us down the successful path on which we are already traveling. Many of our teachers have already attended targeted professional development provided by Cambridge certified instructors.
Regardless of local and state initiatives, CIE will provide us with solid teacher professional development and rigorous learning objectives for our students. We are very excited about this opportunity and believe this new partnership will be a great fit for everyone. More information is available on our website, as well as the Cambridge International Examinations website http://www.cie.org.uk/. Information sessions, in conjunction with future school events, will include roll out plans and provide all stakeholders with updated information.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions about CIE and our future plans.
All the Best,
James Mecca, M.Ed.
Principal, Imagine Rosefield
