Welcome to Rolph Road Public School
Welcome to our school web site. As part of the Toronto District School Board, we value each and every student.
Rolph Road Elementary School, which first opened in 1939, serves students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 and also houses an independently run daycare facility. We provide curriculum enrichment through partnerships with specialists for every class from JK to Grade 6 ( visiting artists and guest speakers). We have an exciting music program, offering vocal instruction, with performance opportunities as well as an Empower Reading program. Students engage in technology regularly, using in class computers, our computer lab, a class set of wireless laptops and seven Smart Boards. Our students also participate in a variety of extra curricular activities, including our participation in a number of inter-school sporting events.
Empower Reading EmpowerTM Reading is a series of evidence-based multi-component intervention programs that were developed by Dr. Maureen W. Lovett and her team at The Hospital for Sick Children (Sickkids). Each reading intervention program has professional development specific to the program. EmpowerTM Reading includes decoding, spelling, comprehension and vocabulary programs that transform children and adolescents with significant reading and spelling difficulties into strategic, independent, and flexible learners. The success of the program is proven through the extensive rigorously designed research conducted by the research team.
