PASADENA – In an effort to learn more about The Rosemary School, Rosemary Children’s Services’ non-public and private school for young women grades 7 – 12, Pasadena Unified School District Superintendent Jon Gundry, School Board President Renatta Cooper and School Board Member Tom Selinske visited The Rosemary School and met with members of the Education Committee.
The Rosemary School, certified in 1996 by the California Department of Education and accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) in 2010, helps adolescent girls with significant behavioral disorders, including violent outbursts, impulse control difficulties and distrust of adult caregivers. The Rosemary School, a non-public school, promotes the achievement of emotionally, mentally, and scholastically disadvantaged teen girls in grades 7 to 12.
“We are grateful to Superintendent Jon Gundry, School Board President Renatta Cooper and School Board Member Tom Selinske, for taking the time to learn more about the programs and special education services offered by The Rosemary School,” said Greg Wessels, Executive Director for Rosemary Children’s Services. “We appreciate the commitment the Pasadena Unified School District has shown to support the foster youth in our district, and at the Rosemary School.”
Working with credentialed special education teachers, teacher’s aides and involved parents, each student at the Rosemary School follows her Individualized Education Program (IEP) with goals and objectives that meet their own needs. The Rosemary School’s vocational program offers courses in independent living skills, including paid internships, resume development, computer skills, interviewing skills, banking, and budgeting. The Rosemary School’s goal is to help teen girls at risk of dropping out of school succeed academically and gain the vocational skills needed for a self-sufficient life.
