Roxbury is a Higher Order Thinking School (HOTS) and Positive Discipline School. Through implementation of the HOTS approach, we are providing students with outstanding exposure to visual, musical, and kinesthetic arts, infusing the arts into all academic areas, and fostering greater student engagement and voice.
Our staff members are caring, dedicated, and highly-qualified. They differentiate instruction to provide support and challenge to students, based on their needs and strengths. Staff members take part in ongoing professional development to share best practices and improve their pedagogy.
We have active parent participation in school improvement (e.g. Roxbury Organization of Parents and Educators, School Governance Council, Building One Community POWER Parents, Hispanic Parents). We work closely with community organizations to serve our students and families, particularly Boys & Girls Club / Yerwood Center and Building One Community.
