The elementary program at Rockwood School uses as a foundation the philosophy that has traditionally been called "Alternative", which includes:
  •  Child centred learning
  •  Activity based, hands-on learning
  •  Thematic and integrated learning
  •  Multi-aged groupings
  •  Family involvement

In addition to these traditional alternative values we also use the following as our foundation:
  •  school priorities in math and language arts
  •  a strong sense of community
  •  integration of the arts
  •  inquiry based learning
  •  integration of technology
  •  promotion of healthy lifestyles
  •  fostering respect for the environment and global citizenship
