Miss New Jersey and former Roland Rogers’ student, Cierra Kaler-Jones, visited the school on Tuesday, September 30th. Cierra was greeted by enthusiastic kids with thought-provoking questions and open ears. She was able to speak about determination and hard work, her journey to Miss New Jersey and Miss America, empowerment through the arts, and about goal setting. She visited with her favorite teachers, who still kept copies of her work as examples for their students. After her talk, she was bombarded with hugs and high fives.

Welcome To Roland Rogers Elementary School
Climbing to A Higher Level of Achievement
Focusing on “Student Achievement” is the number one goal of the faculty, staff and administrators of the Roland Rogers Elementary School. Roland Rogers has approximately 546 students enrolled and 84 faculty and staff members. The school educates students in grades kindergarten to sixth, through the academic offerings in the four disciplines: math, English language arts (ELA), science / health and social studies. We also offer world language, physical education, art education, music education, technology and library skills to all students. Our special instructional programs include: English Language Learners, GEM (Galloway Enrichment Model), Special Education, and basic skills – Intervention program.
Academically, Roland Rogers’ continues to make great strides toward increasing student achievement. Within one year, Roland’s statewide academic achievement peer percentile increased from 37% to 85%! Roland’s academic performance is very high compared to its peers. In the Spring of 2013, our student growth percentage was reported as being 100% and is considered very high when compared to schools across the state. In the spring of 2013, we met our ELA target with an overall proficiency percentage of 79.5%. We exceeded our 2015-2016 math performance target that was established by the state with an overall proficiency percentage of 83.4%.
At Roland Rogers we pride ourselves in working towards providing a Bully-Free climate, parent volunteer programs and an environment where students are guided toward becoming good citizens and contributing members of the school and community. Our students have eagerly participate in fundraisers which support various charitable organizations such as; Heart Association, JDRF, Leukemia & Lymphoma, Stephen Stiller Foundation, Beacon Church’s food drive, Tracy House, Roland’s toy drive and The Atlantic City Rescue Mission and in 2014 we raised over $10,000 for St. Baldricks!
In the Spring of 2014, Roland Rogers was recognized by the New Jersey Department of Education & ERIC as being a top performing Professional Learning Community School. Working within a professional learning community collaborative model, our teachers are afforded opportunities to consistently plan together and examine the many aspects which contribute to student achievement. We look forward to continuing our academic and social successes – but we cannot accomplish this by ourselves…we need you, our parents! Our parents and community volunteers play an enormous role in our school so please get involved and help us help your child succeed!
