On August 31, 1964 Rosewood Elementary School was one of many schools across the state of South Carolina that opened its doors to African American students. Robert and Andrew Fruster, Eugene and Cynthia  Turnipseed, and Beverly Ann, Evelyn, and Pamela Cleveland were the first African American students to attend Rosewood Elementary School.  That day, 50 years ago, meant the end of segregation at Rosewood Elementary School and  the beginning of togetherness - everyone working and learning together.

From the Principal

Welcome to Rosewood Elementary - a neighborhood school committed
to the children of our community for nintey years. As we begin
the upcoming school year, we look forward to an exciting year of
learning for all of our students. Working together, our dedicated
faculty and staff, enthusiastic students, and involved parents and
community members will continue to make Rosewood a special and
unique learning environment. Parents and the community are valuable resources to the children and faculty of Rosewood Elementary. Working together with our parents and the community, we are committed to providing our students a safe, caring, academically challenging and diverse learning environment that will develop productive citizens for a changing world. I encourage each of you to be involved in your child’s education and be a partner with us in your child’s education. Please contact us if you ever have a question or concern so that we may work together for the benefit of our students.

While each school year brings new and exciting challenges,
experiences, and expectations, we look forward to the opportunity
to teach our students and share their successes as they learn and
grow. This year we are excited about new technology opportunities for our students to include new document cameras and webcams for each classroom. As part of our district's digital learning initiative, all of our third, fourth, and fifth grade students will be issued laptops. A great year is in store for us at Rosewood Elementary!
