    Academic Knowledge and Skills

    The Academic Knowledge and Skills (AKS) were developed in response to the Gwinnett County Public Schools’ Mission Statement. The AKS represent the Board of Education’s accepted standards for excellence in academic knowledge and skills in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies for students in Gwinnett Public Schools. Curriculum and instruction is tailored for mastery of the AKS for all students. Because the AKS are correlated to state required assessments, this will also ensure that GCPS students are well-prepared for these measurements of achievement. Click here for more information. 


    History of Rosebud Elementary

    The school’s motto is reflective of Rosebud’s historical significance and its commitment to success. Rosebud Elementary School is named after its nominal predecessor, Rosebud School. Rosebud Elementary School was built across the street from the original Rosebud School, organized in 1903 and situated on property now known as 4198 Rosebud Road. The 1.5 acres of land for Rosebud School was donated by Mr. Henry Thomas. Without a deed at the time of Mr. Thomas’ death, the Rosebud School Trustees later purchased the land for $125.00 and were granted a deed in 1929.

    Over the years the Rosebud community has experienced growth and renewal. From the last classes of grades 1-7 in 1938 to the classes of kindergarten through fifth grade in 2008, Rosebud’s name bears a legacy of innovation and pride. The Gwinnet County Board of Education and CEO/Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks saw the need for appropriation for a new school to accommodate the South Gwinnett Cluster’s growth. As Rosebud Elementary School opened its doors to over 1000 students in 2008, a vast difference from the less than 30 in 1938, it will become a beacon of community pride as a partner with parents, businesses, and the community.

    “Anchored in Excellence,” Rosebud Elementary School is focused on learning first for every student, every opportunity, every day to become another one of Gwinnett’s world-class schools.
