KIPP Courage College Prep
KIPP Courage College Prep needed a technology program to support the goal of multilinguism for Grades 5-8. Partnering with Rosetta Stone allowed KIPP to complement classroom instruction to strengthen bilingual skills, provide personalized learning in a motivating and engaging environment, and improve performance on the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS).
"Rosetta Stone has allowed us the flexibility to adequately meet the multilingual needs of all of our students."
- Eric M. Schmidt, School Leader, KIPP Courage College Prep
Little Rock School District
Little Rock School District (LRSD) needed a language-learning solution to support a summer program focused on building language proficiency and literacy skills for English Learners (ELs).
"The Rosetta Stone solution allows us to provide the perfect opportunity for our learners to experience self-paced language learning and monitoring for success. Additionally, it allowed the integration of technology and capitalized on student interests."
- Dr. Karen Broadnax, Director ESL Program
Bullitt County Public Schools
Despite seeing a significant spike in the number of English Language Learners (ELLs), Bullitt County Public Schools (BCPS) did not see enough growth to warrant full-time ELL personnel at each school. BCPS sought an effective, scalable program that could advance the skills of ELLs through independent study with a response-to-intervention (RTI) approach.
"I believe that without the Rosetta Stone solution we would not have seen success with our ELL students during the 2011-12 academic year."
- Greg Schultz, Assistant Superintendent, Student Learning Division
Guthrie Virtual School
The Guthrie Common School District needed to find a solution that could offer its 100 students credit for either the two-year or three-year language requirement without having to acquire full-time teaching staff. They looked to blend online resources with virtual classrooms to meet the Texas requirements to award credit for language courses.
"I really think the Rosetta Stone program may provide more opportunities for students to practice speaking the language than they might have in a traditional classroom setting."

Episcopal School of Acadiana
Episcopal School of Acadiana (ESA) needed a language-learning solution for third to twelfth grade students that would differentiate instruction for gifted students, allowing them to progress at their own pace and accommodating for their different learning needs. The solution also needed to serve as the primary instruction tool when language teachers were unable to attend school.
"With the combination of Rosetta Stone and hands-on, small group work, our language teachers were amazed by the improvement in students' pronunciation and fluency levels."
- Anita Huval, Department Chair World Language Program
Trinity Schools needed a world language solution for pre-kindergarten through sixth grade that would provide personalized learning, allowing students to progress at their own pace through self-study. Partnering with Rosetta Stone allowed Trinity School to shift its language program away from a "one-size-fits-all curriculum" to a more individualized approach.
"Language study through Rosetta Stone Classroom allows Trinity School to offer a 21st century approach to learning that enables children to become self-directed, passionate, and engaged global citizens."
- Megan Howard, Director of Teaching and Learning
Baldwin County Public Schools
BCPS has built a curriculum that includes preparing students for the world of intelligent machines and empowering them to participate in the global community through language acquisition. The district sought a technology-based solution to provide students with the opportunity for long-term language learning.
