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 solution would also have to be appropriate for kindergarten through fifth-grade students, enhance classroom instruction, and cater to ELs. Read LRSD's Story

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 and effective, scalable program that could advance the skills of ELLs through independent study with a response –to-intervention (RTI) approach. Read BCPS's Story
I believe that without the Rosetta Stone solution we would not have seen success with our EL students during the 2011-12 academic year.

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 the having to acquire full-time teaching staff. The looked to blend online resources with virtual classrooms to meet the requirements of Texas to award credit for language courses. Read Guthrie's Story
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 3rd–12th grade students which would differentiate instruction for gifted students, allowing them to progress at their own pace and accommodating students with different learning needs. The solution also needed to serve as the primary instruction tool when language teachers were unable to attend school. Read ESA's Story
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. Read Trinity School's Story
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.
