Rosedale Traditional Community School is a combination of two former schools with long traditions. Rosedale Elementary School has existed in the Chilliwack community since 1890. For over 3 centuries, RES served thousands of students on its former site on McGrath Road. Rosedale Traditional Middle School came into being in 1961 and has gone from being a Grades 8-10 Junior High School to Grades 7-9 Middle school.
Now the two schools have been combined as the first K-9 school in the Chilliwack School District. What the joint school offers is educational excellence and deep historical roots in the Rosedale Community. The K-9 school will continue its strong presence in the lives of students and community members as it grows and changes in the 21st century.
