About Roll Hill School

“A Turn-Around School, with College Bound Students”

This is your school: a community learning center (CLC). It belongs to every student, every parent, and every faculty member. Our goal is to create and promote an academically challenging program that fosters each student's social development. Our vision and mission is to provide educational excellence for all.

  • Assisting with homework
  • Making sure your child gets enough rest

  • Joining the Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
  • Actively supporting fund raising
  • Getting involved in the Local School Decision Making Committee
  • Maintaining contact with your child's teacher(s)
  • Contacting the school whenever problems occur


Our vision is one of educational excellence for all. Roll Hill means:

  • R — Reaching each individual's highest academic potential to meet or exceed state standards.

Community Learning Centers

For our schools to transform, our communities must be revitalized. For our communities to revitalize, our schools must be transformed. They are dependent on each other and Community Learning Centers are the link.

What is a Community Learning Center (CLC)?

Schools and the communities they serve are closely linked. Seldom does one succeed without the success of the other. That's why our CLCs support student achievement, enrich and revitalize communities, and maximize the community's return on their financial investment.

We are very proud to be a CLC and a neighborhood anchor. We strive to go beyond academics to focus on the whole child by serving as a hub for community services that are available to all students, their families and the entire community. We are able to offer a variety services thanks to the collaboration and support of our many partners and the committed communities of Westwood and North Fairmount.

Our History

The original Roll Hill building was closed as a school in June 1997. The building was torn down starting in December 2003. New building constructed on the site (2411 Baltimore Ave.) opened in August 2005.
