During the second semester of Early Childhood Education classes, ROP students at West Covina High School participate in Elementary School Class Practicum at San Jose Academy and Orangewood Elementary School. The partnership with these schools provides an opportunity for ROP students to work with children in kindergarten through eighth grade classes. ROP students work one-on-one with children and assist teachers with preparation of class assignments. Students receive first-hand knowledge of the workings of a classroom and insight into the field of education. The students always leave with great learning experiences and a sense of accomplishment.
