Welcome to The Roeper School!
Through these pages you will have the chance to visit a unique coeducational school community for gifted children in preschool through grade 12 with campuses in Bloomfield Hills and Birmingham, Michigan.
The Roeper School is an environment where curiosity and critical thinking are nurtured and academic rigor is valued. Yet, Roeper stands apart from other schools by providing a wonderful balance between this academic rigor and a deep understanding of the importance of social and emotional growth and development. Watching the interactions in small classrooms you see teachers empowering students to find their voice and encouraging them to share their ideas.
Founded by educational pioneers George and Annemarie Roeper in 1941, The Roeper School continues to be guided by its original goals. The Roepers created a child-centered school that respects the thoughts of each child while providing a rigorous learning environment and curriculum that helps students to become internally motivated and focused on making the world a better place.
At Roeper, we care deeply about the needs of the whole child; we understand the importance of these formative years, and nurture and challenge children at every stage and grade. We believe, as our co-founder Annemarie Roeper said, “that the core purpose of education is to empower children to become independent thinkers and compassionate citizens of an interconnected world.”
Roeper graduates attend and thrive in the most selective colleges in the country. More importantly, our school community fosters attitudes, values, and strategies that prepare students for lives of leadership and service – Roeper students are community learners and leaders.
Enjoy your online tour; the information you find on our website will give you a glimpse inside The Roeper School. But to truly appreciate the connections our teachers make with students, the passion we have for teaching and learning, and the depth of inquiry that takes place in our classrooms, you need to experience The Roeper School first-hand. I invite you to contact us and arrange a campus visit. Come meet our faculty and students. See for yourself the difference The Roeper School can make for your child. I look forward to seeing you soon.
