An independent Preschool through Grade 12 school for gifted students.


The Roeper School was founded in 1941 by educational pioneers George and Annemarie Roeper.
After fleeing Germany to escape Nazi persecution, they established a school in Detroit with the goal of educating children to become thoughtful, humane adults. The school moved to Bloomfield Hills in 1946, and in 1956, Roeper focused its mission on educating gifted children, making it the oldest independent school for gifted children in the United States. Roeper added a second campus in Birmingham in 1981, creating learning communities for students from pre-school through Grade 12.

Dreaming of a Different World

School Historian, Marcia Ruff, describes the events that led to the founding of The Roeper School along with the courage and tenacity it took George and Annemarie to actualize their dream.
