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.”
I am pleased to welcome you to our community, a place where gifted education is more than a focus on academic ability; we understand that giftedness also includes a student’s social and emotional strengths. Ours is a school where a child’s curiosity and critical thinking are nurtured and the opportunity to stretch his or her academic abilities is part of our daily experience. Watching the interactions between students and teachers in classrooms with small class sizes, you see our faculty empowering learners to find their voice and encouraging them to share their ideas.
Roeper graduates attend and thrive in the most selective colleges and universities throughout the country. Our school community fosters attitudes, values, and strategies that prepare students for lives of leadership and service – Roeper students can be seen working with NGO’s around the world, supporting efforts to strengthen our cities, and serving as leaders in medicine, engineering, law, computer science, the arts, education, and public service.
The information you find on our website will provide a window into the life of our School. But to truly appreciate the mentoring relationships our faculty form with our 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 to meet our faculty and students. See for yourself the difference The Roeper School can make for your child.
