About

Employment

A Roeper education is characterized by outstanding and profound student-teacher relationships that foster mutual respect.  When children are genuinely offered a voice from young ages, they grow to become adults who will do the same for others.  This belief pervades every practice of the school and arises from our philosophical conviction that equal human rights breeds a valuable sense of justice and interdependence. We emphasize the importance of students doing their own thinking and making their own choices both in and out of the classroom, so that they become active stakeholders in their education and in their communities.
