The Upper School at Roeper offers a unique opportunity for its students.
The humanistic values of Roeper’s founders continue to be the driving force behind the school. Respect for the individual rights and the human dignity of all people encourages cooperation and mutual acceptance among students and staff. Roeper is a place where the ideas and feelings of students are important to the adults in their lives. The result is an environment in which students are free to take educational risks and participate in decision making, an environment in which it is okay to be smart and okay to be committed to learning. Students are encouraged to become increasingly self-directed and independent. They are helped to develop an understanding of and control over their learning process as they develop skills, form concepts, and define ethical and moral issues.
