An independent Preschool through Grade 12 school for gifted students.

My Roeper Story is about enhancing knowledge of all things; not just subject material. It’s not just a normal high school.
It’s the reason I became a time-management pro, or the reason I use a planner daily, or am a stickler on double-checking my work. It made me unafraid to ask questions if I wasn’t completely confident in the material. It showed me that the teacher-student relationship truly reflects in your understanding of that subject. My entire high school was a positive, motivating force for me to be a good person, a good student, and now, a good employee. The different levels of independence at Roeper transformed me early on into a business-minded, success-driven individual.
On my first introduction, I was interviewed as a young adult; as an individual who was looking to build on their educational gift. I was seeking guidance on how to use the talents that were given to me. By graduation, I wanted to map out my steppingstones, leading to some contribution to society after I completed my education. My Roeper mentors took my intense focus on the future very seriously – from my first to the last. I could not thank them enough for pushing me and expressing confidence in my learning ability. To me, Roeper is much more than a normal high school; it’s a place where you can gain knowledge about different cultures, develop life skills, practice teamwork, and learn how to communicate effectively and articulate your own opinions. Roeper was my life coach.
