It was good for academics due to the coordination of classes with Gilman and Bryn Mawr. Socially it is very clique oriented and lousy. The SAT Prep Class required in grades 9-11 does not make improvements. The required tablets are also ridiculously expensive and are prone to viruses. The college counseling is stellar.

My sister and I attended RPCS, our daughters also attended and now my granddaughter is in her 10th year there. It is a very special place. The academics are superior but also, very importantly, learning how to be a person of good character, a compassionate human being and a contributor to the community are stressed. These are life lessons not taught in many schools and, I believe are vital in life. The school is concerned about the whole child, not merely the academic program. Teachers are readily available to the student and her parents for help and encouragement. The academic program is very challenging, the atmosphere is nurturing. And, you hear a lot of laughter and see a lot of smiles in the halls!

I cannot say enough good things about RPCS and I have several daughters there. My oldest has been there for 13 years and does not want to leave! She entered as a shy child and now she is a leader on the field and in the classroom. She is in a class of great young women who I am sure will be life long friends. Very unique and special school!

RPCS is a wonderful school where the mission is well defined, the faculty focused and the education wonderful. This is a nurturing yet demanding educational environment that promotes individual growth and emphasizes important values for life, but group involvement and cooperation have a high priority. I have been particularly impressed with the faculty and how well they deal with the children. The graduates of this institution are well educated, poised and polished. The facilities have to be as good as those anywhere in this country. I am so happy my children go to this school and cannot say enough good things about it.

Roland Park provides outstanding single sex education. The supportive environment, especially in the lower school, establishes the foot print for success. My daughter has maintained a 40 gpa and is a Division 1 athlete. She would not have found success as easily if she had not had the foundation provided by RPCS.

Roland Park is an outstanding private school in Baltimore. Each teacher cares for each individual student. The bond the girls develop throughout the years is immeasurable. RPCS offers great extra curriculars and pushes each girl to reach their potential in every area of their desire.

This school is great. You really appreciate an RPCS education when you get to college and can hit the ground running. You really see the advantage the school gives you over the years. They prepare excellent writers, leaders, and critical thinkers. You may get tired of the same old classmates, but the variety experiences you have over the years there cannot compare to any other school.

I agree with the people who say that RPCS was great in lower school. After that I got tired of being with the same people. It was like having too many sisters for too long. I wish that I had gone somewhere else for high school.

The lower school is wonderful but because of poor leadership and permissive upper school parents who want to be popular with their children's friends, boarding school is a better option for Baltimore girls. Because the girls are together for so many years, they hold each other back.

RPCS equals excellence in education, and is well worth every tuition dollar spent! My daughter is now in Upper School, and has been challenged at every level. Check out the school's website to see the college choices of the class of 2004. That speaks for just how well prepared our students are!

The lower school is good, but the middle and upper schools are weak. There are better choices in Baltimore.

The Best. Our Girls are leaders on and off the field and will go many places in their years to come. Thanks to the education and leadership they have at RPCS.
