A place where kids truly learn. The depth of programming, variety of class options, very small class sizes, and highly qualified teachers create an environment where actual education can take place. Students learn to take responsibility for their own lives and education. I was astounded to see how many of the teachers have PhDs. In many ways high school at Roeper is more comparable to college.
I only wish I had a chance to go to this school. Everyone is part of a huge community, and each staff member is dedicated and passionate about what they teach. My daughter tells me she has fun going to school every day, while still being placed in a challenging academic environment where she is pushed to do her absolute best. She is looking forward to go back to school in the fall at the high school, something I'd never thought I'd hear. Roeper is a huge blessing in our lives.
This school is not very conducive for a child's academic development. The teachers there are very under qualified and do not do a very good job for preparing their students for the real world. The teachers are very opinionated and do not keep their biases/personal beliefs out of the classrooms.
