This campus houses both Middle and High schools. Superior academic program; strong student-teacher relationships conducive to learning; math placement based on ability, not age/grade; 100% college bound; strong college counseling program; students are empowered to make decisions within a structured guidance system to provide limits; rich elective courses in all disciplines in all grades: 6-12. Roeper is a nationally respected school for gifted students. Construction has begun on a capital project to add a learning commons and state of the art library. This school is a gem! I'm a parent of two alums. Www. roeper.org

My experience at Roeper has been actually quite amazing... until middle school. My lower school experience was amazing (thanks in part by the head J.J. Morrow, when he left part of the school spirit left too), middle school just seemed unorganized. From going to my head with concerns of teachers not following the philosophy, to going to my head with concerns of students saying they are going to cut girl's lips off so they cannot kiss any other guys; going into the office made me realize at Roeper you can use your voice, but nothing will happen when you use it. The administration is completely immature and the board serves no purpose, as when you have an issue there is no where to turn. If you have a problem, you will most likely be kicked out of school. In the past five years, Roeper has turned into a different school, completely to the fault of the administration.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree

I have had two good teachers at the middle school, the rest are utterly mediocre for such an expensive place. Doing work sheets is not what we should do, busy work is ridiculous. We want teachers who challenge and care about us, and a lot of teachers just don't fit into the Roeper criteria.

Develops character: Strongly disagree

As a student, I believe Roeper tries to develop honesty, integrity, and fairness; however, the actions of the administrators in the school show the exact opposite of honesty, integrity, and fairness. How can students learn when their role models are the opposite of what they're trying to get across?

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.



- a
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.



- a
A great school for gifted students, excellent teachers, individual attention, strong academics and social emotional support.
