My daughter has had an outstanding high school experience at Head-Royce - I can't imagine a better school for her. I remember thinking, at my initial parent tour, what a remarkably smart, involved, caring, switched on group of adults running this school and inspiring and supporting the kids - this first impression was spot on. The teachers, administrators, deans, advisors, counselors, librarians, etc are superb. The overall vibe of the kids seems great too - lively and fun but also really bright, hardworking and engaged. Go Jayhawks!

Amazing school! The 3 pillars speak for itself! Citizenship, Diversity and Scholarship! My son attends 1st grade the teachers are phenomenal and the system is excellent I’m each area! The head of the school is a genius! We are truly blessed to be party of the head Royce family and what a great balance for my son! Social, emotional and academically challenged couldn’t ask more! Very well structured and amazing staff! We feel at home and our money is well invested!
Both my son’s and daughters’ classes have a strong sense of community and support from other parents and faculty. My children are learning important academic fundamentals but also, and more importantly, how to think about tough questions. An amazing faculty teach our kids to think about everything from Dr. Seuss’ racism to children who are homeless and what they can do to change our world. Over half of the students at Head Royce will always be minority - it is school policy. My children have Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Christian, Black, Latino, Korean, Chinese, Egyptian, Japanese, Indian, lesbian, and gay families in their classes and many of the families are mixed. It’s an amazing place and I highly recommend it.
