Parent: I have been a Roycemore parent since 2003; all my children are either alums or currently enrolled.
Academics are consistently top-notch. They offer differentiation every step of the way, challenging each child at their level. Writing is emphasized throughout the school in a variety of ways, from extemporaneous in-class writing to detailed research reports to personal essays to creative stories. The science curriculum is strong, with lab work at every level.
Extracurricular offerings are slim compared to bigger schools, but students learn how to mentor each other so that the team can be the best possible.
The arts curriculum here is superb. Ruth Hecht is an excellent artist and an excellent teacher.
It is a small school with challenging academics and high expectations. It helps set a foundation for the remainder of the child's life, not only with academic and intellectual skills, but also with emotional maturity, interpersonal relations, and social and civic engagement.
