The Roeper School - Birmingham Campus Reviews

Roeper's claim that it is "more than a school" may sound like typical school propaganda, but it's largely true. While its programs in Music and Sports are mediocre (mostly due to the fact that there are only 50 kids per grade), the teachers are incredible and students are generally very smart and kind. I have three independent studies this year, in which I study fractal geometry and animal intelligence and compose jazz tunes.
The school has a social justice commitment that can at times seem a bit too much, but I ultimately really appreciate the school's bias towards fact over non-partisanship. Roeper has really shaped my worldview and my interests.

The school does not follow its so-called philosophy it disregards the equality factor and the fact that students and teachers should be equal. Academics wise the school is fantastic, but the teachers are very bad. The two best teachers at the school have retired in the past two years. they were husband and wife and were the last two that truly believed in the philosophy when they left no one was left to carry on the legacy of the original founders the Roepers. this school has sports teams that will make you want to play for them but historically they are awful, and the diversity is awful. The adminastation and teachers to give no regards to anyone who is mentally challenged with autism, down symdrome, etc... the school is not worth the money unless you can deal with all this like 90% of the students do daily. It will prepare your kid for college and give you a good education, but your child will go through mental considerations of leaving the school 7/10 days like i do.
I love this place. I've been in the Roeper system since Pre-K, and it has truly shaped me into the person that I am today. It has presented me with countless opportunities for leadership and growth, both academic and otherwise, has skillfully taught me both mathematics and morals, and it has created a community where I am accepted and valued. I could not recommend it more.
