I went to Roeper for four years in the early '80s. Those four years were the best part of my formal education. They treated giftedness in a holistic manner and the curriculum didn't simply throw harder and more work at you - it provided a richer, deeper understanding of the world and our place in it. The critical thinking skills, empathy, and joy of learning that I gained there have become my greatest joys as an adult. The goal of Roeper is not to get everybody into Harvard (although many Roeperians are accepted there!) Rather, it is to realize the full potential and happiness of every child regardless of whether that end is conventionally impressive or prestigious.

I transferred to Roeper from a public school at the beginning of my 10th grade year. By far, this was the best decision of my life. The academics are amazing, the teachers and faculty are among the most qualified and dedicated that I have ever heard of, and the other students are incredibly caring. I LOVE it here!!!

I attended Roeper for twelve years, and it was the best thing that ever happened to me. Not only was I stimulated intellectually, I grew up surrounded by incredible people. This is the absolute best school for any gifted child who can handle the level of freedom offered.
