Dear Rohan Woods School Community,
I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to you and your family to learn more about Rohan Woods School. As the Head of School, I am honored to introduce myself and share with you the incredible educational journey that awaits your child.
At Rohan Woods, for the last 87 years, we have believed that every child is unique and possesses untapped potential waiting to be discovered. We have three tenets by which we live: respect, responsibility, and leadership. Our mission is to provide a challenging, integrated Project Approach to learning that will prepare our students academically, socially, and emotionally. It will also provide a balanced education that will empower your child with knowledge, skills, and values necessary for success in an ever-changing world.
Rohan Woods School uses Project Approach to provide experiences where children can utilize their core academic skills to learn about a topic of interest. We learned this educational approach through The Duke School in Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina, which is unique to the St. Louis educational market. Through Project, children have the opportunity to grow in critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and communication. While students acquire solid academic skills at Rohan Woods, Project Approach ensures they know when and how to independently use these skills to facilitate research and work seamlessly in small groups. We see exponential growth in our students’ ability to navigate the Project Approach process with incredible outcomes to share with parents and peers.
Our dedicated team of professional educators brings passion, expertise, and genuine caring to our school daily. They employ innovative teaching methods, creating an engaging learning experience filled with challenges that will inspire your child to love learning. We embrace a student-centered approach, recognizing that each child learns in a different way. This fosters a growth mindset and empowers our students to become lifelong learners.
As you do your research to choose a school that is a good fit for your child, I invite you to visit us and experience Rohan Woods School firsthand. We have heard, time and again, that you won’t “get” the Rohan Woods experience until you walk through the front doors. I invite you to come for a tour to discover how respect, responsibility, and leadership can prepare your child for a bright future.
