The Rhoades School supports the positive development of bright, academically advanced, productive, creative, and socially able students in grades kindergarten through eight. Here, students are provided with an appropriate curriculum, a supportive peer group, and suitable guidance in an encouraging and thoughtful manner. We seek to establish in each student a singular love of learning for its own sake. From the structure of our curriculum to our personalized teaching approach, everything we do is designed to meet the unique needs and passions of gifted students.We balance a challenging curriculum with an added emphasis on social development, and are guided by four basic principles:
- We teach our students how to think, not what to think.
- How we teach is as important as what we teach.
- We work to instill a sense of healthy competition, collaboration and confidence.
- Satisfying our students’ hunger for learning is more important than standardized test scores.
The Rhoades School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, and is a member of the International Society of Technology in Education and the National Association for Gifted Children.
