At Ranney School, we know and value every child through a student-centered appproach to education.
As an Age 3—Grade 12 independent school, we focus on helping children build academic, leadership, and interpersonal skills that prepare them for each chapter in their educational journey and beyond. Ranney’s teachers are experienced professionals who are specialists in their fields (more than 65% have advanced degrees). They inspire students to be curious and to achieve a life that is balanced and rich in learning, creativity, sport, play, and relationships. As children move through grades and divisions (Lower, Middle and Upper), faculty and academic leadership teams meet to ensure that transitions are smooth and to help children adjust successfully as academic and co-curricular responsibilities and expectations evolve. We encourage children to take part in building community and decision-making in age-appropriate ways to foster leadership, independence and an awareness of how their decisions and actions impact their community and the world around them.
Together, our innovative, rigorous curriculum, robust student life programs, and nurturing learning community graduates students who are resilient, globally-minded citizens prepared to succeed and reach their full potential.
