Rutgers Preparatory School, founded in 1766, is a pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade co-educational independent day school.
The School environment is enriched by students who come from a variety of geographic, economic and ethnic backgrounds.
Our motto "Severa res est verum gaudium" (Hard work is true joy) expresses our desire that students will develop a positive attitude toward learning and that they will be rewarded with a strong sense of achievement.
The School values intellectual curiosity and personal integrity, seeking to stimulate their development at every level.
We emphasize a strong academic program, creative problem solving, cooperation and group interaction, appreciation of culture and beauty, and healthy emotional and physical growth.
We believe that our students grow and learn best in an environment of trust, cooperation and open communication.
The educational experience of each individual student is most successful when students, parents, faculty and administration together support the School's aims and values.

Perfect size. Small enough for access for students to be involved and participate and larger enough to offer more than everything in terms of curriculum and activities.
