School Notes:

Roycemore has a welcoming, positive and energetic school culture. Students, teachers, administrators and parents work together to maintain a community that reflects the School's core values: respect for others, appreciation of differences, and a commitment to academic excellence in a challenging but non-competitive environment. This culture is supported by character education in Lower School, and Advisory in Middle and Upper Schools, where students select their faculty advisors and engage in small group conversation about issues relevant to adolescents. Parents are encouraged to be involved and to help enrich and sustain the family-like atmosphere of the school.Roycemore welcomes all who share our passion for inspiring young people to achieve excellence and who celebrate the wonderful uniqueness of every individual. The Roycemore community includes many different kinds of students and families from throughout Chicago, Evanston and the northern suburbs.

We highly recommend Roycemore! Our son is in the Upper School and is very happy. The academics are excellent, the classes are small, and the teachers are caring and engaged, with each student receiving individual attention. Roycemore is a very special place.
