We've been at Ranney School for eight years now with two children enrolled since the early education program. We continue to be over the moon with our experience at Ranney. Eight years later, we're still so happy with our choice. Our confidence in the teachers, staff, academics, arts, sports, community, and well-rounded child focus is of the highest standards, and our children LOVE school.

Choosing this school is the best decision we have ever made for our children. At first we were hesitant, being in a good school district and with the expense, but we've learned that this is the ultimate investment in our children. My children just simply would not and could not have received the same amount of attention or opportunities anywhere else. The class sizes are small, the teachers are nurturing, caring and committed to getting the most out of every child, the children are treated as individuals. The campus itself offers so much more than any other campus in the area; swimming, tennis, basketball, baseball, art, music, robotics. We are so happy with our decision and we know our children will excel in whatever they choose to do.
