  • Robert F. Munroe Day School provides its K-12 students with a college preparatory educational experience in a unique and beautiful environment in Gadsden County.
  • In an era of metal detectors and school resource officers in too many Florida schools, our students are part of a safe and supportive campus community where the teacher/student ratio is 1/9, and teachers are deeply involved in both classroom and extracurricular activities.
  • RFM offers a well-rounded curriculum, which is based upon strong language arts and reading programs.
  • Munroe's course offerings provide an excellent background for post-secondary education, including dual-enrollment college and AP courses.
  • We offer honors courses in math, science, history, and English.
  • We have a broad-ranging history program with courses spanning ancient civilization through current events.
  • In addition to academic courses, RFM also offers a fine arts curriculum including both visual arts and music.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this school. Their class sizes are small and the teachers are amazing! The students use IPad's and the classrooms all have smart boards. It has a true family feel and they take each students success very personally. Take a tour, you will fall in love!

Robert F Munroe Day School is a very special place! They had been in the community for over 46 years and truly take pride in educating children for the future. I know quite a few families from here and everyone is very happy with the education their kids are getting. 100% of their students graduate from high school while 99% go on to college! #rfmunroe #rfmdayschool
